The course will be tailored to suit the participants, and we can focus on learning more technical skills to run whitewater, or incorporate slalom racing, or downriver racing, even surfing.
This is a fun and challending course for junior athletes or adults.
The course teaches you to use moving water, and giving you the skills you need to master beginner whitewater.
