Terms and conditions
Although we do expect the boats to be used for their purpose and therefore some damage can occur, we would ask that you take great care and look after the boats you use. Treat the boat as if it was your own.

We ask that you:

Should boats get damaged due to negligence by the user we would expect the user to pay for repair or replacement.

Boats are allotted on a first come basis according to the payment date of the course fees. If you want to be sure of paddling a specific boat then full payment of course fees will guarantee this.

 

Vertical Element (VE) Paddles

VE Paddles Wild River

White water kayak paddles are definitely not one size fits all.

Using the correct paddle is crucial to advanced performance. Wild River believes that VE paddles offer a superb combination of performance, quality and value for money. VE paddles are hard wearing, made from pre-preg carbon and glass fibre and are custom made to order. This allows you to select the length and angle that suits you, to get the best out of your paddling.

On our courses you can try:
• Different length of paddle shaft
• A variety of blade angles
• Small or large blades
• Smaller diameter shaft for those with smaller fingers

Of course these can be set up right or left handed.
