Sea kayaking course - level 1

Vaxholm
Our Level 1 Sea kayaking fundamentals is so far our most popular kayak course. A course content is very much practical-based so there will be a little theory and a lot of exercises on the water to boost your paddling skills.
 
... and yes, you will get wet! No water, no fun but we have a warm sauna waiting for us after all!
 
Courses are in English as we used to have very international guests which makes us very happy 🙂 Other dates, priv groups or swedish speaking leader is possible on request.
 
Goal: develop your paddling skills and practice rescueing

A course content is very much practical-based, corresponding to Euro Paddle Pass Yellow / BC Paddle Explore. In fact you will get more than that because we added elements from higher levels which we consider important for you.

Course will cover things like:
- kayaking equipment, carrying and loading
- launching and landing in different spots
- route planning and weather forecast
- efficient paddling technique
- changing direction, turning and moving sideways
- edging and avoiding capsizes
- paddling as a part of group , how to help a friend
- capsizing, wet exit and re-enter kayak, T-rescue
- balance exercises
