27 Jun Cornish Surfari
12th – 13th September 2020 (Weekend)
21st – 25th September 2020 (Five Day)
Cornwall has the best surf beaches in Britain; the surf zone. As well as being incredibly good fun, it is one of the best environments where the sea kayaker can further develop his skills and understanding of dynamic wave action. On this course you will not only learn how to ride on a wave, but you will also learn how to read this amazing environment. You will learn about the different wave types, the nature and types of rip currents, the effects of an off shore wind, and why sea bed morphology is so important to understand.
During the course you will be taught how and when you need to commit to rescues, how to escape from a rip, when not to tow in the surf, and where to gather information to choose for yourself, an appropriate play venue.
This course can be run over two or five days and is run twice a year.
