We had the pleasure of visiting Germany for 2 weeks in March to co-teach a couple ACA courses with Raphael Kuner of RAFF TAFF a very cool paddlesport education company in southern Germany. Raffa hosted us for the time we were there and showed us a GREAT time. We sta
yed at his home and were welcomed into his family by his wife and 3 young adult kids. We had a BLAST paddling, exploring the countryside and visiting the cities of Basel, Switzerland and Freiburg, Germany.
This is a BIG church in Basel.
While we were there we taught both an ACA Level 1 & 2 SUP and a Level 1 & 2 Coastal Kayak instructor certification workshop. The SUP course we taught on the Rhine river which divides Switzerland and Germany and the Kayak course we taught on Lake Schluchsee up in the Black Forest region.
Congratulations to the 6 new SUP instructors and 2 Updated SUP instructors from the area who participated.
Congratulations to the 4 new Kayak instructors who braved the ice of Lake Schluchsee for 4 days!
