This course is 15 to 16 hours over 2 days.
Day 1; turnout 09:00 at Ørsvågvær Camping (signposted from E10, 2km west of Kabelvåg). We start the theory of seakayaking, weather and the coastal playground. Then we dress up for the challenge and go out kayaking. For the rest of the day, you develop your physical and mental relation to your body, blade and kayak. Doing everything you know offshore and then learn some more about bracing, edging, steering and surf. Rescue and self-rescue becomes a natural part of the day as you are approaching your personal skill levels all the time.
Day 2 begins with the update from yesterday and some new technical momentum before we start surfing and moving in the water part of the course.
