Advanced Capsize Recovery Sea Kayak Lesson

This course is designed to build on your capsize recovery skills and practice in more dynamic conditions that you might actually capsize in! This course runs at the Ambleside Tide Race in West Vancouver. Your professional instructor will guide you through a review of rescue and re-entry techniques and ensure you practice in challenging but safe conditions of your choosing. 

Rescue techniques covered will include:

  • TX Re-entry
  • Parallel park and pump re-entry
  • Scramble re-entry
  • Paddlefloat re-entry
  • Adaptive re-entries for incapacitated swimmers 

After participating in this course, we believe your confidence to deal with a capsize in dynamic conditions will greatly increase!
