Single Sea Kayak Skills & Rudder Controls

This is 3.5 hours of training to improve your individual sea kayak skills before heading out into the Tolo channel to test and perfect them against wind and tide.

We spend our morning in the sheltered waters of 3 fathoms cove learning advanced paddling and kayak steering techniques in single kayaks. This will include steering your kayak with bow rudder, low brace plus edging and tilted turns. Understanding weathercocking and ferry gliding will also be introduced as well as beam and following wind paddling techniques.

This meetup is for those paddlers who have mastered the basic paddling strokes and want to take their paddling techniques further.

This will be the first time we have tried to have 2 paddling sessions in one day so any people who RSVP yes, please ensure that you have arranged plenty of time to get here.

I suggest bring a drink for after the session if you are coming in the afternoon. On Sat we will probably have a BBQ if people are interested in hanging around.

    Great work by everyone to improve their skills and for Asta to stay awake through the whole programme. Well done people.

      yay.. and I didn't ache at all later or the the next day which means I must have been doing something right! Thank you Dave for all your advice and expertise.

    Thank you so much Dave and all the girls in the group for a fabby afternoon. I really appreciated the time just to concentrate on paddling (and to help keep Asta awake!) Love all the input you were able to give, Dave, about the water and the skies. Loved it; I really feel confident now, for the first time, to rent a kayak without the meet-up group. Look forward to learning loads more from you.

    Hi I'm not certain where to meet. I've had a look on googlemaps and there is a wakeboarding club opposite some public toilets at kei ling ha san wai. Is that where I should be aiming for?

    August 16, 2013

    • Dave W.

      That is not a wake boarding club anymore. Thats us. Googlemaps does not update very well all the time.

      Oh, just noticed Narelle is not going. Would be happy to share my taxi from Wu Kai Sha~~

      August 16, 2013

    • Narelle H

      Sorry Deneb. Next time can give ride. I'm not confident of my paddling skills in such windy conditions so best give spot to those on waiting list.
