We'd like to invite you on a surfski adventure filled with sun, sand, waves, spectacular coastlines, and one of Australia's coolest ocean races!

Next Level Kayaking is heading to the Big Island to offer both Tasmanian and mainland paddlers the opportunity to explore Victoria's Surf Coast! Our 2020 Great Ocean Paddle Getaway is all about breaking down the barriers that paddlers face when tackling a new or challenging event, or any unfamiliar section of water. We know these challenges all to well through a lifetime of travelling and paddlesport competition away from our island home of Tasmania. This has included paddling on the Victorian Surf Coast between 2001 and 2006, and trips to the Great Ocean Paddle in 2018 and 2019 for coaching and competition. During this Paddling Getaway you will be introduced step by step to the key sections of the Great Ocean Paddle course, gaining experience and confidence to take part in the event on the final day. You'll also learn some valuable off-water techniques to accelerate your familiarisation with the water and save you physical and mental energy in the lead-up to the race. Our support for Great Ocean Paddle Getaway participants will be holistic and extend all the way through to race day, with plenty of coaching sessions, stretching and injury prevention, course review and discussion, and assistance with start/finish logistics. Every day will feel like a holiday with our self-contained accommodation positioned away from the course at nearby Barwon Heads, giving us some breathing space and access to the Barwon estuary/rivermouth for some of the key Getaway coaching sessions. Our Great Ocean Paddle Getaway is suitable for paddlers from advanced beginner/early intermediate level all the way through to experienced competitor level.

We have a limited number of places available for this trip. For reservations and more information please check out this link or contact us.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
