Before the summer, most of my kayaking definitely sat in type 2 fun. I was shit scared whilst it was happening, sometimes in tears. But as soon as I got off, I’d have the biggest, beaming smile on my face. Here we walk through the three types of fun.
The White Water Leader training is a compulsory part of the British Canoeing White Water Leader qualification. It’s typically 2 days of training which covers the leader syllabus. The official description can be found on the British Canoeing White Water Leader pages.
