• Corsica
    Spring time on the island of kayaking!
    Corsica - start of the season 2020!
    Join us!

Corsica is not only one of the most beautiful islands of Europe, but also the hotspot for kayakers to start the season! Here you can find whitewater in all categories. While temperatures at home are still pretty chilly, corsica spoils us with moderate temperatures and great weather during that time of the year.

Course info

Learn a solid technique right from the start!

In the Basic course you will learn all the kayaking basics to independently run easy white water. We'll show you what to take care of on the river and how to use the gear correctly. The technique you learn in this course will be the basis for your kayaking career!

  • Revision of the basics as learned in the Basic Course
  • Short theoretical unit: the gear, currents in the river, how to eddy in and out
  • Control of the kayak: weight shifting and rotation of the upper body
  • Catching eddies: forward stroke and pull stroke
  • Control of the kayak: edging and pressure on the paddle blade

To join the Beginners Training, you should

  • have some experience in kayaking, e.g. after joining our Basic course.
  • be able to swim.
  • be generally fit and healthy.
  • be at least 12 years old (we offer special Kid's Courses).
  • Practise the basic techniques.

Confidently paddle class II !

In this course you will develope routine in paddling class II white water. At the end of the course you will be able to go kayaking class II sections with your friends even without 'better kayakers'. The technique you learn here is still valid in hard white water.

  • Revision of the basics as learned in the Basic Course
  • Theory: currents in the river
  • On the river: recognise and use of the different currents
  • Control of the kayak: weight shifting and rotation of the upper body
  • Catching eddies: forward stroke and pull stroke
  • Control of the kayak: edging and pressure on the paddle blade
  • Scouting: judging potential dangers and choosing of lines
  • Introduction to the use of the throw bag
  • Eskimo roll on the lake

To join the Advances 1 course, you should

  • have some experience in kayaking.
  • be able to swim.
  • be generally fit and healthy.
  • be at least 12 years old (we offer special Kid's Courses).
  • Practise the basic techniques.
  • Safely and independently paddle class II white water.

Intensive white water training

Are you easiliy paddling class II white water and would like to finally kayak class III? Or are you paddling class III anyway but would like to be a bit more confident? This is your course. We show you how much fun some more gradient and water pressure can be when you just rely on your technique.
In this course we focus on clean technique, use of different currents, judging rapids and group safety. We want you to get routine in kayaking class III!

  • Theory: currents in the river
  • On the river: recognise and use of the different currents
  • Control of the kayak: weight shifting and rotation of the upper body
  • Catching eddies: forward stroke and pull stroke
  • Control of the kayak: edging and pressure on the paddle blade
  • Scouting: judging potential dangers and choosing of lines
  • Communication and safety of a group
  • Boofing

To join the Advances 2 course, you should

  • be experienced in paddling class II white water.
  • be able to swim.
  • be generally fit and healthy.
  • Safely and independently paddle class III white water.

The way to paddling class IV!

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.

  • Being aware of your body movement: Movement of the upper body and use of the paddle
  • Analysing complex lines
  • Timing: precise use of edging and strokes
  • Boofing
  • Using different currents and obstacles in the river for your line
  • Communication and safety of a group

To join the Creek 1 course, you should

  • confidently paddle class III white water.
  • be able to swim.
  • be generally fit and healthy.
  • have a good eskimo roll (80% success rolling up in white water).
  • Safely and independently paddle class IV white water.
  • Get pressure on your paddle blade.
  • Run your lines with precision.

Perfect creeking!

Are you confidently paddling class IV white water, hit your lines perfectly and your technique can hardly be improved? Then this is your course! This course is about moving smoothly and swiftly on hard white water.

Paddle your lines without effort but lots of style! We'll show you how and give you valuable tips that will help you on difficult white water and massively increase the fun factor.

Safety is also an important topic in this course. But don't worry - we will not pointlessly be standing around with the throwbag in our hands. Rather, we will consider what kind of safety where and why makes sense and then implement it as quickly as possible. After all, we want to paddle!

In the Creek 2 course we assume that technically everything is mastered to confidently paddle WW IV white water. In the course we deal with tactics and give your technique the final touch. The program includes:

  • Analyse lines and paddle precisely
  • Find the fast line
  • Leanboof
  • Safely land after drops
  • Minimise effort by efficient paddling style
  • Maximise pressure on the paddle blade in the crucial moment

To join the Creek 2 course, you should

  • confidently paddle class IV white water.
  • have experience in saftey issues.
  • have a bomb proof eskimo roll.
  • Paddle hard white water with ease.
  • Correctly judge rapids and organise the run.
  • Be able to make a saftey concept to run diffiicult white water.
