      Hi Scott! Good to hear from you:)
      Yes, I’ve got a level one ISA surf course running early next year.
      I haven’t finalised the date yet, so drop us an email at : and I’ll send you the dates when I have them and go through the details of the 2 courses. Usually have to be qualified at level one for 1 year before level 2, but will discuss with you.
      All the best,
      Andy x
