The Zero to Hero Beginner program is the 'keeners' way to enter the wonderful world of whitewater paddling. It is a package deal on many of our most popular beginner and intermediate courses that saves participants 15% off the rack rate. It includes your choice of dates on all the following courses:
The aim of this program is to introduce participants to the world of whitewater kayaking with a logical, safe progression and to help promote skill development, confidence, river awareness all in the first season of paddling. Our professional instructors aim to create the best possible foundation for paddlers first season in a kayak, setting them off on the right foot from a skills, safety and river awareness/respect standpoint.
After completing this full season program participants can expect to have solid paddling and basic rescue skills in Class II whitewater and to have experienced some basic Class III rapids. We also expect that participants will have the opportunity to meet other paddlers through our programs and also have access to local paddling clubs to help them get out on the water on a regular basis with some guidance and safety backup.
NOTE: This course is a combination of scheduled programs as listed above. After registration you will be contacted by an Aquabatics staff member to confirm the dates of each course in the program. THEY NEED TO BE DONE IN SEQUENCE and it is advisable to have some time between to practise skills with club trips or other paddlers for best results.
