Beginner Kayaking Course

Type: Instructional Event
Minimum Ability/Grade: Beginners
  
  Trevor James 03 547 2295 whitewater@nelsonkayakers.co.nz
This course is for people with no, or very little kayaking experience who wish to experience the fun and adventure of kayaking and know how to do it safely. Based in a river environment with some white-water, the skills gained are transferable to all aspects of kayaking. Participants will learn the basic skills required to control their kayak, be made aware of the hazards that exist and how to deal with them, and will gain knowledge about the equipment used. In the tepid water of Riverside pool you will learn how to stay upright more of the time, how to roll if that doesn’t work and how to self-rescue if none of the above work.
