NZ $300.00

Many NZ kayakers have been there and done that. It's our kiwi way and we're bloody proud of it! The only problem is that when it comes to the Coast to Coast race you'll find that you need a grade two certification...this is where we can help. 
We are an approved supplier for the Coast to Coast race!  

  • Kayak: this assessment is done in your own multisport kayak.
  • Location: Rangitaiki River. You will need your own transport. 
  • Equipment: you will need your own gear - paddle, helmet, yak etc.

  • Groups: will be no more than 4 people. If you can get together a group of 3-4 people, you will receive a $50 discount so the day will be $250pp. 
Topics assessed...
  • Basic paddling skills
  • Basic kayak control skills - railing, paddle strokes, balance 
  • Whitewater paddling skills - ferry gliding, eddying.
  • Reading the river, including race lines
  • River running
  • Equipment care and transport
  • River knowledge and language
  • Emergency rescues including self rescue on moving water. 
  • Rolling - you must be able to roll to pass this assessment.
Disclaimer: this is not a course and we will not be teaching skills. We will do a minimum of 2 runs down the river and up to four in total. We don't expect you to be 100% perfect at the beginning, but we expect to see improvements over the course of the day. We are there to simply assess your ability so if you're not up to the standard (e.g. if you bail) you will be deferred and we will make recommendations on what you need to do before you can pass. An extra assessment cost will apply in this situation.

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.
