Kayak Trial Day
The ideal day to try kayaking for the first time!
If you are interested in jumping in a whitewater kayak for one day for the first time, this trial day is the right program for you.
Schedule for the kayak trial day:
Meeting point for our course is the Basecamp Salza in Styria. After meeting your instructor he will explain the program for the day. After that you will be equipped with all the necessary gear.
Shortly after we will drive to our lake where you will do you very first paddle strokes on flat water. Of course we show you first the right use of the material, the correct way to exit the boat once it capsized, furthermore, the first basic paddling strokes. Our goal is to give you control and confidence in your kayak.

In this calm atmosphere we have enough time to show you all the basic techniques. Aside from the technical part, the fun section also plays a big role on this day. We will play some games between the technical sessions where you might end up doing a "half eskimo roll" every now and then.
