we coach the future of whitewater kayaking

This is where the future freestyle champions and whitewater legends are forged. We like to think of the EWWS as a hub for young and passionate paddlers where anyone bringing the passion and curiosity to learn is welcome. We love creativity and looking at things from a lot of different perspectives. Very often, the friendships you will build during the camps will transcend the individual trips of the EWWS. By joining the EWWS you will immerse yourself in an inspiring and thriving environment that will allow you to progress at a rate you had never imagined possible.

who are we?

THE EWWS IS A SHARED PROJECT BETWEEN 2 OF the most SUCCESSFUL COACHES IN EUROPE.

After years of collaborating in each others local programs, former Freestyle World Champion Quim Fontané and World Class coach Jacko Jackson joined their expertise to create the first international kayak school in Europe; the European Whitewater School (EWWS).

It is no longer about developing the local scene in their respective hometowns or countries. This is about creating a truly international and open kayak school that combines both freestyle and whitewater, whilst spreading the love for kayaking across the old continent and beyond. 

This is what we believe in

EWWS VALUES

Excellence

We are proud of our approach to excellence. We teach and inspire our paddlers to excel on and off the water. Then, we give them the right tools to transfer excellence to other areas of their lives; studies, relationships, work...

Diversity

The EWWS is born with the mission to share our love for kayaking with paddlers from all over Europe. We love uniqueness and believe in individuals. The variety of backgrounds, languages, cultures and ideas the EWWS brings together create the perfect environment for personal growth.

Passion

There is a special spark in the eyes of the people involved in the EWWS. You can see it in the way we paddle, in the way we act, in the way we speak. We are naturally curious and always innovative. Passion is our fuel to take the sport to new dimensions.
