Whitewater Paddling Course 6.-7.7.
Learn the basics of whitewater paddling and enjoy the unique vibe of Strömfors Outdoor during this overnight course.
After this intensive course you are familiar with the basic techniques of whitewater paddling. You can also assess risks, and paddle independently and safely in easy rapids.
The course starts on Friday at 17.00 in Strömfors. After accommodating you to Strömfors Outdoor’s Krouvimmäki boarding house, we will gather in Outdoor Factory to talk about whitewater paddling theory. The theory will be put into practice in the calm waters of Strömfors where we also train wet exits.
Dinner will be served In Strömfors Bed & Bistro.
Saturday starts with a breakfast, packing equipment and transportation to Ahviokoski rapids. We’ll spend the day training different paddling techniques in currents and reverse currents. We enjoy lunch outside and continue drills until late afternoon. We then pack our gear and return to Strömfors for sauna and supper. We say goodbyes around 18 o’clock.
