Course Information 

Our special trip of the month. Tailor-made for those based out of Chennai, we think that this is one of our best white-water programs we have designed so far. This two day course will be based out of Alamparai Fort, approximately 40 kilometers south of Chennai along the ECR road.  We checked out this location a few months ago and found the combination of flat water lake feeding into the might Bay of Bengal to be a perfect place to initiate beginners into this sport.

On Day 1 of this course we will cover the basics of  kayaking on flat water and teach you to get comfortable controlling the kayak.    See our Learn to Kayak section LTK  for the details. We will finish the day by venturing into the surf (if the waves aren't too big). 

Day 2 will be focussed on getting you to surf those waves in the kayak. In between the surf sessions we will re-examine some of the paddling and boat control techniques that we covered on day 1, so as the day progresses you might be in a position to catch a few waves and when that happens we guarantee that you will be left wanting for more.   

As always our qualified instruction team will have your backs and ensure that you have a fun-filled, exhilarating and safe weekend.  Still not convinced ? Check out the kayak surfing video below . (Video Credit: Varun Nayar )
