Adults and kids kayak lessons
A surfski is practically a sit-on-top kayak that was originally developed as a surf rescue craft. If flooded with water the boat is able to drain itself, and it is easy to remount after a capsize. Kayaking and surfski paddling differ from canoe paddling as the latter uses a single bladed paddle. Surfski, sometimes called “Ocean Ski” has evolved into a fast growing international sport. The boats come in a variety of sizes and types, depending on their intended use. The boat sits low in the water and usually accommodates a single paddler, but tandem kayaks or skis hold two people and some boats hold three or four people.
Learn to paddle with the right technique, posture and use the right muscle groups to gain the confidence and experience you need to paddle on your own, all with the help of our experienced trainers. From complete beginners to the first steps in skiing, our trainers will walk you through the steps needed to become a good rower, avoid injuries, and give you the tools you need to achieve your rowing goals, whether it’s just a good time or participation in a smaller or larger competition. After mastering the basics, join our paddling teams, discover the beauties of Dubai and gain more experience while honing your skills.
We use craft designed specifically for children from the age of 4 years old. Children use one of the “shark”, “crocodile” or “eagle” surfskis for a fun and light-hearted session. In each case, we choose a boat that suits the age and abilities of the child. Fun and water safety are the primary goals while kids learn the basics of kayaking/surfski paddling. Kids always leave these classes excited and craving more.
