Congratulations to Sarah Hrdlicka and Alex Chandler - recipients of the SUP SURF Instructor Scholarship! They will be off to Tofino, BC early October to participate in Paddle Canada's SUP Surf Instructor Course. Super exciting!
Request for applications for this scholarship opportunity went out on CKNS's website and Facebook page. It was wonderful to see applications from around Nova Scotia and even better to see the enthusiasm and experience each application highlighted for Stand Up Paddling in this province.
After a process of review and consideration, the scholarships were awarded to Sarah Hrdlicka and Alex Chandler.
Thank you to all who applied. This opportunity is a big step for developing instructor capacity for the Paddle Canada SUP Surf program on the East Coast. CKNS plans to continue to support safety, growth, and development in SUP (and other paddling pursuits).
Stay tuned for future opportunities in Nova Scotia for our CKNS members.
