ISA Course Presenter Andy Joyce said:

“These courses were a wonderful opportunity for us all to learn more! For the Slovenian instructors it was new material about surfing, rescue, and first aid, and for myself it was the experience of an amazing country, culture and people!”

In addition to running the ISA Courses, Andy Joyce worked with two prospective Slovenian ISA Course Presenters to run the ISA courses in Slovenia in the future. Overall the courses were a great success and all involved were happy with the quality of the courses and the new information and skills that they learned.
