Have you ever heard about the Coast to Coast and though "I'd like to give that a go". If you have, or if you're already a kayak owner, then this course is for you.
We are an approved supplier for the Coast to Coast race!  

Starting with the basics of kayak knowledge, progressing through whitewater technique, and finishing up with river running; this course will cover all of the skills that you need to know for multisport racing. It's a great option if you are new to the sport but it should also a requirement if you are wanting to aim towards the Coats to Coast race. On completion of this lesson (and assuming you pass) you will be awarded an NZ Kayaker Grade 2 certificate. 

Booking a course: please contact Tim directly to discuss your needs. This course is very flexible so I can cater it to suit your needs.

  • Kayak: this course is done in both whitewater and multisport kayaks - we supply the whitewater kayaks but you will need your own multisport kayak.
  • Location: rivers throughout the Bay of Plenty. You will need your own transport. 
Times: 3 days - one on flat water, two on whitewater (more if necessary but at extra cost).
  • Equipment: whitewater kayaks provided but you will need your own personal kit (paddle, helmet etc) and multisport kayak.

  • Groups: will be no more than 4 people. If you can get together a group of 3-4 people, you will receive a $200 discount so the course will be $750pp.

What our customers say

quote Now I've stopped running I wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for your incredible guiding services to get us across the Cook Strait. You put faith in us, with a lot of unknowns, and it was so cool how we pulled it off. It adds such a special twist to what I've achieved, and I think it will be very difficult to re-create.
It's been a very special adventure and we're so grateful for your contribution towards it.
Best wishes,
Jez Bragg. 
North Face ultra-marathon runner.
