Nottingham, UK

Jacko Jackson & Guests

12 - 18 years

London Heathrow (LHR) or East Midlands (EMA)

Camping at HPP Campsite

Hole Freestyle

10 spots

One more summer, on more camp in Nottingham. The HPP course is just conveniently central for paddlers from all over the UK, the set up on the local campsite is hard to beat and the variety of high quality spots to paddle unmatched anywhere in Europe. In short; Nottingham is GREAT!

There isn’t a better introduction to the Burners and EWWS philosophy than signing up for this freestyle camp lead by the soul behind the Burners Program, Jacko Jackson. The week will pack many surprises from guest coaches, side activities and of course copious amounts of paddling. But be ready, as the days do not start and finish by the course! Morning yoga sessions, performance workshops, video analysis and work outs both for your brain and body that will keep you busy. There will be, however, just enough time to socialise with the rest of the paddlers, play boardgames at the camp or maybe organise an ultimate frisbee match.

FLY IN/OUT & PICK UPS -We are currently looking at flight logistics and will update you with the relevant information once we have all details sorted.

DROP OFF – Same as above.

GAME PLAN

Day 1 – Familiarisation with the course and features; a day to get to know the Nottingham Whitewater Course in case you have never been there before. We will make the best use of all features in the course, looking for all the learning possibilities that are on offer.

Day 2 – Understanding the features. Today we will spend a good deal of time on a specific feature. We will run a workshop to analyse the feature, identifying which are the sweet spots for each of the tricks, finding out the best ways to achieve good set ups and working out the the generals of the feature.

Day 3 – Expanding my trick range. Today we will focus the attention on those tricks that are “work in progress”. We will work analytically, breaking down the trick in various phases and we will measure success not by counting how many times we can land the trick, but how much progress we make in each of the phases of the trick.

Day 4 – About amplitude and style. Style is a slippery topic and we will intend to put light into what it means and how we can improve our style.

Day 5 – Links and Combos. A day to go full send. Stop overthinking stuff, just throw whatever feels right. A day to enhance our creativity and fluidity on the feature.

Day 6 – Tactics and the Mental Game. Here we will discuss some techniques to keep you chill and composed before the competition. Expect competitive exercises where the goal will be to put you under pressure both individually and in teams.

Day 7 – The Competition Day. No best way to finish off the week and to evaluate your progress that putting you into test.

I JUST LEARNT TO SPIN, CAN I JOIN?​

We do not look for world-class paddlers (hopefully we will help you become one). We look for motivated, passionate and open-minded individuals ready to commit to a full-on week that will transform your paddling and develop your thinking! A solid roll and basic freestyle skills make you a potential Burner! It is your mindset that counts. Expect to be pushed hard.

WHAT SORT OF STUFF DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME?​

Your own tent, sleeping bag, documents (ID, passport…), some pocket money, your favorite board game, a book, an open mind, lots of motivation… oh, and your kayaking gear might be useful too 😉

MY ENGLISH IS NOT THAT GOOD… IS THIS OK?​

Can you think of any better opportunity to study English without even noticing it? Sessions will be run in English but in case you don’t understand or you have any questions, our coaches do speak French, Spanish and Catalan. Other paddlers may be able to help you as well. Don’t worry, we will find the way to understand each other and your English will improve by the day! I mean we even learnt to communicate with Nanase, and that’s quite the feat.

I AM UNDER 16 AND TRAVELLING ALONE. WHAT COMPANIES ALLOW U16s TO FLY IN THEIR OWN?​

Ryanair – This company does not allow unaccompanied minors under 16 years to travel. U16s can travel only in case there is a responsible adult over 16 years of age.

Easyjet – This company does not allow unaccompanied minors under 15 years to travel.

Eurowings – This company allows minors as young as 12 years old to travel unaccompanied. Children between 5 and 11 can also fly if they are accompanied by a sibling over 16 years of age. The company also offers an unaccompanied minors service at an extra charge for passengers younger than 12 years of age. DIRECT FLIGHTS ONLY!

Norwegian – Maybe the best company out there to fly if you are an unaccompanied minor as they accept ages ranging from 5 – 15. From 5 – 11 you will need to contract the Unaccompanied Minor Service. This service is available but only optional from 12-15 and once your 16 you’ll be considered an adult.

Vueling – This company allows minors as young as 12 years old to travel unaccompanied. Exception – Italian kids must be at least 14 to be able to travel alone.

Lufthansa – This company allows minors as young as 12 years old to travel unaccompanied. Children between 5 and 11 can also fly if they are accompanied by a sibling over 16 years of age. The company also offers an unaccompanied minors service at an extra charge for passengers younger than 12 years of age, although it is also possible to book for up to 17yo. DIRECT FLIGHTS ONLY!

Aer Lingus – This company allows minors as young as 12 years old to travel unaccompanied. DIRECT FLIGHTS ONLY!

Wizz Air – This company does not allow unaccompanied minors under 16 years to travel. U16s can travel only in case there is a responsible adult over 16 years of age.

REMEMBER: Some countries have specific requirements for any children under 18 years who wish to travel into, out of or within their country. You must contact the country’s embassy website or national authorities for more information before you make your booking, and commence travel as these requirements can vary depending on the country, and can change regularly.

HOW DO I BOOK MY KAYAK ONTO MY FLIGHT?​

It is generally easy to book your freestyle boat onto most airline companies. However, some companies have length limitations that would exclude most creekboats. It is important to read the sport baggage policies of the companies you are considering to fly with before booking your ticket. Here is a quick breakdown of the fares of various popular airlines:

Ryanair – 35€ for the regular Sports Equipment, 55€ for a Large Sports Item. It is possible to check in up to 2 Large Sport Items per person per flight. The maximum weight allowed is 20kg, but you might be allowed to fly paying an additional fee of 11€/kg up to 32kg. In general quite a friendly company for both freestyle and creekboats.

EasyJet – The fee is 55€ and only one item per passenger is allowed. You can check in your kayak without problems as kayaks are amongst the items that are allowed on the airline’s sports baggage policy. Up to 32kgs. Friendly for both freestyle and creekboats.

Eurowings – Up to 32kg allowed, it has a cost of 50€. Generally a friendly company for both freestyle and creekboats.

Norwegian Airlines – Max dimensions stated on website are 250cmx79cmx112cm. This is more than enough for any freestyle boat and borderline for most modern creekboats. Likely that they would not care about 20cm extra as width and height of the kayaks are much less than their max allowance. 32kg max. weight allowance makes it a good company to chuck your kayaking gear inside your kayak :).
Cost is very reasonable at 30GBP (if booked online) or 50GBP directly at the counter. 

Vueling – Kayaks are not on the allowed item list, but surfboards are. You will most likely not have any problems convincing the employees your kayak is actually a paddleboard. The weight limit is 32kg and the maximum length 270cm, which is good for all freestyle boats and many creekboats. The cost is 45€.

Lufthansa – Kayaks are not on the allowed item list, but surfboards are. You will most likely not have any problems convincing the employees your kayak is actually a paddleboard. The maximum length allowed is 3,15m and the maximum weight is 32kg so this is a creekboat-friendly company. The cost is quite elevated, at 70 – 150€ depending if it’s a domestic flight or an international flight.

Aer Lingus – Kayaks are not on the allowed item list, but surfboards are. You will most likely not have any problems convincing the employees your kayak is actually a paddleboard. The maximum weight allowed is 23kg and maximum length is 240cm, so freestyle boats are a go, but it is not a friendly company for creekboats. The cost is 40€.

Wizz Air – Kayaks are not on the allowed item list, but surfboards are. You will most likely not have any problems convincing the employees your kayak is actually a paddleboard. A slightly odd company as the price depends on the season and it’s higher during the summer months and lower during the winter. Not the most kayak friendly company so better to be avoided if you travel with your boat.

We highly recommend that you book your sports equipment in advance to avoid higher fees in the airport check in, or even worse, finding out that the flight is full and not being allowed to bring your kayak with you on board.

Also, packing your kayak nicely in a bag or using a “sock” for surfboards will maximise the chances that everything goes smoothly and that you don’t have any problems.
