Advanced Sea Kayaking and Rough Water Handling

2 days for £160

 This advanced sea kayaking course aims to allow you to really stretch your comfort zone and develop further your skills in advanced conditions. Come with a wish list of what you want from the weekend and Roger will do his best to assist you in achieving your goals.


Maximum group size is 4 people, so individual coaching addressing your wants and needs is realistic and achievable.


This advanced course is for those who have the 4 star leader award or 5 star leader training or similar level of ability and want to continue to develop rough water paddling, problem solving and leadership positioning.


Now its time to really experience the outer islands, to race down the face of a wave, to playing in that tide race with greater efficiency and control or practise an all in rescue, in rough water.  Either way you will leave more confident, experienced and skillful paddler.  So push your boundaries, discover your potential and perform. 


You need to be able to perform a rough water roll, have a good level of fitness and can paddle in force 4 winds.

"And I'm probably learning more from his mentoring now, as my paddling horizons expand, than ever before. I can't count how many questions I've asked... and he's answered. Roger has the knack of making that suggestion that radically changes your thinking and moves your paddling on in leaps and bounds."

Stella King

"There are a number of wonderful things about Roger. He has a very light touch in his coaching, and he's always smiling and encouraging you to relax into the enjoyment of the day"

Simon Turnbull

"I've just completed a two day 4* Sea kayak training course with Roger. Having been coached by Roger in the past, I choose to do this course with Roger because I knew I would get a great deal from the course. My expectations were certainly well and truly met"

A very big thank you for a brilliant 5 day trip... A few of the words that come to mind - exhilarating, exhausting, relaxing, forget about all worries, grounding, beautiful, spectacular ... fun, scary, confidence boosting ...  Loved the dolphins, bird life, changing seas ...
