Summer is here and those of you keen to learn white-water kayaking, head to Manchenahalli near here this weekend where skilled instructors will teach you kayaking skills.

Participants will be introduced to kayaks, basic white water and flat-water kayaking manoeuvres such as kayak entry and re-entry, paddling forwards, backwards and turning in both directions besides the edge control and stability manoeuvres, a press release from Southern River Runners, a group of kayakers, said.

Two experienced kayakers, who are white water rescue specialists, with certified Rescue 3 International, will facilitate the training programme.

All equipment, including kayaks, life jacket, helmet, spray deck and kayak paddle, will be given on rent.

Manchenahalli dam is located near Chickballapur, about 70 km from Bangalore.

Sixteen slots are available over the weekend.
