White Water Weekend
Best weekend on the river yet, You got me feeling much more in control, I made the kayak go where I wanted it to go. I felt like I improved a lot but also know where my weaknesses are and what to work on and practise to improve them. And Dan, you light up my world like nobody else....
Just came back from a weekend of whitewater grade 2 instruction with Dan. After having already done a few courses with him, I knew what I was letting myself in for, and couldn’t wait! He is passionate about kayaking, loves helping people improve but not only that, also wants them to know what they want to improve and how to do it, What they do wrong when things don’t go as planned and what they do well, this makes you think about your own paddling in a self critical way, which is something we all need to do to improve. He does this in such a positive way and will always help you in any way he can. He breaks it down in to small chunks and is just a pleasure to be around, his knowledge of the river, the strokes, safety and instruction are inspirational and this fuels my desire to be the best paddler I can, I think it may take some time to have half Dans ability, but I enjoy every minute spent on a river strokes course and never stop learning and smiling with Dans unique style. Wait til you learn all about the ‘puppy’ stroke!! To be a balanced review I think I should point out one negative, his singing is terrible!!! If your thinking of booking with Dan then just do it, you won’t regret it, you will love every minute.
