NPF Våttkort Intermediate Course

Take your kayaking skills to the next level on this weekend adventure in Hvasser!

For those of you who already have some paddling experience but want to hone your skills and abilities in a sea kayak, we offer the intermediate course (teknikkurs).

Throughout this two-day course, you will learn how to manoeuvre the kayak in medium-sized swell and windy conditions. This course features rock-hopping, surfing, intermediate rescues, difficult landings and basic camp craft.

This is not only a course; it is also a two-day kayaking adventure where we will all be camping, telling tales around a fire and making new friends!

On completion of the course you receive the NPF Våttkort Teknikkurs Hav – a nationally recognised qualification.

The freedom of the ocean awaits you!
