WHITE WATER KAYAKING

I engaged with Gwilym a few months ago to basically 'hold my hand' as I took my first foray back onto moving water following a 12 year break from kayaking. I still had the required skills but was lacking confidence. Having previously paddled up to grade 5 in the Alps and Norway and holding my 4* award, I wanted to get back on the water and rediscover my love of white water. Gwilym put me at ease rim the moment I met him and straight away, I appreciated his calm, relaxed yet thoroughly professional manner. The river trip I day 1 went well and things started to come back to me. Under Gwilym's expert guidance, I was soon tweaking my technique and feeling a lot happier on the water. Day 2 saw me taking the lead for several sections with Gwilym complimenting my correct decisions whilst offering well timed pointers on areas for improvement. I got so much out of the 2 days and am now looking to book my new style 4* training to upgrade my old award; something Gwilym said I was easily ready for.i commend Gwilym to anybody who is looking for kayak tuition without reservation and I look forward to benefiting from his coaching again soon. Mark T

Winter Mountaineering

Having spent the previous week working on winter skills with Gwilym up in Scotland, I have to say that I am really impressed with his professionalism and service. I would highly recommend Gwilym in all aspects of outdoor adventure due to his extensive knowledge and expertise. Thank you. Jamie L

Instructor Development Scheme

I`m almost half way through my 24 month instructor training with Gwilym, and its the best decision i made on joining the extended training scheme that he offers. I`m still able to work full time, train and gain my own personal training days in between. We`ve already covered all areas from hiking, climbing, scrambling, navigation, biking and paddling and trained in various locations from Dartmoor, Wales, Exeter, Scotland and the New Forest. Gwilym`s shown me how to improve my skills and its already given me more confidence in what i do. He`s a wealth of knowledge and i always learn something new on a training weekend. 
He`s fully flexible with dates and activities, its up to you what and how much you want to achieve over the 2 years, there`s no pressure. He`s always a phone call or email away for questions and queries. 
I have no doubt in recommending Gwilym and have full confidence in his training techniques and knowledge. Vicky J

Summer ML Preperation:

As an ML trainee, Gwilym gave me the opportunity to gain professional hands on experience assisting him leading his client groups in the mountains which I found invaluable. He also spent time helping me prepare in depth for my assessment, which I'm pleased to say I passed first time, thanks to Gwilym's support, encouragement and patience.
I have no hesitation in recommending Gwilym's training services. He is a true professional, supportive, technically sound, a good motivator with a lot of patience and an excellent all round instructor.  Nick H

Winter Mountaineering Course:

Thanks Gwilym for another great week! It was excellent to consolidate on the skills learnt from you last year. Some epic classic mountaineering routes bagged this week, and an awesome days ice climbing on the Ben on my last day on some great IV and V graded routes.  Craig W

Summer Scrambling Course:

Gwilym is the ultimate professional. He planned and prepared a tailor-made trip in the welsh mountains which had the correct balance of enjoyment and challenge.
What made the trip so enjoyable was the reassurance that I was in safe and knowledgeable hands, but also the fact I had a good companion to share the adventure.
I now look forward to the next challenge.” Alex R
