WHITEWATER KAYAKING - 2 DAY BEGINNERS COURSE
During two days on the river, you get to learn all the basics to get into the wonderful world of whitewater kayaking. During the course, you will learn safe behavior on the river and a lot of other fun things. The course will give you the “Våttkort” from the Norwegian Kayaking Association.
On the first of two days, we will begin on flat water and practice getting in and out of the kayak, in and out of backwater, practice different paddle strokes, the crossing of rivers, and you will learn about safety and equipment. Day two we will practice all the elements from day one on a grade two river.
The course is suitable for everyone between 16 and 60 years who wants a really fun weekend. If you have experienced sea kayaking you will probably learn techniques that you can use later in the sea kayak.
During Ekstremsportveko 2022 it will be held two different courses. The first one is held during weekend 1 (25.June-26.June), and the second one is held during weekend 2 (02.July-03.July). These courses are exactly the same but will be held twice during Ekstremsportveko 2022.
