High quality kayak instruction

9 10 2008

White water kayaking today is adventure, experience, nature and all about fun.

Material and equipment have been continuously developed to the highest standards.

Newly refined paddling techniques, sophisticated teaching methods speed up learning and make the sport much more accessible. The technical abilities of todays intermediate kayaker are already greater than standards over reached into the past. But even today the path is long to become an expert who can run a demanding cataract with ease and safety.

The new school of kayaking, the dynamic approach and the athletic paddling of today is a revolution for kayaking.

To become a professional instructor today it’s not, only, the diploma that counts. It’s, also, the knowledge, the experience, the skills. Coaching is a complex, thinking activity. It’s strength lays in the fact that we have gathered the best of what other sports and occupations have offered and used it to help paddlers get better at what they do.
