The 2019 “Whitewater SUP Instructors Meet, Greet and Paddle” will be taking place just after the European Paddle Expo on Sunday the 13.10.2019 & Monday the 14.10.2019. The goal is to meet one another and openly share information so as to improve the quality of our instruction in the sport and its safety standards as a whole.
An agenda will be provided to registered participants several days before the event. The 2019 venue will be the Vorderrhein. This event is intended solely for qualified WhiteWater SUP Instructors. For further details please see the required qualifications section.
In general we would ask the participates to openly share the following information:
- Whitewater Paddle Techniques (eg. stances)
- Whitewater Rescue Techniques (eg. gorge rescue)
- Whitewater SUP Safety Standards (eg. leash & gear usage)
We are aware that several of these topics can generate extensive discussions. These discussion should be led by the event organizer and we ask that the participants respect any discussion limitations imposed by the organizer.
We also ask that each participant come to the event with an open mind and not with the intention of convincing others, but rather more so with that of understanding others and openly sharing information. Only with such an open approach will participants be able to benefit from the experiences and knowledge of others.
