Adventures

Whoosh Explore  has adventure at its Heart.
We started Whoosh Explore as a Canoe Club in 2008  with the advent of having children we wanted to develop a local paddling club that offered families the opportunity to paddle using great boats and equipment thats easy to paddle. We started off with a small fleet of Open canoes and Touring Kayaks and as our family of paddlers has grown, we have introduced more adventurous boats and equipment for developing skill in the sport. We now have a wide range of equipment for delivering adventures in paddlesport from flatwater touring boats to specialist White water Canoes and Stand Up Paddleboards for exploring the river.

Micro adventures
A spirit of adventure has always been at the centre of our paddling, we have canoe and kayak trailers for expeditions away from the club and regularly head off to explore new rivers and paddle challenges including paddling expeditions and whitewater.  

Paddlesport Training and Qualifications
As Whoosh Explore has developed we have been more engaged in offering a wider choice of paddling sessions including pool sessions and have developed trained our keenest club members to help them gain coaching experience and NGB qualifications to help them develop coaching skills.

Specialist events
To develop coaching skills and to try out the latest paddling kit and each spring we head off on expeditions to white water to develop our coaching skills and qualifications to ensure we remain engaged in paddle sport coaching and having fun as a paddling team.
We encourage paddling in the local environment and are passionate about improving the local paddling environment for all to enjoy, this may be removing fishing line from trees or collecting discarded drinks bottles that occasional find there way into the local paddling water- no messages found in any yet!

Trips Abroad
Over the last couple of years our trips have become more adventurous with Whitewater trips for families and friends to France as well as paddling sessions in Wales and Scotland in both Canoes and Kayaks. We run trips and trails to experience different rivers with our 4 trailers of boats and paddling equipment which we tow to the swimming pool on a Saturday afternoons and for regular tours to local paddling spots as paddling is all about having adventures.
Summer 2016 saw us head out to the Central Massiff in France for our kids first French paddling adventure on moving water with paddle trips in open boats and kayaks on the Ardeche, Cheezac and River Orb as well as coastal paddle boarding and beach adventures to discover new paddling venues.
Our autumn sessions included family bush craft training canoe poling and exploring the lakes and rivers near Bala as well as an upstream adventure for our coaching team on the river Dee, where we worked alongside other professional paddle sport coaches.
