We can offer both River Rescue 1 and 2 training over a weekend, for people who want to develop their kayaking/river rescue skills. This is great for clubs, or for people wanting to work towards their NZOIA kayak 1 or 2. This training is run in conjunction with NZOIA and is led by local kayak guru Hayden Titchener (NZOIA Kayak 2). The level 1 course will be based on the lower Rangitata or Orari Rivers. The level 2 course location is flexible, but must be based on a Grade 3 river.
If you are, or have, a group wanting to complete the training please contact us. There is a minimum of 3 people per training weekend, max 10 people.
