The courses were held at Surf Steps Surf and SUP academy of excellence in 4 days of record early May tempretures in Bournemouth, Dorset, England.

11 students, based in Europe, spent the 4 days developing their coaching and learning essential rescue and first aid skills, with International trainer Andy Joyce.
