This is the second level of sea kayaking in the Norwegian Paddling Foundation course ladder. In this 16 hour course you will expand your grasp of basic and intermediate techniques, kayak safety, be introduced to rougher water and touch on towing techniques. Of course, different rescuing techniques are also drilled. We do recommend that you have taken the basic course before embarking on the technique course. The technique course is held out at Sommarøya and overnighting in tents is part of the experience.
