Thank YOU Nikki - Caroline and I had good fun and sure learned lots from your course. We especially enjoyed how active it was and how we were able to get right in a teach a segment. Great “hands on” made us appreciate how it is for the leaders too. So happy to see SUP fitness etc offered locally. Hope to take some more in soon, - Beth, West Vancouver
