Our Kayak Taster sessions are designed as an entry point into the world of Paddlesports. In this coaching session we will cover some basic skills which will ensure that you're safe and enjoy your time on the water. The main aim of these sessions is to get people into kayaks and enjoying themselves, plus we like to add in the basic skills of paddling forwards, backwards, turning, and going sideways.
These sessions are dependant on local conditions and maybe be based at our home at Farmoor Reservoir, or maybe the idyllic setting on the river Thames on the far side of the Club.

Taster Sessions are an excellent way to be introduced to the sport. You don’t need to have any previous experience, specialist kit or skills…just come and have a go! If you have been paddling before, our Taster Sessions are also a great opportunity to find out what we have to offer. Perhaps it has been a while since you were last on the water or maybe you want to share your passion, and introduce family and friends to the sport? Whatever your motivation, Taster Sessions will provide an ideal opportunity to get out on the water.Book Now
