How do I upload videos for feedback?

You can upload videos through the facebook group and get feedback from the OSK coaches and community.  Or you can upload and add a link to the video on the comments section of the relevant lesson on the website.

What is the best way to use the website and course?

The Online Sea Kayaking Courses can be completed in many different ways.  You may want to take your time watch a lesson get out on the water practice the exercise on the course, upload a video for feedback and then when you are ready move on to the next lesson on the course. 

You may find it useful to watch all of the lessons over a few evenings then go back to the lessons you feel you need to work on and get out on the water and complete the exercises and get feedback and ask questions through the site.

Another option is to take your mobile devise down to the water and watch a video and then straight away do the exercise.  When you have got that exercise you can watch the next lesson.  While you have your device in a waterproof case get your paddling partner to take a video or two and upload them for feedback.

You may have booked into a course or are taking lessons on the water.  Use these courses and lessons to give you a greater understanding and to prepare you for your course or lesson on the water.

If you are a sea kayak coach there are lots of ideas to use while coaching. These courses and individual lessons break the strokes and techniques down into their key component parts and have lots of useful exercises to help paddlers develop their techniques.

Use the content in a way that suits you best and please ask questions and get feedback from us and the growing OSK community to help you progress.
