What to Expect

You'll start the week in our heated training pool and at local venues to work on your existing skills with our friendly instructors to help you improve.

Experience Required

This holiday is designed to be a fun and exciting introduction to white water, sea kayaking and surf kayaking for young people. It is aimed at those aged 12 - 17 years old, who have mastered the basics of kayaking, and would like to broaden their experience. You should have basic kayak control skills, and be able to paddle a kayak round a predetermined route on flat water. You should also be a confident flat water paddler with the ability to manoeuvre your craft with ease.
