Moving towards white water skills, with a good understanding of foundation river skills. Also Ideal for 2 star standard paddlers, or improving kayaking confidence, and fixing a bad roll.

Swimming pool sessions and river application
This is a new course to give you a great start to understanding the kayak rolling technique, application of support strokes and fundamental boat rescues.

For an instructor is it always challenging and frustrating teaching the roll and trying to condence the hardest move in the book into one pool session. The mental and pysical stages of change and learning requires the elements to be broken down and practiced. Focusing on each of the 3 main steps per day is really benificial to development and understanding.

8 hours indoor pool time spread out through the week
