Further information

This course builds upon the solid foundations skills course. You already have a good idea about forwards paddling technique, edging and turning the boat and you have already completed a rescue training.

The weekend is designed to develop your toolbox further and sharpen up the skills you've already learnt. It's an ideal course to take after you've had time to consolidate after the foundation course and is also a good refresher of the basics. It takes you a step further with more strokes and more detail.

As with all our courses we focus on the broad themes of rotation, edge, power transfer and feel. We also take a deeper look into our most challenging stroke... forwards paddling. Often overlooked, we paddle forwards more than anything else and there are many things we can do to make ourselves more efficient. Once mastered this gives us more power when needed, means we can paddle quicker and for longer and when that windy day arrives, we're ready for it.

Ein super Kurs, um die Paddeltechnik aufzufrischen oder wie in meinem Fall zu verbessern. Ich habe viel dazugelernt, bin sicherer auf dem Kajak unterwegs und so macht das Paddeln immer wie mehr Spass :-). Ich kann den Kurs sehr empfehlen. Und nicht von sogenanntem schlechtem Wetter verunsichern lassen! Es war definitiv ein Erlebnis, den Brienzersee bei Nebel zu erleben. Vielen Dank Dave für diesen tollen Tag.

Ich habe meine Technik verbessert. Es war ein gutes Wahrnehmungstraining wie ich eine Bewegung ausführe und bekam von Dave wervolle Tipps, wie ich noch leichter und effektiver paddeln kann.
Vielen Dank für den interessanten Tag.

I'm thrilled once more. Absolutely great course, informative, demanding (windy weather helped with that ;-)), kayaking is addicting. Thank you Dave!
