Possible slalom sites near bournemouth

Post by Angus gibson »

Hi all,

looking to put up some gates and do some slalom around bournemouth. looking for play spots or rapids that might work! anyone have any ideas??

also if I do get help putting gates up then I am happy to do some coaching. I was British team for 4 years and I'm keen to give kids the same opportunity to try slalom as I had!

Cheers,

Angus Gibson

Hi Angus,

Is Salisbury too far away for you?

Cheers

Hi Angus
PHCC would be interested - suggested sites - Canford Weir (Canford Magna Mr Wimborne) (2 inflows ..slice and weir) Iford Weir -(Between Hurn & Chrustchurch ) flow varies with tide . Highest tidal point in the Stour). Longham - lots of flows.

Lots of other places with milder flows.

Contact anyone from the website.

Not many in the club at the mo involved in Slalom but potentially more. Usually 8 or so keen at the mo.
