Next Symposium

The Mid West Sea Kayak Symposium is taking a wee break in 2017 - giving everyone a chance to practise their ceilidh dancing before the next Symposium! We hope to see you back at the Symposium in 2018.

In the meantime, happy paddling and we look forward to seeing you at Kari-Tek to help you find your perfect kayaking gear.

Hurry - only a few places remaining!

Karitek are proud to announce the 2012 Mid West Sea Kayak Symposium: a symposium with a difference! In a fantastic setting on the Argyll coast, our symposium has a real focus on providing quality coaching sessions in the right conditions for learning. With one coach to every six participants and a maximum of 60 participants, you'll have a much more personal experience than at other symposiums. Our aim is for you to thoroughly enjoy the weekend and to come away with a new or much improved set of skills.

The Mid West Sea Kayak Symposium will be held at Tayvallich, Argyll, Scotland from Saturday 5th May to Monday 7th May 2012 and has two distinct programmes:

  • Beginners Programme - up to 12 places are available on our three day programme tailored for the complete beginner. If you've always wanted to get into sea kayaking, this is the perfect opportunity to see what it's all about and receive an incredible amount of skills. The Beginner package includes the hire of a sea kayak, buoyancy aid, paddle and spray deck for the duration of the Symposium.

  • Novices and Improvers Programme - with a wide choice of practical sessions over the 3 days, this is the chance to improve your paddling technique or tackle a new aspect of boat handling. With expert input from our coaches, you'll increase your skill level and confidence.
