Our Team

Paddle WA is lucky enough to have some of the states most talented and friendly kayakers instructing our Paddle Academy sessions. These instructors all hold the PAQS Flatwater Instructor qualification and are able to teach paddling in both kayaks and canoes. All instructors hold Working With Children Cards, and we do regular checks to make sure they are all valid and current. Some of the instructors that will run your sessions have competed in national-level competitions, with some even having represented Australia at international kayaking competitions! Ask your instructors more about their paddling history and get inspired to pursue paddling further!
