ABOUT THE WATER SKILLS ACADEMY?
Water Skills Academy (WSA) was born out of a desire amongst experienced watersports participants and trainers with the aim to amalgamate some of the most popular watersports courses and qualifications under one umbrella. WSA is continually evolving, learning and developing new products. Currently, WSA offers instructor qualifications, workshops, schools/centre accreditation, mentoring and consultancy across the disciplines of SUP, surfing, lifeguarding, sit on top kayaking and coasteering. Over the years, through the many different ways we have accessed the ocean, open water and rivers we have learnt our trade from lots of different sources and sharing our knowledge is one of our goals. For those who wish to start coaching, we aim to equip you with the skills in your chosen discipline to run sessions safely and informatively for both the public and friends or family.
In order to facilitate our goals, we have selected a fantastic trainer team specialising in their chosen disciplines and all with the same aim – a love of their sport and industry and a passion to educate and develop those wishing to enter the outdoor industry market.
We have recruited some top athletes to our ambassador network – all who have a very good pedigree in their discipline and more importantly a group of individuals that share our philosophy and values. if you have any industry concerns or questions that we cannot answer then our chosen ambassadors are specialists in their areas and may be able to help.
WSA also offers SUP adventure trips to some amazing locations such as the Scottish Highlands, Norwegian fjords and the Himalayas to name a few, check out our SUP holidays. Our guided SUP trips really are a chance to discover some truly amazing SUP destinations, to experience nature and explore different cultures.
