Brisbane instructors

Howdy guys.

So a recent thread on another forum has kicked my butt into action, so I’m on the prowl for an instructor.

So if anyone has any recommendations I’m all ears.

Preferably on the north side, but I’m willing to travel. :D

Cheers
Ethan

Hi Ethan

Gary Forest is located up on the Sunny Coast
ttp://www.queenslandseakayakinstruction ... index.html

Another good way of upskilling is to join a club, here is a couple that I belong to

Sandgate Canoe Club http://www.sandgate.canoe.org.au/


Both good, enjoy the journey

Phew fast reply Grey Raider.

I’ll keep Gary Forest in mind (beautiful waterways up that way). But I was actually hoping for someone a little closer to the north side.

I was looking at joining the Newport Canoe Club.

But the Sandgate Canoe club could be another option. I heard some great things about you guys.

Might see you out in the bay one day. :D

On the weekend I found myself capsized for the very first time ever, upside down in a strong outgoing tide towards approx. 2m surf. Anyway utube kicked in and I decided to pop the neoprene, exit and drain excess water; but when jumping back in from the back, my 100 kg depressed the deck and even though the deck popped up again (no damage) I have come to the conclusion I need to be able to "reenter and roll". Is Gary Forest still the best option? I see he is on http://queenslandseakayakinstruction.com.au/. Any other good options near Brisbane? :?:

Go to https://education.canoe.org.au/find.php and look for Sea Instructors who are available for work in Queensland. I can vouch for all of them but Antony Jenkins, only because I don't know him. Disclaimer; I'm on the list!
Cheers, Mark
