Etive beginner trip

Post by callum s » Sun Mar 01, 2015 12:35 pm

In my eyes the Etive at low water is one of the best introductory kayaking trips in the UK.

Its like a beautiful natural water play park. Getting 40 people, half of whom have sat in a boat only a few hours, down this river keeps your trip leaders and rescuers sharp while being exciting/hilarious for everyone. An EUCC Etive beginner trip is one of my favourite days out for sure!

And that is why you should come to Edinburgh University.

This made me smile more than any paddling video in a long time!

Totally agree - a vid that deserves to win every prize going.

Not only did it make me smile, but (unusually for a kayaking video) lots of people on the water were laughing and smiling too.

What month of the year was this, when is the river actually that low?

Great video
