Freestyle kayaking is at the heart of Rock The Boat Activities, not only for the diversity it offers, but also the social, physical and travel opportunities it brings.
The ‘Rockstars’ programme is our monthly clinic, delivered by well known and experienced coaches who not only teach but also compete or hold sponsored roles as paddlers.
This program is designed for you to access the long term, supportive coaching you need to help you reach your goals in freestyle kayaking. Along the way you will learn about new venues, water hydrology, that next move as well as meet like minded paddlers, building your own community of freestylers.
Every month we visit a different venue. The goal of this is to help you develop the skills to adapt your moves in different features.
It is up to you how many you attend but the more you do the cheaper it gets!
Not only do we offer on-the-water development but we can put together personal development plans for you to work on in your own time.
Once a year we then offer a Rockstars Euro Invasion trip taking a week to run to the sun and paddle freestyle every day!
Come and join us on the river!
