“I went on a canoeing course with Louise and it was really nice to have a female coach. She was able to teach me in a way that suited me as a female paddler and I felt much more comfortable with her than I have in the past with some male coaches. She understood my learning needs and allowed me to relax, but at the same time challenged me when necessary. Her technical ability was really good and she has inspired me to push myself further. Louise is a great coach and I am very keen to book again in the future!”
