Course feedback

You led the course with a knowledge and enthusiasm that was infectious. Thank you for an excellent course. We look forward to introducing many young people to the world of watersports through SUP!
Longtown Outdoor Centre

Great course, relaxed approach but covering all of the essentials. Having started the day with minimal SUP experience I felt very at ease by the end of the day. Tim was also a good listener.
Lake District Paddleboarding

Recently had a sea skills course with Tim, we had a great day, superb location (Mumbles) challenging but not overwhelming, a great insight into planning a coastal trip with plenty of practical experience. All the equipment provided you just need to turn up with the spirit of adventure and the wish to learn.

I loved the course! It is surprising what you realise you can do. The leadership was/felt so natural. Am aiming to do the Adventure Course next .. funny how life goes..
