Intermediate White Water Kayaking Skills

Do you want to improve your white water paddling?

So you’ve mastered the basics and fancy taking the plunge into more challenging white water? Possibly getting back in the game after a lengthy break? Or if you just want to polish up those skills, this is the course for you. At Wild River we will take you through the processes of becoming a more proficient paddler, using a mixture of practical exercises, some bank theory and river reading techniques. Hopefully time on the water with one of our fully qualified Level 5 Coaches will leave you feeling more confident than ever before!

We can:

  • Develop your river reading skills
  • Use the features on the river to your advantage
  • Consolidate your eddy line skills to get the most from every turn
  • Challenge your skills to move up to harder water

On our intermediate course we will take you to wherever you are comfortable and challenge you to improve your skills.

Our highly qualified and experienced staff will push you at the pace that suits you and prepare you for a higher level of challenge as the course goes on.

Working with small student numbers these courses are tailored to the needs of the individual within the group. Sample itinerary are listed below but please note that this course is very adaptable.

On this course you will have the opportunity to gain one of new British Canoeing White Water Performance Awards.


For this course you will need:

  • A white water kayak with plenty of buoyancy.
