“Had our final Improvers lesson today, I must say I will be sad to see them finish, feel that all the knowledge, tips and feedback Hugh gave us is starting to sink in. Would recommend this to anyone thinking of changing their board because they aren’t progressing, or wondering why they can’t turn like the big boys.” Peggy Edwards, Pontypridd.
