This is the kayak course for those who want to get a good basis in kayaking and at the same time get "Yellow paddle pass". The course is suitable for both beginners and those who have paddled a few times before. In the course we explore different swing techniques, energy-smart forward paddling and get the opportunity to train to rescue a friend who has ended up in the water (comrade rescue).

Our kayak course for Yellow Paddle Pass follows the Swedish Canoe Federation's course arrangement, which is an international standard according to EPP (Euro Paddle Pass). You can therefore expect a well thought-out course with structure and clear goals. You as a participant get all the opportunities to develop and learn all about the basics of kayaking!

Once you have completed the course, you have the knowledge to make day trips in lakes and protected waters in the inner archipelago.

 

No previous experience or knowledge is required, but you as a participant will receive all the necessary information, coaching and material from us. As our instructors have solid experience in safety and technology, this course also offers the more experienced paddler the opportunity to develop.

We have chosen to divide the course into two different evening sessions. This means that you as a participant can maintain full focus during the course and you get the opportunity to reflect between the different occasions. In addition, you will have the opportunity to train between courses yourself, if there is any part that you find difficult.
