A great outdoor activity weekend in Wales kayaking

The weekend provides 2 days of training and fun on the water learning to paddle a kayak for the first time. Starting with calm flat water sessions to build your confidence, then progressing towards a short trip with some gentle rapids.

The introduction weekend is a great way to discover or try kayaking. The first day will give you time to get to grips with the boat and all the equipment used to make kayaking a fun and safe outdoor activity. Under the guidance of an experienced coach, the weekend will provide you with practice time to learn some boat control. We aim to help with the frustration of learning to paddle forward and provide comfortable modern kayaking equipment.

Rolling a kayak improves your confidence.

The kayak roll is one of the more tricky maneuvers to master, and may take regular training sessions. Rolling will become a very important part to advancing your kayaking skills. We understand paddlers fears or concerns and have a patient style to improving your skills.

This course is great for improving your confidence and support strokes highlighting a stable paddling position. The rolling technique can be a big leap in your learning, it is important you understand the actions required for a good effective roll, without putting strain on your body.

We do not say you will roll on the day, as all paddlers learn at their own pace. Breaking the kayak roll down into small sessions we use a simple method of teaching the roll and will tailor the training to suit your ability. This rolling course is great to improve your confidence upside down in a kayak and understand how to paddle more balanced and support yourself effectively.
