Canoeing, Sea Kayaking and White Water Kayaking Courses and Coaching in Northumberland and the North East, with experiences you’ll always remember.
Come and join me and learn these extraordinary skills. I understand you have your own way of learning, and want the very best for you. You’ll learn the skills to paddle more efficiently, with greater skill and also how to make the right decisions at the right time so you can be safe on the water.
Of course, canoeing and kayaking are practical activities.You can be sure to receive coaching of the highest quality as I hold the top British Canoe Union Coaching qualification (BCU Level 5 Coach) and have a wealth of experience that only comes from dedicated practice and development. Our time together will be well spent, and the benefits will extend beyond your training course as it will set the background for your future development and excellence.
As I train and assess other canoe and kayak coaches, I have a breadth and depth of knowledge far greater than most. You will receive exceptionally good training, and people come from all backgrounds to benefit, develop and improve their skills. And the benefits extend beyond the water as you’ll find a library of articles, demonstrations and videos on technique and skills here as a free resource for you to use.
