River Running with Attitude! Join our enthusiastic coaches as they help you to combine the thrills and spills of river running with the more exciting elements of freestyle, throwing in a generous helping of boofs 'n' drops along the way.Over these five fast-moving days you'll develop your white water skills, improve your river reading and learn to throw in a few new moves on a wave. But most of all, you'll learn how to do it all in style, blending strokes, moves and tricks together with fluidity and grace, using the whole river. This is a chance to learn how to enjoy running rivers from a completely different perspective and a week that's guaranteed to leave you grinning from ear to ear.
