KAYAK CONTROL AND BASIC ROCK-HOPPING
Lördag - heldag
Pris: 1900 kr
Samling 09.30 för kurs kl 10.00 - 17.00

A focus on control, timing and stability. Basic Rock-hopping begins with assessing a situation, judging timing, deciding a strategy and safely executing a maneuver in the rock garden. It also requires individual decision-making. Not every situation is appropriate for everyone, and it is important to be able to choose when to  watch or when to try. The emphasis is on understanding the situation, judgment and control rather than adrenalin-driven gambles. Bring your helmet.


FINESSE YOUR STROKES
Söndag- förmiddag
Samling 09:30 för kurs 10.00 - 13.00
Pris: 950 kr

Kayaking finesse involves making the best use of your kayak and paddle to gain the maximum effect for minimum effort. Please feel free to bring more than one type of paddle if you wish.
This class will focus on efficient turns and control, with edging, turning and forward paddling.  My aim is to help you fine tune your techniques for more efficient and effective paddle use, increase your stability, and get maximum turn with minimum effort.
I will layer the key details one easy step at a time, explain how and why the paddle strokes work, and how each small manageable step leads toward finessing your technique. I will also point out which techniques might best suit your choice of paddle and kayak, and your level of confidence.
