Your kayaking lesson will be on the Snowy River on easy grade 1 rapids and moving water at my home here in the Snowy Mountains. You can come as an individual or family group, and the lesson and learning will be catered for your group size and skill level. When you arrive we will fit you out into your kayaking equipment and do a brief dry land skills session on how to use a paddle and get in and out of a kayak safely. Then you will be given a water demonstration on how to enter and exit kayak and swim it back to shore, before you will have a go (weather temp allowing). If cold we can do this without getting wet! Then a basic skills session continues with learning how to paddle correctly using basic paddle techniques for forward, reverse, sweep strokes and draw strokes. Now for a game to practice your new skills. A lunch break will be planned for you to have a bite to eat , use the bathroom and get ready for the next half of your lesson. Tea, coffee and cold drinks are provided. In the afternoon we will begin to use our new skills to play in the moving water. You will learn how to break in and out of the current safely, and how to paddle across and down river with your new skills.
I began kayaking on rivers over 25 years ago, and since then I have taught thousands of people how to kayak both here and overseas. 15 years ago I bought land on the Snowy River so I now have my own little bit of rapids infront of my home and am still teaching people how to paddle here. I have a Diploma In Outdoor Recreation and obtained my White Water Kayak Instructor Qualifications from Australian Canoeing. I have taught individuals, small groups and kids all how to kayak and play in moving water on rivers. I believe you are never to old or young to learn. Come kayaking with me!

Missä tulette olemaan
You will come to visit the Snowy River below Jindabyne where recent growth in water releases are bringing this majestic river back to a little of it's former glory. You will be paddling in crystal clear water with a rocky bottom with even a chance of the resident platypus making an appearance.
