Do you want to try some whitewater? Do you want to learn how to paddle in moving waters with the safety of an expert guide?

With our 3-hour introduction to whitewater kayaking you can build your confidence, learn a variety of techniques and leave you wanting more...

Our course is based on the River Stour in Christchurch, launching from Iford Bridge you will explore your moving water. The course is designed for anyone with little or some experience of paddling that wishes to progress further with kayaking.

Parking is available at the location, although limited.

What happens if the weather looks bad?

If it looks windy for your intended date, do not worry as our instructors are eager to get you out on the water, so we will work quickly to reschedule your lesson.

We are also limited to the tide, which is why our lessons are at certain times. If you don't see a date that suits you, please don't hesitate to email us to find your best date.
