For you who have not been in a kayak before, but want to get a good start on a lifelong interest.
Or have tested a few times but want to be able to paddle in a more efficient and safer way.
The aim of the course is for you to feel safe and secure in the kayak,
gain knowledge about the equipment and an increased interest in kayaking.
We start on land with theory, where we go through what equipment and kayaks look like and what it means for the paddle experience. We will also go through important things to think about in terms of safety. After the moment on land, we go out on the water. First the really protected water closest to the pier where you can practice paddle technique and feel the kayak before we go through the harbor and around nice islands. Throughout the trip, there is an instructor who can come up with tips and tricks for paddling. We end by overturning and then practicing peer rescue (getting in the kayak from the water with the help of a friend). Then you have the kayak available for the rest of the day if you want to explore the area further.
No previous experience is required.
One requirement, however, is that you must be able to swim at least 200 meters.
