Great Half Term Activity

User Review

Good Points
Scott is a brilliant instructor, both Oliver and Monty had an incredible time and rated their morning with Scott 10/10 ! If your children are anything like mine and prefer to take cycling instruction from a non-parent (!) then Scott can deliver safety, fun and skills in one go. No surprises Oliver and Monty are begging for their next lesson!

Great Learning and Lots of Fun!

User Review

Good Points
Great instruction; lots of content but delivered in a relaxed and fun style. I learnt a great deal in just a couple of hours. And Skip was able to tailor the experience to stretch us just the right amount, adjusting the exercises for each participant to ensure everyone got the most from the session. Will definitely be coming back for more!

Awesome day out....

A great Father's Day present - I have been mountain biking for years but never had any coaching like this - really improved my control of the bike, my speed downhill, particularly around the technical parts of the woods - all whist having a good laugh.....very highly recommend!

Great birthday present from my wife. 5 Stars to her!

Subsequent to an accident whilst out riding my mountain bike on the trails amongst the Surrey Hills (it was my fourth ride out and I ran out of talent), my wife bought me a 2 hour skills voucher with Scott as a birthday gift. It has to be one of the best birthday presents I've ever had. Scott is a great guy and makes you feel at ease in no time. I was impressed with Scotts ability to articulate and demonstrate in such a way that it makes it very easy to understand what he is asking of you which means you get to maximum your time and ultimately maximum what you learn from Scott. What I took away with me after my 2 hours was incredibly valuable. I quickly established that I've been doing it all wrong, right down to my positioning, my braking, my line of vision, pretty much everything. Thanks to Scott I now feel far more confident and far more comfortable on my bike, so much so that I feel I can now begin to explore the full potential of my bike and enjoy my time on the trails so much more. If you are new to mountain biking or if you are planning to take up mountain biking, I would seriously recommend that you buy some time with Scott and avoid making the same mistakes I made and get a head start by learning from a master instead of learning the hard way. Great job Scott and thank you for your expert tuition.

A day to remember

I honestly can say I was a doubter about this when my wife booked it for me, but what a great day. After a couple of hours with Scott (skip) I was flying down some technical flowing single tracks with good drops and burms. In fact at this weekends mtb race I clicked fastest on strava downhill section for that day!! Just need to get faster up hill!!! I'm going back to SHAC for more!!

Skip was excellent. He understood our group very quickly and got the perfect balance of tuition and fun! Weekend couldn't have been any better planned. His knowledge of the trails was amazing. He picked out routes that tested us just the right amount.
Thanks!

<div>The lesson really helped with my cornering and jumps! It's was a brilliant and fun day out. Scott was a great teacher who explained things really well and I learnt a lot . My best mate Harvey who came too said "I can't thank Skip enough for what he taught me I had a fab day"</div>

Superb! Scott is a magician!

User Review

Good Points
<div>Just wow!&nbsp; I thought Scott had his work cut out for him in the form of my wife, and I of course thought I knew what I needed to know (yes... I was THAT guy!).&nbsp; Scott had us straight onto the bikes and assessed our abilities or lack thereof in no time, and proceeded with the tuiton and demonstration in the beautiful Surrey Hills.&nbsp; Scott makes learning so easy with his considered approach and constant encouragement.&nbsp; The session ended with my wife completing trails she absolutley would not have even attempted before Scott's training, and I was amazed at how much I learnt too! &nbsp;<br /><br />I cannot recommend Scott's training enough... for novice and more experienced riders alike!&nbsp; We both now have a new excitement for mountain biking and we are looking forward to exploring more of the Surrey Hills.&nbsp; </div>

<div>No bad points!&nbsp; We will be back for more training as there is so much more we can learn.</div>

Turnaround

User Review

Good Points
<div><br />I switched from road biking to mountain biking, but pretty soon realised&nbsp; that this required a completely different skill set. I sought out an old mate, Scott Innes, who l knew to already be an accomplished mountain bike rider. Coincidentally, Scott had set up SHAC, which, among other outdoor sports, caters for mountain bike skills development at all levels. Scotts patience, professionalism and good humour, plus great local knowledge has helped me overcome some fears of single track downhill biking, added a fun factor, and given me the skills to start really enjoying this sport. Plus, after one coaching session, my wife, who is a complete beginner, is now hooked. I cannot rate Scott/SHAC highly enough - absolutely excellent!<br /><br /><br /></div>
