Just wanted to say a BIG thank you Skip for our training session today using the SUP paddle boards for our first time and feel compelled to leave a review, so here goes!
We met at a picturesque river spot slightly north of Bramley and greeted by Skip along with a good old fashioned hot cup of coffee or tea if you wanted.
We assisted Scott where we could with setting up the Boards, paddles etc, and then we were given a brief explanation about getting onto the water and obviously onto the boards along with the general etiquette rules of the river.
Skip soon had us both on the boards and standing almost immediately which was a fantastic feeling.
It wasn’t too long before we had our first wobble and ended up in the water which actually was a tad warmer than I had expected for the time of year!
All part of the learning process I guess, however dignity in shape we were quickly advised how to get back onto the board safely, and once more we were back standing and paddling, although very wet, but absolutely laughing our socks off!
We booked a two hour session with SHAC and the time just flew.
The lesson comprised of the correct way and style to paddle along with nose and tail control, turning and spinning accordingly, and then soon we found our selves back to where we had started, albeit paddling more efficiently and with so much more control than only an hour before!
I can not emphasize enough how calm, patient and experienced Scott is as a tutor and no doubt as a person and certainly would not hesitate to recommend him or his company.
We will be re booking for future lessons, ready to progress onto the sea.
Thanks again for an excellent, funny and enjoyable morning Skip, you are a star!
