Whether you're fresh off your Grade 2 Course looking for the next step, or a seasoned athlete looking to solidify your skills in the Gorge, our Intermediate Multisport Course is your ticket to success.

You'll learn from New Zealand's top multisport instructors, led by senior instructor Sam Milne.  

We customise every course specific to your needs. Whether you want to work on your forward stroke, your river reading, or nail your roll  your instructor will develop a plan to help you get where you want to be.

If you have recently attended a Grade 2 Certificate Course but not yet passed, or have previously held a certificate that has expired, we can provide a reassessment for you during this program.

You'll train with us for three days in Christchurch, meaning easy access to the Waimakariri River. And, if the weather allows, we’ll take you through the Waimak’ Gorge on the final day.

Once your course is complete, you'll feel a lot more prepared to kayak in the Coast to Coast. You’re also invited to join us for more trips through the Gorge (feel free to book additional trips now, to avoid missing out).

If you want to boost your paddling skills beyond the bare minimum, this course is for you!

I have completed the grade 2 cert, intermediate multisport, and a guided trip down the Waimak'. All courses were invaluable to developing the required skills to complete the Coast to Coast Race. I highly recommend signing up with Canterbury Kayaking. — Robert Potts (24 January 2021).

 

My partner and I completed the intermediate course and did some rolling lessons. From these we gained confidence and learnt how to roll successfully. These skills contributed to a bolder approach to training and the increase in confidence led to a fun day paddling down the Waimakariri Gorge.  — Paul Livingstone (9 November 2020).
