Taster Session content

Taster sessions contain an introduction to paddling along with working on your team work skills. These are put the test with races and games.

Evening or part of a multi-activity day. 

We have five katakanus, each seating 6 paddlers.

Katakanuing works well combined with dragon boating or wobbleboarding.
