skiomkidsclub-02-copyKids Go Paddling Session

How to get the kids involved in paddling

We generally introduce the kids to a location that has calm water, minimal current and calm winds, so where we start is in protected bays in order to develop kids’ skills and reduce stress levels.

 

Length of Trip

SKIOM feels 45mins to an hour is sufficient for all first trips regardless of age. The session may take longer than an hour once we have had few moments of sitting in the cockpit at the water’s edge, introducing the paddle, safety briefing and packing for the adventure

By the time children are about 8 years of age, many are ready to paddle the kayaks, Most are also capable of learning and executing paddling skills.

Essential kit to bringĀ  kids-5

Kids need to be wearing a fitted wetsuit, sensible shoes, and of course food and water, food is never far from a kids mind (nor mine), We will often aim to get somewhere for a picnic,

To get your child start give us a shout, phone, email, social media.
