This two-day paddlesport improvers course moves on from Paddlesport beginners. We will focus on kayak and canoe skills with a day trip along the Birmingham canals on the second day. This course covers the paddlepower Level 4 & 5 completing the paddlepower discover logbook. After you will be able to confidently paddle along in either craft after the course.
Moving on from Paddlesport Improvers is Paddlesport Intermediate.
On this course, we will look at all you have done and then put it to use on moving water. The first day of the course is completed at Edgbaston Reservoir where we look at the skills necessary to go on the river. We will also look at basic rescue techniques. The second day we will go and paddle one of the nice sections of the river that we have paddled a lot of times before. It is slow moving but with some little interesting sections, it is a great way to ease you into moving water paddling. Type of craft depends on water depth and weather conditions.
