Whitewater kayak course, level 2 - Voss, Outdoor Norway
This course will look at all those elements of the introductory course, however, it assumes paddlers will already have some basic grade 2 whitewater experience. This allows us to start the course on grade 2 and spend plenty of time consolidating these skills so as we can start progressing towards the skills and safety awareness required for starting out on grade 3.
In addition to this the two days will focus on safe river running strategies, whitewater safety and rescue as well as developing your personal paddling skills for whitewater.
Getting solid whitewater kayaking skills from our top coaches, there is no better way to improve your paddling and be whitewater confident.
The course will begin with a review of skills on moving water, thereafter concentrating on whitewater skills.
Before taking part in a Novice Course you should:
Have completed a Introductory Whitewater Course or have paddled a kayak in grade 2 whitewater 5 times or more in the last year period.
Be able to paddle in a straight line on flatwater.
Be able to ferry glide.
