On a day that threatened to be wet and miserable a group of brave Extreme Outdoor Education students loaded up on the bus and headed out to the local treasure that is Cultus Lake. Normally a zoo filled with an excessive number of boats in the summer months, this work day trip saw calm waters and barely any other people out on the water. The weather even cooperated and students spent the trip basking in sunshine, while they learnt paddling techniques and used these to navigate the Lake. Highlights included students attempting to switch stance while paddling (which resulted in an instructor in the water), backflips from boards into the water, and the end of the paddling portion of the trip where participants left out on the water spent more time in the water than on their boards as their balance was sabotaged by their peers. Overall a great day at the Lake, an awesome introduction for many to the sport or paddle boarding, and smiles abounding throughout the group. Kudos to Main Beach Boat Rentals for their awesome job making the day memorable for the class. Outdoor Education students please leave a 100 word blog response below.
