Confidence Booster

Big smiles

The mental side of white water kayaking is the most challenging part of the sport for most people. Losing your confidence can happen to anyone, of any standard. Let us help you past that mental block towards happy, relaxed and enjoyable paddling at whatever level you’re at. We use a range of methods including visualisation, mental rehearsal and focusing as well as our usual top notch technical analysis of what you’re physically doing on the water to help you see an all round improvement. Low ratios and highly experienced coaches ensure that you will have a very productive weekend, tailored to your needs.

You’d be amazed how transferable a lot of these mental techniques are to other areas of your life too. Perhaps this course will give you more than a boost for your paddling?
