Surfing the Swellies

PSK Performance Coaching

 

Intro to Moving Water

An introduction package to paddling a sea kayak on moving water, based around the Swellies in the Menai Straits. From reading the water to moving water boat handling; this is an essential skill area that is often neglected by sea paddlers.

This session includes:

  • Reading the water
  • Edging and leaning
  • Eddylines and boils
  • Waves and moving water surfing
  • Transits and ferry glides
  • Fast and slow routes

 

Intermediate/Advanced Moving Water

This builds on the Intro to Moving Water package and builds into precision handling in more advanced and challenging conditions.

This session includes:

  • Reading the water
  • Eddylines and boils
  • Surfing Standing Waves
  • Choosing lines
  • Fun in Tide Races
  • Paddling through Tide Races
  • Scaling things up
