We produce kayaking skills training DVDs and offer kayak skills coaching courses, mainly in North Wales but also the rest of the UK and overseas.
Kayak Essentials is the creation of Nick Cunliffe and Matt Giblin -
a coaching partnership with the simple aim of providing high-quality tuition, learning resources and expertise, to help our clients achieve their paddling goals and dreams.
We specialise in sea and inland kayak coaching courses for paddlers seeking a personal, dedicated approach to their development. If you’re looking for skills training, expedition preparation or any BCU qualification course, we can probably deliver a programme to meet your aims. Combined we have over 30 years coaching experience in a variety of paddle sport disciplines.
In addition to personal skills training courses, we also provide BCU coach education courses and a range of other coaching services.
