The course is often divided up over two days. We normally start on a Saturdays at one p.m and finish sometime Sunday afternoon. In the high season we also have Eliteclasses during the weekdays.
We started Elite when we received some feedback from our shorter lesson that was saying: “It was so much fun but it was sad it ended when it was as most fun”
The one day lesson we offer is very intensive with a lot of information. Since there is no time to rehearse everything you learned during this day we decided to start the Elite where the student get time to take in al the information in a longer time period and have the possibility to rehearse al the theoretical and practical information with an experienced instructor by your side. This way you will get an better understanding of the sport and the power you are dealing with. This creates a better feeling of safety when you are going out by your self.
