8 in stock
This trip is for those of you who want to push your limits while being in the care of an experienced whitewater professional. Over these 3 days, you will receive professional coaching while out on fun and challenging whitewater adventures. Here is your chance to ask all your questions, learn in a safe (as possible) environment and have your technique picked apart so you can take the next step to become a smooth and effective paddler.
Sometimes it is necessary to unlearn bad habits that accumulate over time. It can also be hard to notice these yourself if you don’t have the professional outside perspective that is required to spot areas in need of improvement. The truth is, if you want to get those really clean lines, use less energy on the river and in general just rip it up out there, then you need professional coaching.
Come along, let me know what you want to work on and let’s improve while having a great time together on the river. After all its all about having fun isn’t it?
