Easter & Summer Hpp Freestyle Camps


Come join me this Easter & Summer to get those Cartwheels flowing & Phonic’s snapping…

I love freestyle and it’s a real pleasure passing on the skills i’ve learnt.  Join me on the water for my 5 days camps at Holme Pierrepont this Easter or Summer and I’ll help you  boost your skills and give you the tools to teach yourself more effectively.

Freestyle Camps at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham – 5 Days – £250

2013 Dates:

  • Easter Freestyle Camp – 8th to 12th April
  • Summer Camp – 30th July to 3rd August

To book email me at Pringalingding@gmail.com 


My 5 day camps are limited to 4 people maximum. Water fees & camping fees are not included in the course fee. You must have a solid roll & be competent on grade 3 whitewater.

I aim to help you get the best from your paddling with maximum enjoyment along the way.

I will be on the water paddling with you at least one session of every day & filming the other one.


All camps are tailored to the individuals needs. For most paddlers this will involve teaching you 2 or 3 new moves, improving the consistency of ones you can already do & helping you put together competition rides and put them into action in our two mini comps.

Off the water i’ll also teach you how to warm up properly, how to train to your potential, how to learn moves on your own, how to use video to help your progression and will talk in-depth about mental preparation, visualisation, competition preparation and how to get the most from your play sessions.

All participants will get daily verbal feedback and video review along with an overall  written feedback summary/ action plan at the end of the camp.

All video footage taken can be copied and taken away also provided you bring a hard drive to copy it onto.


Sample Camp Plan

First Day Note: Meet up at 10am in front of Slalom Reception and discuss what we all hope to learn/ get out of the week.

Day One & Two: Introduce warm up, see where we’re at and begin moves work. 2 sessions on the water with a break for lunch. Video Review at the end of the day and daily feedback session.

Individually at the end we’ll talk over my feedback for the whole camp, discussing everything covered & where to go next to continue progressing. This will also be emailed out to you as a written review & action plan.
