What to Expect

The course will make the best use of the weather and sea conditions to ensure that we maximise our time in advanced water conditions. You'll paddle in tide races and overfalls, in and around rocky shore lines, amongst medium to large surf. You'll also cross to an offshore island that is over one hour from the mainland, and undertake a night paddle.

We want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal - you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified, staff to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development. What's more, you'll have access to our extensive range of paddling equipment and clothing to use whilst honing your chosen skills. This gives you the perfect opportunity to test out that new piece of kit you've had your eye on. You just bring yourself, your 'can do' attitude, and determination to achieve excellence.
