Those of you who know Ronnie from the Cardiff branch of Canoe and Kayak Store, will know that sense of crushing devastation when you turn up at CIWW and Ronnie is nowhere to be seen. Ronnie is quite simply where the party’s at. Aside from giving superb kit advice, technical help, and providing a great range of demo boats and paddles, Ronnie is one of the most helpful and cheerful people you will meet. If you haven’t yet experienced the full effect of Ronnie Time, get over there and give it a go!
2. Practise Territory
Whether you are an out-and-out playboater, a river runner or someone who likes to dip their toe into both disciplines, the timetabled, reliable and variable flows as CIWW have a lot to offer.
For those who are just starting to venture into the world of whitewater, the 4 cumecs sessions are a great opportunity to practise breaking in and out, ferry gliding, surfing waves and getting stuck in holes!
The 4 cumecs sessions are often followed by 8 cumecs sessions which allow aspiring dare devils to start to push the envelope a little more.
For the seasoned playboater, the features for the 8 and 10 cumecs sessions are changed on a fairly regular basis so that you can practise a range of moves.
