A progressive intro to dynamic water kayaking – skills, safety, adventure and fun!

Seeking a gradual introduction to kayaking in wind and waves, moving water, rock gardens and friendly surf? Our Intro to Dynamic Water course is for you! This course is ideal to develop confidence in dynamic water – up to 15kts winds, 2kts tidal streams and 1m waves. Rolling skills are not needed for this course – confidence in sheltered water will help your progress.

There are no formal British Canoeing aims during this course, although the skills and experience gained are useful for a range of awards. If you wish, we can provide training for the BC Sea Kayak award during the course.

The aim of this course is to experience a gradual introduction to Anglesey’s dynamic water conditions, with dedicated coaching to bring out the best of your kayaking skills. We’ll develop your boat handling skills, tactics and confidence. We’ll also explore planning, decision making, safety and rescue skills.

We’ll use venues around the Anglesey coast to progressively experience dynamic water conditions, at a pace and level to suit you best. On breezy days there will be plenty of protected venues to safely explore more challenging conditions, with calm water nearby. In windy weather, we can choose sheltered venues in the Menai Strait that allow us to confidently explore dynamic water skills in safety.
