Further details

What level should I be? 

 

We run this course at levels 2 and 3.   Find out the level as a sea kayaker, you find yourself best suited.

Each day will start with a coffee and time to plan the day ahead.  In order to have a safe day out on the sea, we need to make some considerations to factors influencing our decisions, which may include the weather, tide and swell plus features of the location we choose.  We can take each of these factors into consideration and ask ourselves some questions to ensure the correct decisions are made.

The Foundation Development Sea Kayaking course is designed to develop your skills and ability, to apply appropriate decision making for an enjoyable and safe day out on the sea. We will progressively work towards developing your core foundation skills.
