Rod's lessons were great - he's really friendly and immediately identifies what you need to do to improve your technique. You'll come on leaps and bounds.

Great straight forward instruction, easy to understand and learnt some good subtle techniques as well as realising I wasn’t doing it quite right before!

We really enjoyed our lesson despite having most of it in a white out. Our instructor adapted his lesson to the conditions and taught us more in 2-hours than we have previously learned in a whole week of lessons.
