Trip Planning for Sea Kayakers - Why?
We’ve all seen them, haven’t we? Board shorts & shirtless, barefoot, inflating their stand-up-paddle board or so called inflatable kayak. And there they go; no equipment, no back-up & no idea!
Can’t get back into your kayak after a capsize? You had better learn to all else it’s overs for you chum!
Buoyancy Aids - What Type?
What buoyancy aid should I get? What colour? How many pockets? It really doesn’t matter, so long as you wear the thing!!
Paddling at Night
Paddling at night, in complete darkness is a wonderful experience, somewhat surreal & completely different to paddling during the day.
Get Yourself Fit!
Levels of obesity, unfitness, lack of strength, lack of motivation is increasing year on year. Kayaking safely requires hours of practicing paddle strokes & recoveries & a basic but good level of fitness & flexibility.
How Hard Can It Be?
Dead hard! Sea kayaking can prove very difficult if you have the wrong attitude and even deadly! And a lot of people do have a deadly attitude towards the sea.
Rolling; Should I Learn?
If it was that simple, everyone would do it & schools like NOMAD Sea Kayaking wouldn't charge for tailored one-2-one coaching sessions. Is the skill of rolling a sea kayak even necessary?

Practice, practice & practice some more!
This may seem obvious but in our experience rarely happens. Spending your heard earned money on training courses is money well spent ONLY if you PRACTICE what your coaches teach you.
