Kayak coaching available.

It’s nearly 20 years since starting my journey as a paddle sports coach. Kayak Clinic by Outdoor Explore or bespoke sessions are available if you wish to improve your skills.

The photo above was taken exactly two years ago when co-delivering first-ever dedicated Paddle-sport Rescue Course at a basic level in Poland. This was part of my ongoing work in updating the qualifications system in my home country. This programme is known as PSKK and you can find out more about its aims by following the link below (it takes you to the official website):


Besides teaching in Poland or promoting, coaching and mentoring paddle-sport I also deliver courses and awards for British Canoeing for nearly 11 years now, mainly in Scottish locations.

All this means that joining us one of the Kayak Clinics or booking a bespoke coaching session you will be well looked after, developing your skills and completing own goals.

Working towards the specific awards and qualifications is also available if you wish.

The Kayak Clinic sessions by Outdoor Explore offer a small group of people (never more than 4) a quality time on the water, novice and intermediate skills level in three main disciplines; touring kayaking, sea kayaking and white water kayaking. Sometimes the specific aims are pre-set prior to the session but I am mainly focusing on your paddle related aims.

Occasionally you can come across rescue courses, open canoe coaching days, coracle paddling skills and even surf kayaking advertised with Outdoor Explore as well.

The upcoming dates and more about these regular sessions you can see by following the link below to our subpage:


Most of the times I deliver bespoke coaching days. This means you can set the date, location and the craft to suit you. We will create specific steps to help you achieve your goals as soon as possible. You will be given an action plan after the session so You can continue your progress in your own time as well. It could be half-a-day, a full-day or multiple-day programme created just for you.

So if you wish to improve your skills or maybe learn new ones in the paddle-sport,

get in touch;

Kayaking, paddling, exploring is for everyone no matter of age, experience and fitness level. If someone tells you differently, ignore them, they just don’t know the path…
