The SHAC "Skills In Hills'" MTB Development program, developed to introduce riders to the trails in the Surrey Hills and install core skills that will help you stay safe yet enjoy the fantastic trails we have in the Surrey Hills to there maximum potential. The program uses an 8 point riding development structure that  was developed over a number of years and includes the following elements.

Feet positioning and lower body movement
Energy management
Speed control and gear selection
Climbing / Descending
Transferring skills to single track trail riding
Section identification and observations (Entry/Section/Exit)
Bike and Equipment Safety Check

Please  take a look at our website blog/news page or Our Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheSurreyHIllsAdventureCompany  you will find pictures and feedback from clients that have already started the skills in the hills programme with us. Dont take our word for it please visit: http://www.ibikeride.com/guides-and-coaches/2828-the-surrey-hills-adventure-company-skills-training-and-guiding-in-the-surrey-hills

Within a 2 hour session we make a real difference to a riders abilities, safety and forward progression whether they are a beginner or a more experienced rider. When we are taught to ride a bike we miss out on some fundamental core skills that make a huge difference, we therefore break things right down and then start to rebuild our riders so that the skills we introduce become instinctive and are used every time they ride which will enhance the abilities whilst making them safer while out on the trials. We specialise in working with young riders but also have had great success with adult riders by taking them through the same program, it  is often something that a family choose to do and enjoy together.

More On SUP Yoga

Yoga on water, takes your session to a completely different level, on many levels! Set against the background of chirping frogs and birds and with the swans and their goslings cruising by, feel your heartbeat lower and a smile light up your face, plus by being exposed to the elements and having to adjust to the movement of the board on water, you will maximise your core stability throughout the entire class.
 

Complete beginners through to experienced SUPers and yogis can take part in this. No special clothing is required, although wetsuits and buoyancy aids are available if you prefer.

Sasha is an experienced and qualified BSUPA SUP Instructor, Yoga and Pilates teacher as well as PT (See our SUPFitness classes for more on this!)
