Private Coaching Day

I'm happy to work with you to deliver what you need and want for your paddling.

If you can't see a suitable date please get in touch.

Dates in the off-season can also be arranged as half days.

Suitable for 1-2 people, it can include:

  1. A look at improving strokes
  2. Seeking out rougher water
  3. Practising rescues
  4. Paddling along a challenging coastline
  5. Planning and preparation
  6. Expedition preparation

I work with a small number of other experienced coaches who may be in change on these days. I will share this information at the time of booking.
