Moving on to White Water (possible BCU 3 star Canoe/Kayak Training or Assessment)
White water kayaking and canoeing are exciting dynamic activities which require skill and confidence. Our aim is to allow you to develop your basic skills and take them onto the next level. With courses from 1 day to 5 days Joint Adventures instructors can get you to progress confidently onto moving water.
One or two day courses are for those who have good control of their kayak or canoe on flat water, and wish to develop skills to paddle white water up to grade two. Following a short review flat water skills, the rest of the course will involve skill development to include breaking in and out of white water, surfing small waves, and river reading skills.
For those with less experience and good fitness we offer a 4 or 5 day course which takes you from the basics of flat water skills to running your first river.
