Learn to Kayak with Goodwave AdventuresManik Taneja
In order to promote this challenging adventure sport, we decided to establish a school to teach White Water Kayaking in South India. GoodWave Advenures is the first company in South India to attempt such a bold initiative. Why do we do this ? It’s simple – we love to paddle, we love to stretch our boundaries, we enjoy watching new enthusiasts fall in love with the sport, we love to achieve and we love the feeling of being alive!
We’ve done the hard work. When we were beginners, we had to scout out our own ways to train and learn the basics of the sport and deal with with several logistical difficulties. So we now know that we can make it a lot easier for those who choose to follow in our footsteps. GoodWave aims to replicate the best practices of Kayak training schools in the North America and Europe, while also injecting our own local flair. Having benefited from the training methods of the best paddle sport centers in the world, the team can adopt those practices while addressing local context.
We endeavor to provide a safe and friendly environment for our students. Kayaking is a sport that requires a lot of mind and body training – similar to other adventure sports such as rock climbing and paragliding. Therefore, safety is a priority. All of our instructors are certified Rescue 3 International White Water Technicians. Our teaching philosophy involves establishing a solid foundation with skills that are perfected on flat water, gradually exposing our students to progressively higher grades of White Water.
Some of our instructors are certified American Canoe Association (ACA) level 4 instructors and our course syllabus closely adheres to the guidelines laid down by the ACA.
We offer a range of courses from basic beginner programs to advanced multi-day river running sessions.
Our courses are designed from the ground-up to enable you with a rock-solid foundation and get you going on the river quickly. We are also happy to offer custom courses and private instruction upon request.
