TSK1 Module 5 Practical - River Trip

Greater London
sup - Up to 5 people

Description

This is a special session only for those who have completed TSK1 online theory modules 1-4. It's run from Kew Bridge, not our Richmond base, by our sister company, Active360.


It's a 3 hr session during which you will get a chance to put theory into practice incl. going against the tide and working the slacks, mixing with the rowers and crossing the river at the right points. You will navigate the Fairway and get a chance to demonstrate basic paddling skills needed to cope with the tidal river conditions.


If the weather allows, we may want to practice a self-rescue so bring a change of clothes in case (self-rescue is optional, we will not force anyone to do it).


You will be paddling with others who have completed TSK1 theory online but remember, paddlers come from different backgrounds, have varied SUP experience and fitness levels. Although we will try to ensure you get a good workout, we will also do our best to accommodate everyone's paddling skills and keep focus on passing on information gathered in the theory part of the course.


You may wish to bring your own board for this session - please discuss with us before doing so. 


*we need a minimum of 3 participants to run this session and we reserve the right to postpone if min. number is reached.


What to bring

Check weather forecast and dress accordingly. Bring a change of clothes and a towel. 

In warm weather we recommend light, technical, quick drying clothing, sun and wind protection. 

You must wear appropriate footwear - water shoes are best but an old pair of trainers will do. 

Requirements

Good paddling skills and water confidence incl. ability to carry out a self-rescue which we may want to practice if conditions allow.

Itinerary

How far we get depends on the weather conditions on the day and the ability of the group. Remember, we are paddling with the speed of the slowest paddler.
