Palm & Pyranha Paddlesports Session, Saturday 17th November 11.30 a.m to 1.30 p.m. Keswick Leisure Centre

This looks like it could be a real gem! They are re-vamping Paddlesports at Kendal with the best line-up ever so definitely one not to miss!
A stellar cast gathers together in the largest venue for this all new Specialist Session at Kendal. Whitewater, flat water, big drops, sea crossings and wave riding – whatever floats your paddle boat, we have a story for you this year at Kendal!

Guest presenters for this incredible session will be top expedition sea kayaker, Erin Bastian and former pro Kayaker, river-runner, raft guide and top swimmer – Colin Hill.

From the world of Playboating (Freestyle Kayaking), huge river expeditions, big fall drops and competition kayaking we're delighted to welcome three of the world's top kayakers today – Bren Orton, Dane Jackson and Nouria Newman. Get ready to see some incredible footage that will leave you astounded at their accomplishments and we're sure will be the talk of the Fest.

Joining us on-stage are two of the world's greatest adventurers and top paddlers in their own right - Sarah McNair-Landry & Erik Boomer. Former Nat Geo Adventurers of the year they join us to talk about their latest expeditions including their award-winning film last year - 'Into Twin Galaxies' across Greenland.

Taking us across seas and around the coastline of our home island will be our co-host Erin Bastian, from the world of sea-kayaking and record breaker Colin Skeath will share his adventures of his record breaking open canoe circumnavigation of Britain last year.

Finally, we can't ignore the important plight of many environmental activists today who fight for a pollution free environment we all love. Paddlesports activists definitely lead the way on this front and we'll share successes with four inspirational people – Kayakers Rok Rozman and Carmen Kuntz (Balkans River defence) and Dan Yates (Save Our Rivers / The Free Rivers Fund) and Stand Up Paddleboarder – Cal Major (Paddle Against Plastic).

Presented by Palm Equipment and Pyranha Kayaks and supported by Dewerstone clothing and British Canoeing.


Tickets are £15 from the Kendal Mountain Festival website.
