Running Great Lines for Paddlers to Thrive on

Gene17Kayaking brings their short courses format to Norway. Simon Westgarth heads up these courses based in Sjoa.

The opportunity to learn and progress swiftly is common place on our courses, plus we’re have fun trying new lines and enjoying the great white water to be found in Sjoa. If you don’t see a course that suits you, just get in touch and talk to us. We can easily arrange one-to-one sessions, personal skills courses or any coaching you need.

Furthermore, we now offer a coaching only solution to our all inclusive trips in Norway. See below for dates and group rates.

It’s not just about top-to-bottom survival: we’ll teach you a bag of tricks that’ll help you style your way down as an active member of the group, rather than having to rely on someone else to show you the way.

With so many elements needed to be in place for the rocket to get off the ground, its hard to always grasp what they are and what methods are best.

LaunchPad takes a holistic approach to getting your desired lines, whereby Gene17kayaking will examine your performance, address any missing parts and coach you through changing your paddling. So the next time you’re trying to focus on all the elements in play to run the next rapid, you’ll be ready to launch from the launchpad.

Boof it, flare it or melt it? We’ll show you how to tackle pushier water, bigger drops and more challenging rivers.

We’re all about specific skills, so we’ll cover the whole range from break-outs to boofs. There’s no ‘drop in at the top and hope for the best’, but there is a new, dynamic freeride style, waiting for you to take it to the water.
