2018/07/17 Families Eric

They booked me a spot I wasn't able to book directly through the company; and at a cheaper pricer!!

Group lesson

2018/04/08 Families with Young Children Lvklysnatour

The kids had fun. However, next day they wanted to try on their own and could not time the waves. I would add a focus on teaching the kids when to start peddling. But average it was good for the first timers.
