Mountain Boarding / Grass Boarding (seasonal May-September)
This is a must do thrill for everyone; young or old. If you skate, snowboard, ski, wake board or surf this is for you.If you don't, this is still for you!
Not as extreme as you may first imagine, like all activities and indeed all learning we start you from scratch and go at your speed.
You will be kitted out with the required equipment of knee, elbow and wrist protection as well your helmet. You will then be given a board suitable for your height / weight.
A full hour's instruction will start you on a very gentle slope where you will travel no faster than walking pace. Here you will gain an understanding of turning and body positioning. Don't be concerned they are a lot easier to control than you may think.
Once you have mastered the basics you can practice these skills in the beginners zone for a further hour under the watchful eye of your instructor. If your progress is of a level that the instructor is comfortable you will be introduced to the intermediate area which has obstacles and more challenging terrain.
Give it a go!
