Surviving the Impact Zone – Essential Sea Kayak Skills

This exciting, dynamic training session focuses on developing
essential sea kayaking skills in rocky environments.
Practical and educational, this workshop covers a variety of
important themes, including:

  • Recognising the effect of rock features, sea bed, wind, waves, swell – & their interaction with kayaks / swimmers
  • Developing safe launching / landing skills, in varied conditions
  • Exploring ‘out of boat’ swimming skills
  • Developing practical rescue skills – in gullies, channels,
    rock gardens, lee shores
  • Enhancing teamwork – communication, decision-making

This workshop is an excellent choice for groups, leaders and coaches who work and play in rocky sea kayak environments, and combines extremely well with our ‘Safer Sea Kayaking’ workshop.

The workshop is suitable for any paddlers at BC 3-4 Star standard. There’s no need to be a leader or coach – this training is useful for all paddlers.
