Hans was a great teacher for all levels and showed a great detail and support and encouragement for our 12 year old daughter who likes to learn “at her own pace”. He was always positive whether he was teaching the kids or the grownups. Many thanks for all the photos. Take care and all the best - The Woods.

We are beginners and after 2 days session, almost all of us able to complete a green lane. Hans is a great Instructor! He is detail in teaching, patient and save us when we are in trouble with his great and powerful body. His English accent is easy to understand and use to get you catch up difficult thing in simple manner. Special thanks to Hans for this wonderful photograph and bring us so much special memory. Also the manager George, his well organizing the class and take care us. The early preparation of the rental gear is the very best move that will make us to immediately get into the class.
