Beginners Courses

Become more awesome, learn how to kayak!

The club runs two beginners courses each year. Each course is 2 weeks long and
includes all the required gear that you’ll need. The 2018 course dates are:
Course 1: 2-14 October
Course 2: 23 October – 4 November

The beginners courses are taught by club members. The course sessions are on
Tuesday and Thursday evenings and two weekends. The weekday sessions include 3
pool sessions and a surf session. The first weekend consists of 2 half days close to
Christchurch and the second weekend is 2 full days spent near the river (it is an
overnight weekend). In addition, new paddlers are strongly encouraged to come on
the Show Weekend trip to consolidate their skills before heading out on other club
trips. For safety reasons we reserve the right not to take paddlers on club trips
when they have not yet developed the required skills.

The cost is $395 per person ($100 deposit to confirm a place, balance payable by 1
September). This includes a years membership of the club.
