We Love Whitewater provides the best of both worlds: high quality professional whitewater coaching and a supportive and sociable ‘club trip’ atmosphere on and off the water.
The mainstay of the We Love Whitewater’s activities are weekend whitewater trips. These are to all paddlers from complete whitewater novices to experienced grade 4 boaters.
We accommodate this range of abilities by employing very low coaching ratios: our target is to have 1 coach for every 3 clients. This allows us to split into multiple small groups doing different rivers, or different sections of the same river. This way everyone gets the attention they need, and paddles on a river within their ability.
At the end of the day we all return to the same accommodation and swap notes and stories over a communal meal cooked by volunteers on the trip.
All our coaches are professional coaches with many years experience. The coaches will usually be staying in the same accommodation too, giving you the opportunity to talk over any learning points from the day or look at video footage, or simply pick their brains for advice.
These trips also provide an excellent opportunity to meet fellow paddlers from all over the UK and build your own community of peer paddlers. We actively coach independence and sound decision making so you can take what you’ve learnt and apply it beyond the trips.
