Paddling technique, safety and kayaking experience

Lite Venture Kayak Courses

At the test location on the Mecklenburg Lake District (Krakow am See) we offer courses in paddling technique for all paddlers, as well as safety training for tours with sea kayaks.

Paddle technique and safety for beginners

The one-day basic course is aimed at beginners and paddlers who either want to learn basic techniques or refine existing skills. You will learn how to cleanly execute basic paddling techniques and also how to solo re-entry after capsizing in a relaxed and safe environment at Lake Krakow. The training sessions take place in your own kayak.

It is also possible to make an individual appointment for yourself or a private group.
