What is the Whitewater Safety and Rescue?
The Whitewater Safety and Rescue training course is a British Canoeing certified course to teach you all the skills and techniques you need to keep you and your friends safe on Class 2 whitewater, whether in a canoe or a kayak.
Your coach is most likely to be the man you see pictured here; Owner and Head Coach Oli Kershaw
Oli has paddled around the world and guided whitewater from Class 2 to Class 5 in 13 countries at the time of writing. His experience of everything from big volume to steep creeking means the knowledge he imparts comes from experience, not theory.
With a sport that's progressing as fast as whitewater kayaking, we believe you have to continue to push yourself to be able to teach the most modern and advanced techniques. That's what we do, and very few others do it too.
All our coaching at Next Level comes from real boating experience across the globe and our coaches are all top boaters in their personal time. When they're not coaching you, they're sending 70ft drops in Chile, styling big volume in Norway, or competing in World Championships, so you can rest assured our techniques have been tried and tested! How many other coaches can say that?
The venues we use will depend on where we are running the course and on the water levels and conditions of the weekend. We will find the best venues to put your new skills into practice in a real environment, without things ever getting scary! This course will run on Class 2/3 sections of rivers.
