Nick Cunliffe Q&A

Nick Cunliffe Q&A

This post is an interview with Nick Cunliffe. He is a level 5 BCU coach and is based in Anglesey. Nick will be taking part on the Sea Kayak Leader Training (4*) & Paddler Development course that Roger Chandler will be running in November. Nick runs Kayak Essentials.

I was keen to know a little bit more about Nick's passion for kayaking and coaching. I was also keen to ask questions of someone who has been coaching and assessing sea kayak leaders for a long time. I hope the questions in the interview give candidates a little help and support on their journey.

Roger Chandler Q&A (1)

In 2016, Roger Chandler from Coastal Spirit, teamed up with Explora to create a yearly sea kayaking course that supports paddlers looking to fast track their development. The 4 Star Leader and Paddler Development Course  has a 2 week duration and takes place in November in Anglesey. The idea to create the course arose from the fact that most training courses are delivered over 2 or 3 days and paddlers then practice over time what they have learnt. But what if instead of cramming in, we had plenty of time to learn, fail, develop and achieve?
