Advanced Surf Kayak Award

Description

10 CPD Points

Your Advanced Surf Kayak Award is designed to advance your surfing skills, techniques and accuracy in decision-making for a safe day surfing in a range of environments. This includes reefs, points, offshore breaks and sandy beaches.

As we can now surf in more locations you will need to know the environmental factors for each location to ensure that you have chosen the correct place. You will continue to look at the bathymetric profile of the beach to decide where the best surf will be. As well as this, you will bear in mind any environmental impact your presence will have.

What does it involve?

As we may be further away from the shore or a landing point, you will need to consider what extra equipment you may need for a session on the water. You will also need to bear in mind how to get your craft to the water without injuring yourself or damaging the craft. As well as ensuring you have the skills to enact more challenging rescues should you need to.

You will develop your own personal skills to allow you to have flair and improvisation at the wave face. You will become confident in powerful, steep, pitching, fast, hollow and heavy waves. This includes riding the wave on your terms. You will learn how to link your manoeuvres seamlessly and which turns are the most effective. This includes how to ensure you are ending your ride on the most powerful part of the wave, the lip.

After each session, you and your Coach will reflect on what was successful. Together you will determine where to go next. This will be in accordance to your own personal goals.

Each day we spend kayak surfing further expands our skills and knowledge, creating a more enjoyable experience on the water. With no two surf experiences ever the same, we never stop learning. Continually evaluating the choices we make creates a natural evolution of decision-making and paddling ability.
