If you have previous paddling experience and would like to learn more about safety and rescue, this is the course for you. You don’t have to be an expert to participate but it is good if you have previous paddling experience.
The Kayak intro tour aims at setting the foundations and to be part of a group. The Basic saftey course is the next step. The goal is that you now will be a more active memeber of the group, taking care of your self and your fellow paddlers. The focus is on safety and how to prevent accidents and what to do if they occur.
We start with a theoretical walk through equipment, route planning, weather forecast and risk assessment. This is followed by towing with short and long leash and how to help an person that cannot re-enter or has lost the kayak and finally practicing buddy rescue, self rescue with and without paddle float.
The goal is that everyone should feel more secure and have better understanding of basic rescue so that next time you will go kayaking you will have a toolbox of useful techniques and planning. Bring sun protection, water and extra clothes. We will treat you for a traditional “fika” (coffee and bun).
