I went to Iran last year in April, so had a strong knowledge and experience base to readily accept another offer from the Iranian Surfing Association to run some courses this year. But this time for longer, for more courses and see new places!

The DSRF (Danish Surf and rafting Federation) Hosted two ISA one day SUP modules in great summer conditions in Northern Jutland last weekend.
SE/ISA Level one surf coach course (3-4 May) & SLSGB surf coach rescue course (5-6 May), Bournemouth, England
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.
The courses enable the students, once qualified, to coach Surfing sessions for beginner to intermediate students. The awards have worldwide recognition.
Andy will be running more courses at Surf Steps in Bournemouth, for further details go to https://andyjoyce.info/coaching-and-lifeguarding-courses/lifeguard-and-other-rescue-awards/course-dates-2018/
