“..Many thanks for organising such an excellent weekend with the Ready To Race course. Will Anido was excellent and we have come away full of ideas and information that we can apply straight away into our ASI SUP school, club and personal paddling. The video analysis was especially good and really is the USP of the course.  We have the 10 mile Battle of The Thames on Saturday so plenty of opportunity to put everything we have learnt into practice.
Please pass on our thanks again to Will for being such a motivational instructor and answering all questions with a wealth of knowledge. We will certainly be promoting the course and would love to host another when required.  ….” Jon Smith Suffolk SUP, UK
