Cold Hawaii Sea Kayak Surf Camp in Denmark

Brief out lines of the evnet
This sea kayak surf course is 2,5 days starting with a meet and greet on Thursday followed by practical days on water with head to head coaching Friday and Saturday and Sunday half day as a self-coaching day with feedback from the instructors.
Main goals are confidence and technical skills in the surf always having the safety of the group environmetn as a key principle and each individual in the center of their own experience. The progress of the coaching is self- exploration with direct and in-direct coaching letting the paddler get the understanding and feeling of their own development. We always work in pairs of practical and safety reasons also letting each pair push each other through the progression.
We work primarily of the main beach in the little town of Lokken in north west Denmark. This is one of the “upcoming” surf locations in Denmark and normaly has really good conditions for developing surf at all skill levels. One of the awesome things with this location is that we can drive all the way down on the beach for unloading and loading as well as lunch breaks. The town of Lokken has all luxury you need with small cafes, restaurants. As the holiday village it is there are no problem finding accommodation both in cottages, hostells or holiday parks.
Lokken is situated only 50 minutes from the ferryterminal between Gothenburg and Fredrikshamn from where it runs. It is also about 2 hours drive from the international airport Kastrup outside Copenhagen.
