Portugal course November 2017
I joined Mad Goats on a trip to Portugal for their 4-day kayak course and learnt a lot more than expected! I trained many different paddling techniques, paddle speed, rolling and rescues. Portugals coastline is facing the Atlantic Ocean, which means strong tides, oceanic currents and waves bigger than in Oslo Fjord. This made training more demanding but much more rewarding. We also had the opportunity to test bodyboarding and surfing, which has given me a greater knowledge of how water moves and how to work with with it. This is especially useful if you have to land your kayak in waves - it is also a lot of fun!! During the course, both instructors were close and helped me immediately when I was in need. I found that the training was safe, professional and adapted to the level of each participant, both at sea and when we practiced in the pool. Taking this opportunity and training in Portugal has been incredibly rewarding and made me a much better and safer paddler. Highly recommended!
