• Creek 1
    The way to paddling class IV!
    Creek 1
    Run your lines smoothly

Paddle your line with ease and a dry spray cover! On class IV white water, you will only hit your line when working with the flow. In the Creek 1 course we take a close look at the currents and then use them for our lines. We analyse the currents and define exactly how to move the body weight and when pressure on the paddle is necessary to precisely run your line. Doing so, you by the way learn how to boof and how to elegantly run drops and stoppers.

We offer our Creek 1 courses in Tyrol, Corsica, Ticino, Norway, Slovenia and the Engadine. Depending on the course location and duration, the course contents vary.
