A nice little paddle with Ed Byrnes on the river Stort started his interest in paddling the rivers of Great Britain and beyond, with trips on the Spey and adventures with TGO (The great Outdoors) https://www.tgomagazine.co.uk/ed-byrne/ed-byrne-tries-whitewater-canoeing/  Thanks for the write up.

  • "We all thoroughly enjoyed our day canoeing on the river! We hired two canoes and it was a great family activity that our two young children could both get involved in with their own paddles so they didn't get bored at all. There were lots of interesting things to see on our journey and Peter gave the children eye spy sheets so they could spot landmarks on route. It was a great new experience for all of us and the tips Peter gave us at the start of the day were invaluable! Peter was really helpful in recommending a suitable paddle location and taking my partner to the end of the route to drop off our car before we started. Whoosh explore provided life jackets for all of us that fitted perfectly and dry bags to keep all our things dry, which was really useful. We will definitely be returning to the river soon and will definietely book with Whoosh explore as the friendly, helpful and good value service made it a super day!"

    Kind regards,

    Hi Peter,

    I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving up your time to work at the SuperNova event this year. It was a great success and this was all down to the superb support you and all the others showed on the day. It was great to work with someone with such passion and drive and it was no wonder why we had so much great feedback and many many happy young people taking inspiration from this event.

    Well done and once again, thank you very much.

    Kind regards,

    Whoosh Explore allowed my friend and I to hire two kayaks for a great day of paddling. Peter kindly left the kayaks secured at our chosen pick up point and we were able to collect and drop off at our convenience. 
    Great fun and very easy. 
    Thanks to all at Whoosh. 
    Best wishes.

    We really enjoyed our course on Sunday and I cant think of any way in which you could improve the day - it was just fantastic as it was. I was quite nervous but quickly overcome that by you expert tuition.
    I will contact you if we decide to take part in any further paddling?

    Thank you so much and good luck in this venture I am sure you will make a success of it
