What you'll do

We will meet at a finishing point that will be determined by your skill level and the conditions on the day. From there we'll take a short shuttle ride to the start. Along the way I will point out our route and impart some knowledge about what to expect on the water. Once at our launch point, I will give you a safety briefing and an introduction to downwinding. This will cover reading bumps, paddle technique, and foot placement. Depending on your skill level we will do a downwind run of between two and six miles on the infamous Millers Downwind. Beginner routes are Seaforth Beach to Simons Town, or Windmill Beach to Glen Cairn. Intermediate routes are Windmill Beach to Glen Cairn, or Millers Point to Glen Cairn. The Advanced route is from Millers Point to Fish Hoek.
