the working week... in adventure education

Kayak Safety & Core Skills - Pool Courses

And some interesting swell conditions for rough water landing practice at Chicken Rock...

The February regular Tuesday evening and Thursday (extra) kayak pool courses complete this week. March course is full, and booking are being taken for the April course.

A heated swimming pool allows complete focus on skills, without the distraction of passing pods of Porpoise, stunnning coastline and interesting conditions :)

Pyrotechnics & VHF - Display & Training

Inside, and out of Adventurous Experiences Lecture Room. Evening training session on safe use of flares, VHF and precedures was provided by The Isle of Man Coastguard.

Many thanks Phil for a educational evening.
Further training with the emergency services in our specialist field of work to follow shortly.

Sunday Sea Kayak coaching sessions with the Adventure Club

In Port Erin Bay. Meanwhile, Kim was trying his hand at kayak fishing, with fishing kayak and gear supplied by Kelvin's Tackle.
One of the important ingredients to being able to safely train throughout the year on the Isle of Man, is the local climate we enjoy - and dressing appropriately for these conditions.

The advanced clothing now available to buy on-island, especially brands such as Kokatat watersports wear, making it a pleasure to be out in the elements!

Combining experienced, professionally qualified coaches, modern performance kayaks and kit with dynamic techniques, our trademark safe, fun learning environment is created.

The results are very pleasing to behold :)
