We can totally recommend Ian as a water sports instructor and leader. We had an amazing day sea kayaking. He has everything you need to get the best out of the experience.Sue
Thank you, Vertical Blue.
Ian is a very experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic coach. He checks out what you want to achieve, gives detailed feedback to help you improve and summarises what has been covered.Alison
He always offers clear instructions and demonstrates techniques as he describes them. He is encouraging and builds confidence. He works to your skill and comfort level, while also suggesting further challenges and next steps. He is patient in answering questions and teaches with infectious enthusiasm and humour. He is a skilled coach and ensures you get the most out of his courses, so I would happily recommend him as a teacher.
