Many thanks to Josh and the Rapid Skills Team for organising and delivering such a comprehensive and fun WWSR course over 2 days. Everyone enjoyed the course which was thorough and professional. The participants’ pleasure was evident on their faces!


Thanks Josh for a fantastic first time paddle on the Dart Loop with Mairin, Oisín and Lucía. The three of them are now soaring with confidence after a brilliant day of fun getting expertly coached by you.


Professional, friendly and full of positive encouragement. I have done an FSRT course and had some one-to-one rolling tuition with Josh and he is fantastic! I’d been trying to roll on and off for over a year with little success and feeling quite frustrated ... Josh had me rolling with 15 mins!


Had a briliant time doing a Canoe Leader Training with Rapid Skills in Bala/Llangollen! Josh clearly takes in interest in his students and ensures they leave his courses without any unaswered questions and with a clear idea of what to practice before assessment. Very professional and well executed course!


Fun, good experience and good company. Learnt lots with plenty of well planned safe opportunities to try things out.
