Beyond the Basics!



Beyond the Basics
The Bow Valley Kayak Club's "next steps" program.

The Beyond Basics course runs once a week, for six consecutive weeks, in the evening.

This program is for those that have the basic skills necessary to navigate easy rivers and are looking to improve their technical ability, confidence, and fun on more challenging features and different rivers.

During the sessions we will explore more parts of the river, gain confidence going through bigger waves and features, learn more about line-choice, river reading, maneuvers, rescue tactics, equipment, and teamwork.
Locations are usually the bow river and the kananaskis river.

This course is not suitable for beginners. The ability to navigate class 1 water, use eddies, and safely exit the boat during a capsize is necessary for safe participation.
This is a whitewater specific course done in whitewater specific kayaks. we are un-able to allow recreational type kayaks on our courses.

If you are a beginner have a look at our "zero to hero" courses.

Sorry, no future sessions are currently available.
