THE GOODWAVE Adventures SCHOOL OF WHITE WATER KAYAKING

 To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield - Alfred Lord Tennyson

To most people, kayaking is a life changing experience or at the very least an adrenaline-charged adventure.  It's been said that kayaking is one of the few adventure sports out there that truly is for everyone because its not about strength, it's about technique. In the years we've spent Kayaking, we have become South India's first family of river-based adventure, operating on over twenty rivers in India.

In order to promote this challenging adventure sport, we decided to establish a school to teach White Water Kayaking in South India. GoodWave is the first company in South India to attempt such a bold initiative.  Why do we do this ? It's simple - we love to paddle, we love to stretch our boundaries, we enjoy watching new enthusiasts fall in love with the sport, we love to achieve and we love the feeling of being alive!

Goodwave Adventures was born from the kinship we formed over a common cause— to explore,  promote and protect the amazing white water that India has to offer.  Each one of us is genuinely invested in every paddler, every trip and every lifetime memory. When you sign up for a learn to kayak course, you’re not just a customer—you're a friend, a member of the crew and an extension of our team. We’ll answer your questions, make sure your needs at taken care of, show you a good time and share with you our passion for the country’s waterways.

We've done the hard work. When we were beginners, we had to scout out our own ways to train and learn the basics of the sport and deal with with several logistical difficulties. So we now know that we can make it a lot easier for those who choose to follow in our footsteps. GoodWave aims to replicate the best practices of Kayak training schools in the North America and Europe, while also injecting our own local flair. Having benefited from the training methods of the best paddle sport centers in the world,  the team can adopt those practices while addressing local context.  

We endeavor to provide a safe and friendly environment for our students. Kayaking is a sport that requires a lot of mind and body training - similar to other adventure sports such as rock climbing and paragliding. Therefore, safety is a priority. All of our instructors are certified Rescue 3 International White Water Technicians.  Our teaching philosophy involves establishing a solid foundation with skills that are perfected on flat water, gradually exposing our students to progressively higher grades of White Water.  

Some of our instructors are certified American Canoe Association (ACA) level 4 instructors and our course syllabus closely adheres to the guidelines laid down by the ACA. 

We hope you will join us.
