About River Strokes Kayak School - Established 2007

While working in New Zealand 2005/2006 teaching kayaking, I began to realise how important it is for all paddlers to be safe, in control and have confidence kayaking. It is a passion to us that you learn the best skills right from the start and with good coaching progress forwards with your kayaking.

" 3000 fun coaching courses so far.. " - Dan

Our aim is to give you an experience that will take you away from the pressures of life for a day, to challenge you in a different way and ensure you leave with a new sense of self-confidence and achievement. Its a passion to introduce the pleasures of kayaking to all ages and abilities, and pass on what I believe is one of the best ways to unwind and loose yourself for a day and have a lot of fun in the process. The courses are fun, friendly, relaxed and professional.

Joining a kayaking course with River Strokes you will be able to use modern white water kayaks with adjustable outfitting. lightweight paddles, cags, bouancy aids, neoprene spray decks, helmets and wetsuits are all included in the course fee. You can park your car at our meeting point and leave the driving to us. We use a minibus to transport you and the gear to and from river location.
