Whitewater Instruction

Paddle Patagonia’s whitewater instructors have many years of experience paddling and teaching.  The focus of our courses are first and foremost to establish good paddling techniques.  We believe that a strong technical base is the key to healthy progression and confidence in the unique sport of whitewater paddling. Likewise if you come to us as an established paddler we will also take the time to review your paddling technique and work to improve anything that might be impeding your success.

Paddle Patagonia’s main instructor is owner Julian Tisato who has trained under many prolific paddlers and instructors. Julian is a certified Whitewater Rescue Technician Instructor through Boreal River Rescue as well as an Advanced Whitewater Canoe and Advanced Whitewater Kayak Instructor certified by Paddle Canada and the CKC (Canoe Kayak Canada) coaching program.  Aside from the Paddle Patagonia and Boreal River courses in South America, Julian also occasionally instructs for the Madawaska Kanu Centre in Canada.
