Thank you from doMore

I'd like to thank you for being involved in the doMore.com.au community and the team and I hope that you've received value from being a part of it.

doMore was our original passion project born out of the desire to help connect people wanting to learn something new with experts that could teach them over 10 years ago.

Over the years we have helped almost 70,000 learners connect with one of over 1,500 courses and providers, across the country. For that, we're very proud and grateful for your contribution.

doMore.com.au also served to teach us about how to help measure and improve business performance and inspired the launch and growth of two other companies as a result, one of which we've decided to dedicate our resources and energy to making great.

We'll be switching the site off on Tuesday 31st of July. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us directly on [email protected].

Thanks again and good luck with your teaching endeavours in the future.

Warm regards,

The doMore team.

6 Reasons to Enrol

1. Fun, fun, fun. Good skills means you can have more fun on the water.
2. Become a better paddler faster! Good instruction means you can gain skills in 2 days that would take a lot longer to gain on your own.
3. Increase your confidence with the ability to competently perform basic sea kayaking rescues.
4. Start with good habits and avoid having to get rid of bad habits later on.
5. Learning to paddle within a group is a supportive and fun environment in which to learn.
6. Some stuff is just to hard to learn from books- we believe in “learning by doing”.

Challenging, Exciting and Fun

Feedback from hundreds of clients who have participated on the course has helped us design a sequentially orientated program that meets the expectations of our clients and delivers positive outcomes.

Courses are often described as challenging, exciting and heaps of fun! Experienced paddlers are often the ones that gain the most from refining and revising their current skills. Most importantly, inexperienced paddlers will leave with a completely new skill set that will launch them into one of the fastest growing sports in the world - Sea kayaking.
