Each summer we hold at least one weekend skills training courses in an exposed part of the Swedish Stockholm archipelago where we hope to find waves. Friday evening the group paddles out to camp on an island close to the action. Over the weekend, Nigel and Kristin first coach paddling skills for directional control in sheltered water to build precision and confidence, then move from straightforward rock-hopping situations into progressively more complex wave conditions around the rocks and in the many narrow channels. Roland (standing top left in the group photo) coordinates these courses in Sweden. If you are interested in joining a weekend course (running Friday evening to Sunday evening) or a week-long course in the coming summer, please e-mail him using the form on the home-page.
