FRENCH ALPINE PROGRESSIVE

Six days kayaking development using some the best rivers in the Southern French Alps with full board accomodation.

This is a course for progressive white water paddlers wanting to paddle and lead on Grade 3/4 plus white water.

The team at Fluidskills will develop and coach you in all BCU 5 star leadership structures and tactical kayak skills necessary for running and leading higher grade alpine rivers using up to date coaching methods and professional guidance.

The option of a Advanced White Water Safety and Rescue course during your six days with us will give your confidence a boost and enable you to be part of a group in Grade 3 plus gorges and deal with setting up rapids for other members of the group.

On completion of this course you will become a better kayaker for white water.
