"Over the years, through the many different ways we have accessed the ocean, open water and rivers we have learnt our trade from many different sources and sharing this knowledge is one of our goals.

We have selected a fantastic trainer team specialising in their chosen disciplines and all with the same aim – a love of their sport and industry and a passion to educate and develop those wishing to enter the outdoor industry market".
