Sian Sykes, from Psyched Paddleboarding, based in North Wales has become the first person to achieve the Water Skills Academy Expedition Guide Status, a globally recognised award at the highest level.
This qualification is groundbreaking in SUP guide education, it includes all aspects required to lead SUP clients in remote, wilderness environments during multi day journeys. It brings together key essentials to travel safely, ethically and with confidence, utilising the wide range of skills.
“I am delighted to achieve highest level qualification for SUP guiding. I enjoy nothing more than to inspire people into SUP and I am absolutely love guiding in remote places. The award links well with my International Mountain Leader award and I look forward to lots of great expeditions with customers. I am stoked to be part of the WSA ambassador and training team.” – Sian Sykes, Psyched Paddleboarding
