Paddling Tune Up

Kayak Argentina

Kayaking the Azul River in Patagonia

The 3-day paddling “Tune-up” courses are available in Argentina for whitewater kayakers or whitewater canoers.

A tune-up course is suitable for you if you are already a whitewater paddler but have not paddled in a while and want to shake off the “rust.” Or if you just want to extend your Rivers of Patagonia trip by a few days with some dedicated professional instruction.

The focus is to help you perfect your paddling technique and make you a more confident and efficient paddler.

Topics could include improving technique of the forward, back and sweep stroke, bracing, boat control, edging, river running, advanced eddy catching, the boof stroke, the duffek stroke, hole/wave punching and surfing as well as rolling technique and more.

Courses can be customized to your interests and goals.  Contact us for details & pricing.  If you are new to whitewater paddling we suggest you take a look at our Learn to Paddle week.
