“Lowri ran a full day ‘Intro to Playboating’ course for me at the Tryweryn. I can honestly say that I have never been more impressed with both the quality of coaching and the patience she had in teaching me.
The coaching was excellently pitched, with time spent working out what level I was at, and what I needed to do to improve, with clear instruction and feedback given at all times. An excellent confidence booster and a massive improvement in my skills – just what I was after! I definitely have no hesitation in recommending FlowFree to anyone looking for kayak coaching.” – Tom Wardill: Intro to Playboating
“The qualities of the coach are everything on courses and I can’t imagine anyone better than David. He was always enthusiastic, patient and reassuring. It was obvious that he really cared about us and in ensuring that we got the most out of the course. Offering extra advice to us by email even after the course was over was typical of his enthusiasm. He is a real asset to FlowFree.
The course content was ideal. The ‘philosophy of forward paddling’ ran through the whole course and the amount of new ideas / techniques David introduced was just right. So I was never overloaded with knowledge or left thinking I could learn faster. The action plan, which is specific and realistic gives even more benefits.” - Jon Maddocks: WW Improvers
“I want to say a massive thank you to you, for doing some great coaching and for putting up with me! The way you ran the course was spot on and I don’t think either me or Andy could have had more fun or learned any more in the time we were at Lyon. Thanks for everything.” - Jon Soper-Dyer: Intro to Big Wave Surfing
“Just a quick note to say thanks to Jon for helping me to get my confidence back, boofing down those Alpine rivers was great fun. Your enthusiasm for paddling and having fun on the river was infectious and made the learning so much more of an enjoyable experience. Still working on putting all those tips you gave me into practice. Look forward to paddling and further coaching with you in the near future.” – Mark Rowe: Alps 2008
“Lowri took note of what we wanted to achieve, noted our abilities and delivered the course appropriate to our individual needs, a pleasurable day and I’ve come away feeling more confident.” - Carl Wilcock: Intro to Playboating
“I just wanted to say thank you to both Lowri and Jon for the coaching and support you’ve given my 14 year old daughter. We’ve been particularly impressed with not only how you tailored the coaching to her individual learning style (without her being aware of what was going on), but also how you provided such strong role models both on and off the water. I’d especially like to thank both of you for your professionalism, which has been outstanding whenever we’ve dealt with you.
Tahsa’s trip to the Alps with FlowFree was a life changing event, her paddling confidence has soared and she came back a confident and self-reliant young woman. Thanks again. ” - Peter Isaacs
