About the event

In the beginner's kayaking course, we get to know the equipment, the basic rules of moving on the water, water safety, the special features of kayaking and, above all, ergonomic and healthy paddling techniques. So this is a course where the purpose is to learn the skills to later go comfortably and safely on a kayaking trip, short or long. During the course, not many kilometers are accumulated, the teacher aims for you to adopt as healthy a paddling technique as possible for the future.

The teacher is Béla Pavelka, who has extensive experience in both competitive sports and leisure time paddling. He is a former top athlete, was the head coach of the Finnish national team and taught recreational paddlers for more than a decade.

Welcome to the course!

Suitable clothing is weather-appropriate, light outdoor clothing. Just to be safe, bring a change of clothes and a towel! As footwear, I recommend thin-soled gym slippers or open-toed slippers. Alternatively, you can be in the water with socks or bare feet when it's warm.

6 participants are needed to start the course  . The price of the course is 135e, payment instructions upon registration.
