COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Beyond The Next Step course is an extension to our Next Step Kayaking Weekend program.  

GOALS

The aim of this program is to start moving paddlers into self directed Class II+/III whitewater.  In all our programs we aim to have paddlers working on hard drills in whitewater they are comfortable in and then testing those skills on easily managed more challenging sections.  We start to work on a lot more combination moves to ensure smooth, efficient paddling and introduce some more complex safety/rescue situations.

OUTCOMES

After completing this course participants can expect to have a good vision of how skills learned up to this point can maximize efficiency when paddling more challenging whitewater.  Reading and using river features will be covered and paddlers will start to be able to 'feel' how using the river can help take their paddling to the next level.

NOTE:  This is a course often taken more than once by many participants.  We ensure the course content is varied and focused on each participant.  This is a very dynamic course with a huge scope for skill/confidence development.
