Hi JP, great to see skills awards coming for surf kayak. Just wondering does that mean there will a surf kayak instructor to follow? or who will be awarding it?

Good question Richard.

For the initial roll out it is envisioned to create a panel of suitably qualified people. Eventually it would be great to have a stand alone surf instructor scheme but we are talking years down the line! Initially we will be piloting the Level 3 Paddlesurf Skills and move onto the Level 4 and 5 in time.

Criteria for panel membership and dates for workshops for the same will be announced shortly.

So was it all passed at the AGM?
Was hoping to get to it but got a chance to log hours.
