The progressive nature of the course ticked all the boxes I was looking for with combinations of new lines, challenges and good old fashioned fun all delivered by great coaching. By the end of the week I had a clear understanding of a running theme to take away and work on. Now to get on it and apply with my new boat.     Emma Foxley - 5* 

It was an awesome experience and one I would recommend to others who are stuck in their paddling progression and want to progress further. Jamie is a patient and detailed instructor and it is easy to see that he is extremely passionate about the sport.  Morten Chen - 5*
