On our courses we use the ACA system (American canoe association) as a guide line for instructions. This is well known system all over the world and in the end you'll get a signed participation card saying that you have taken part in this course. 


On this course we pay more attention to the different steps we need to go through when prepare our selves for an longer excursion. We also put more focus on our paddle technique and boat control as we now may end up in slightly more challenging conditions because of wind and open water venues. We make sure that, at all times, you feel comfortable and in control of your kayak. We will have a friendly and safe environment in which you are challenged but not pushed out of your stretch zone. We work with small groups of a maximum of 6 persons and have a close communication through out the day. 

 

We start the day at 10.00 AM at our kayak center and while we enjoy a coffee we have a quick chat about the days activity. Soon everybody will get their personal kayak and equipment and we start the practical part of the course. Along the day we'll vary different subjects as techniques, theory and rescues. We'll have lunch on an island if the weather is good and the course also allow us a short day trip as we practice what we learnt. The goal of this course is that you'll be able to safe and efficient paddle within a group environment.
