I think that buying a sea kayak should be a fun, happy thing to do, right from the start. So here’s the thing – I will only sell you a kayak if I am sure it’s right for you. If it isn’t, I’ll recommend another brand. That’s a promise!
At British Sea Kayaks we love to help our fellow paddlers build and develop their skills and confidence. Every session is bespoke and tailored to your requirements. We’ve adopted a contemporary coaching philosophy that puts the learner at the heart of the learning process, fully endorsed by our national governing body British Canoeing.
We’re based in the glorious and historic port of Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City. This amazing and largely undiscovered area offers a wide range of venues and conditions to suit all levels of learning and improving. For more advanced and challenging conditions we often take the ferry across to Brittany. Of course, you can join us at one of the many events we attend in the UK, Europe or the USA. So contact us now and sign up for some coaching to prepare yourself for your next adventure.
I’m proud to be an accredited provider for the full range of British Canoeing Personal Performance Awards, first introduced in January 2019. Get in touch to discuss your ambitions and let’s see how I can help you achieve those goals.
