Beginners Course

For those who have never paddled before or have little experience our friendly coaches have designed a beginners course that is suitable for anyone who fancies dipping their toe in the water.

In the spring and summer months the courses are held at Cosmeston Lakes Country Park where we offer a course to be completed over 1 or 2 sessions. In the autumn and winter months the courses are held in Cardiff International Pool over 3 consecutive Tuesday evenings from 9pm until 10pm. You will receive expert tuition on the water by one of our qualified instructors and learn the following

  • Kayaking basics

  • Familiarisation with all the equipment

  • Padding safety

  • The different paddle strokes and when to use them

  • Get a free Tuesday club session where you can join in with normal club activities or practice what you have learnt on the course.

The price of the beginners course is £50 per person and all equipment is provided. If you have your own equipment then we are happy for you to use that
