The courses for beginners are born from the need to teach the fundamentals of sea kayaking to those who have never been in kayaks or to those who want to improve their skills to make them suitable for trips typical of sea excursions. To overcome the common fear of getting stuck in the kayak after a rollover it was thought of a course that taught the student the technique of kayaking without the use of the spray skirt. Facilitating in this way the initial approach of newcomers to this discipline and giving the opportunity to learn later, the techniques of conduction of sea kayak proper. The first part of the course takes place on the ground, with a small theoretical introduction and with a live demonstration of the fundamentals that will be repeated and perfected in water. Then follows the practical part in water, under the careful supervision of the instructor that will allow the student to correct and improve the following fundamental:

  • kayak posture
    postura in kayak
  • paddle handling
    impugnatura pagaia
  • landing and launching from the beach
  • forward stroke
    pagaiata propulsiva
  • backward stroke
  • forward and backward circular strokes
  • stop

At the end of the course, whoever wants to can also try the:

  • assisted kayak rescue
    Risalita assistita

simulating a rollover and effortlessly getting back on the kayak following the instructions given by the instructor in the water.

N.B. The course takes place at the same time as our trips.
