Whitewater kayaking

INITIATION 1: FLAT WATER

This is an introductory course to whitewater kayaking. You will learn the name of the equipment and the following basics: the wet exit, or the art of getting out of a capsized kayak, sweep strokes and the power stroke, braces, the assisted recovery, and the introduction to the roll. A must for a first time kayak experience or for those who wish to gain some notions. This course can be taken with Introduction 2, which we strongly advise to take on the same day in order to fully grasp the basic techniques and to put them into practice.

*Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult taking part in the activity.
