The course instructor will assess the participants and lead them into tidal power they are able to manage, and much depends on where we run the course. We routinely undertake courses in Gimsøystraumen, the current flowing in Grunnførfjorden and under Straumsbrua in Svolvær.
You will learn how to break out of and into the flow, location and angle for efficient tidal paddling and also how the current behaves when it encounters resistance.
This whole course is about paddle, body and boat control, it is advantageous to practice before the course on bracing, sculling, steering front and rear and possibly roll.
