Matt, thru a well thought out approach to each day, helped me take the next step and assisted me in comfortably engaging in new challenges. At the end of each day I left with a great sense of achievement and a deeper understanding of the workings of moving water. Having experienced Matt's dedication to helping every paddler achieve more control and comfort in one's own paddling skills I can do nothing other than "Very highly recommend" Matt's coaching. Thank you Matt." - Frank, TripAdvisor Course Duration: 2 Days. Start Time: 8:30 am. Location: Medway River, Greenfield, NS.
