An excellent and action packed full day of water sport activities for the 8 young people involved. It was something none of our young people had tried before and unfortunately although there were many young people interested in attending the session we were restricted by group numbers for health and safety reasons.
Everyone was kitted out with helmets and life jackets, then given a dry learning curve on the correct methods used in kayaking before then entering the water, where they developed skills in oaring, balance and moving. The afternoon session, revolved around learning how to surf from lying down and slowly kneeling, to actually trying to stand up on the board following the waves, which some of our YP were able to perform. The whole day was a fantastic way to increase confidence, develop knowledge, skills and team building for every one participating.
