Tailie Clinics

Slicey kayaks are back, and we love it!

Want to know how to get your kayak recklessly vertical with style? Got a new slicey boat but are struggling to work out your tail squirt from you pop outs?  Then these sessions are for you!

Our select few instructors have years of experience in coaching freestyle, white water kayaking and of course messing around in slicey kayaks. There isn’t a part of our white water course they haven’t block spinned or tail squirted! They will give you the knowledge to turn our white water course into a kayaking skate park!

The sessions will be very much tailored to the participant’s needs and what you want to work on! The Tailie clinics can be much more than about tailies, you may want to work on surfing, spins, boofing, wall grinds, and boat control, it’s really up to you, and our experienced instructors are ready to take you to where you want to be.
