Fast Sea Kayaks

Intro to Fast Sea Kayaks

The increasing popularity of Fast Sea Kayaks has opened up new areas of paddling for many. This package introduces the sea paddler to a new kind of paddling; bring your own boat or we can provide Rockpool Tarans.

This session includes:

  • Familiarisation with a Fast Sea Kayak
  • Using a rudder
  • Good technique
  • Opening up a new world
  • Pro's and con's of FSKs

 

Intermediate/Advanced Fast Sea Kayaks

Building on the Intro package, these take the paddler into more demanding environments and conditions whilst concentrating on gaining the best from a Fast Sea Kayak.

This session includes:

  • Moving water
  • Open water
  • Wind paddling
  • Efficient Stroke and Technique
  • Using the rudder

 

Optimum Taran

Paddle a Rockpool Taran and want to know how to get the best from it? Following on from the Fast Sea Kayak packages, Optimum Taran goes into detail to get the best from a Rockpool Taran. Learn about this special boat from the man who designed it.

This session includes:

  • Trimming and fitting
  • Getting the best from the rudder
  • Customising
  • Moving water Taran
  • Downwind Runs
  • Fast and slow - getting the best in different environments

 

If you don't have a Taran but want to learn what all the fuss is about, we can provide kayaks for you to use, courtesy of Rockpool Kayaks
