Learn the basics of kayaking and at the same time get an extra perspective on kayak safety.
The course is adapted for those who want to learn to paddle and at the same time want to feel safe when you are out on the water. The course’s focus is security. You will be given the opportunity, under the guidance of an instructor, to practice how to get into the kayak in case the kayak would capsize. You get to try to get up both with the help of comrade rescue and practice on getting up on your own. We go through several different paddle strokes so you can navigate the kayak safely. We also practice paddle technique as well as paddling with and without rudder.
