CREEK&CLIMB

White water, sea and surf

Enjoy kayaking but unsure where to go next with the choice of white water, sea and surf kayaking.

 

Join us on this five day course where we will have a great time exploring the rivers and coast of North Wales, playing in the rapids, surfing down the face of a wave or taking in the coast line and watching the seals playing.

 

This course is designed for people that have some kayak experience and can happily control their boat, manouvere with ease and are comfortable capsizing.
