Private Lessons

Private Lessons

Private Coaching sessions are an excellent way to spend time focusing on you and your needs. These no need to worry about what the rest of the group are doing or how many times you’ll need to be rescued or I can’t practice (insert scary skill) now because I’ll be holding the group back. 

No more excuses, we are there for you !

Whatever it is you would like to work on…. Flat water skills, Moving water skill, rolling, rescues, confidence building, decision making or learning to better understand how to read moving water. 

If you have a goal we will help you to achieve it, at our own pace. 

Our 1st session is usually a general assessment of where you currently are with a good chat about where you would like to go and by when ? Because a goal without a plan is just a wish ! And we are here to help you reach your goals. 

River Guiding

Do you and your paddle buddies have a river you’d love to run ?

But just not sure about tackling it on your own, would you feel happier with some extra support?

Our Team of highly Qualified Kayak Instructors are on hand to help, just get in touch for more info.

Massive thanks to Susan and her team from for a fantastic outing for Ferrycarrig Rowing Club yesterday.

We split into 2 groups and done a 2 hour scenic tour of the Slaney and Boro rivers.

Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the tour in a safe and relaxed atmosphere.

I would say that it's worth every second of your time, and if you didn't want to try it then I guess you're one of those people that don't like FUN because you're guaranteed to have a blast.

If I were to recommend the kayak academy to a friend I’d just be honest and tell them how brilliant it is. The enthusiasm, dedication, and friendliness of everyone in the academy, and the sport as a whole is something very unique and not seen in many other sporting communities. It truly is an honour to be a part of such a great sporting community.

It has changed my life and way of looking at life! Kayaking!

Its active, it’s lazy, it’s calm, it’s busy, it’s surfing, it’s swimming, it’s visiting caves, it’s isolation, it’s social, it’s group fun, it’s quiet, it’s loud, it’s laughing until you cry, it is facing your fears, it’s travelling, it’s sightseeing, it’s warm , it’s freezing, it’s a new perspective.
