The wonderful thing about kayaking is it easy to learn and very hard to stop! Join us as we take you through a workshop designed by kayaking/SUP professionals Goodwave Adventures at a gorgeous Camp Monk Camp within 2 hours drive of Bangalore.
About the session:
This 6-hour kayak session is all about getting you ready to get down a river with rapids in style. We introduce you to the basics of the sport by teaching you the following techniques in the calm and cool confines of Campers Paradise on Manchinbele Dam, which is located about 2 hours from Bangalore.
You can also choose to learn or practice stand up paddling (SUP) instead of kayaking. We will be running both sessions simultaneously. In case you want to choose SUP-ing over kayaking, please indicate your preference while booking the session.
What will you learn? To get comfortable in the kayak in the water Basic entry and re-entry manoeuvres Fitness conditioning and warm up techniques before going out to paddle Unloading a kayak Launching a kayak Paddle strokes: forward, backwards, bracing and learning how to manoeuver the whitewater kayak.
Please note We do not offer any certifications for stand up paddling but we will teach you the strokes and manoeuvres as prescribed by the ACA stand-up paddling syllabus for level 1 & 2. We have a ratio of only 4 students per instructors to ensure that every participant is given adequate attention during the course
About the campsite:
A lush green natural space with blue backwaters, an hour drive from Bangalore, makes it a perfect weekend getaway! The instant you reach the place, you would be a victim of amnesia. You would forget everything and everyone as you set your sight on mother nature's beauty. The backwaters stretches more than 4 kms and is surrounded by the dense forest which is inhabited by wildlife. To add to the beauty, stands the huge single rock formation "Savandurga Hill" at the backdrop
