This course is a practical SEA KAYAK module for experienced paddlers.

The purpose of this intensive course is to transform the learned technique into practical skills, ready to use!

The focus of the course is aquatics and therefore awareness of body movements during paddling.

We cover and practice night navigation to use other senses besides sight which is more common used.

We cover tows and rescues with a new eye with the aim of increasing the ability to solve problems even when situations do not go as we would like.

Exercises be proposed in order to use the technique automatically and naturally.

We refine the roll to make it effective by including environmental and equipment variables in the exercises.


Two days of the course will be dedicated to the ISKGA Safety and Rescue Module.

During this safety and rescue module, you will learn how to gather all the necessary information to venture out safely.

You will learn the difference between proactive and inactive rescue, and then practice these techniques in areas where you might genuinely need them. We will practice various types of rescue beyond the classic T-rescue and kayak reentries in various situations, in addition to those already covered in the SKI 3 course.

You will gain practical experience in the use of towing and throw lines and understand why strict rescue protocols prevent situations from worsening.

You will also be shown how to operate within your L.A.R. (Limited Access Rescue) during solo paddles and develop sea survival strategies, along with a variety of self-rescue techniques.
