***ABC CHALLABOROUGH CLOSED UNTIL 2022***
We understand that taking up a new hobby requires a fair amount of commitment, so you may want to ‘try before you buy’. Our Intro to Kayaking sessions allow you to do just that! We’ll run through the different types of kayaks available and the kit you’ll need, while answering any questions you may have.
Then we’ll get you on the water and show you how to manoeuvre your kayak effectively, covering forward paddling, stopping, turning and bracing. We’ll also show you how to get onto the kayak from deep water (known as a ‘self-rescue’).
Essentially these sessions are kayaking lessons for beginners but with the aim of making you self-sufficient, with the additional knowledge of boats and kit.
Each session is 1 ½ hours long and will be both land and water based.
