Yes, the old cliché is actually true. If you wear really good outdoor clothes or use really good outdoor gear, the adventures get even better. I'm happy to be one of the Palm Equipment Ambassadors and I love using their paddling gear.

Facing my fears (and a rock) in amazing sLOVEnia.

When do you know you've done something life changing? How do you feel? What is going on in your head? What emotions are your feeling in your body and soul? Well, for me, all of that put together in one small sentence, would be: WHITE WATER PADDLING IN SOCA RIVER!

Wales is full of Swedes!!!

Anglesey will never be the same. My friend Carin had invited 6 clients and friends to join us for 5 days of 4 Star Training with Nick and Wales really treated them nice. There was weather, of course, and most of the time it was pretty good weather too. One of the paddlers, Bengt, had been here 4 years ago and it was really fun to see him rediscovering the Welsh water running through the tide races. It looked like Bengt REALLY enjoyed the paddling over here, already from day one.

During the week, the group did lots of excersices from the 4 Star syllabus and MORE! The best thing with throwing a 4 Star Trainig during 5 days instead of just 3, is that it gives us all some slack in the planning. We can do more paddling, more tidal and chart planning, have more coffee breaks, do more surfing, rescue each other until we are exhausted, enjoy the wonderful sea cliffs longer, have a few more cups of tea, tow more and longer, eat more, (drink more?!?!?!?), capsize as much as we want and see more of Anglesey and the beautiful surroundings of the Snowdonia Mountains.

I think all of them learned something new during these days, at least that is what I hope. I very much enjoyed their company and it was fun days on the water. So thank you all for joining us and I hope to see you all again, maybe back here in Wales or in Sweden!
