Introduction Sea Kayaking Course

North Wales - 1 day at £180 with a ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 - Maximum of 2 people.

 

 

Intro Sea Kayaking course, was developed after feedback and reflection.  Roger felt it was difficult with 5 people on a course to assist individuals who often came with very different aspirations, wants and needs.  By reducing the group size, you gain more attention, the day is more personalised and much more is achieved.  The adage 'less is more' rings true.

 

 

 

Introduction to Sea Kayaking course, is for motivated novices and beginner sea paddlers.   

 

What you need

 

  • A minimum of 3 days previous kayaking experience, on canals, lakes, rivers or white water.
  • To have paddled in the last two years.  
  • To be physically and mentally fit. 
  • Comfortable in and around water.

 

Feedback and reflection suggests that you are more likly to enjoy and gain more from this day, if the above is followed as a minimum.

 

This course will give you a super introduction to sea kayak handling techniques, enable you to begin to understand the connection and importance between body, boat & blade, plus a taste of tidal planning in relation to a weather forecast.  A key aspect of learning to paddle safely on the sea. 

 

 

This course is only available during the week and is popular on a Friday or Monday so why not consider,  along weekend exploring the delights of Anglesey or the stunning area of Snowdonia.  

 

Anglesey has a vast coastline so we can almost always find a suitable location, however if the weather is particularly bad we can go inland to a beautiful glacial lake at the foot of Snowdon.  Due to the very small group size, you get more individual attention, helping you to progress faster, cover more material, skills and paddling tactics.  

 

What do we provide on the day?

  • wetsuit long-john (has no arms to assist rotation)
  • hooded paddle jacket
  • personal flotation device (PFD)
  • spray deck (to stop any water coming into the seating area)
  • paddle
  • dry bag 
  • and a choice of 8 different sea kayaks
  • high level coaching and a great depth of local knowledge

 

What do you get at the end?

  • An action plan to take you forward
  • photos as part of the course cost and video if suitable and relevant (unless you would rather Roger I didn't).  These will be emailed to you and are also a great memento.
  • Roger will be available to answer any future questions you have, following your day and into the future, to further assist you with your sea kayaking. 
  • £20 of your next sea kayaking courses, for the next year to further help you keep your momentum.  For example, if you book one further course you get £20 off, if you book 3 or 5 further courses or days you get £20 of each day or course for the whole year.  Make a fantastic saving and really develop those essential skills, knowledge and  confidence.

Thanks for the photos and feedback. We both had a really good time and feel we want much more of what we did and beyond ! Your expert tuition, guidance and understanding of our needs has been fantastic and we cannot thank you enough. To that end, please could I give you some dates that would be good.   Tracy & Andy - Derbyshire

 

 

Thanks so much Roger. Great pictures. We both had a wonderful day & really cherished the opportunity to do something completely for ourselves in the midst of a frenzied week of family reunions. I think we have also both been inspired to try find time in our lives to do some more paddling - on both sides of the globe!

Best wishes,
Jenny

"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."

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"

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"

Thanks very much for an excellent weekend! ... We appreciated all you put into the weekend's arrangements, the sea kayaking and your coaching to meet all our differing needs and aspirations .... paddling amongst the sea birds and seals was pretty magical and uplifting.
