Welcome to The Paddle Clinic

Multisport. Surf Ski. Sprint. Marathon.

Specialised kayak coaching from beginner to racer. 




Benefits and Services

From beginner to professional, we cater for all levels of paddler. 

If you're training for The Coast to Coast or other multisport races for the first time then the beginner Clinical Trial is a perfect combo before, after or alongside doing your grade 2 certificate. The grade two course equips you with the skills for moving water but it doesn’t make you proficient with a wing paddle or fit enough to use it.  The closer to race day we get the more guides and instructors become the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff.



We see the challenges athletes face, especially across experience, time and cost, so we're doing something about it.

Experience: We assist multisport coaches in an area that many have less experience participating and teaching. With regular reporting and suggestions for their athletes programmes we can assist to fill that gap and take out guess work.

Accessibility: We want to make it as easy as possible to get great kayak coaching. So beside affordability, time flexibility and our experience we mostly operate out of Arawa Canoe Club, Christchurch. Arawa has boats available for club members or you can store yours there and we have access to more boats also for other locations.
