Here at Gene17, we are passionate about white water kayaking. From the lush forests and smooth granite valleys of Northern Italy, to the crystal clear blue waters of Slovenia’s Soča, to the sheer spectacle of Norway’s fjords or the Himalayas in Nepal, a kayak can take you to places inaccessible by all other means of transport, and show you the world from a unique perspective.
Our knowledge of the rivers and locations we use is second to none, and our unusually low paddler to coach ratio (never more than 3:1) allows for a huge amount of one to one teaching and individual feedback. Our depth of experience across all of our staff in white water kayaking is considerable, along with our understanding of paddling technique and river running tactics. Take a look at our published articles, instructional DVD’s & kayaking books to see our commitment to paddling excellence.
We’ve been at the front line of paddling development for years, we’re out exploring with some of the world’s foremost paddlers and we’re bringing back the best of the modern dynamic style to benefit all. Our goal is simple; to really improve your paddling, to make your time on the water safer, better and more fun.
