By Chris / On / In Chris' Blog, Podcasts

My latest episode of Last Call on the PSIA-AASI First Chair Podcast is up! This one is all about my experience learning to wakefoil on Slingshot’s Wakefoiler, the benefits that you can receive from trying new activities, and how e-learning opportunities can help you (or your students) get a leg up on learning something new.

Wakefoiling is a totally different sensation, and has been challenging and rewarding to learn. Have you tried wakefoiling? Let me know in the comments


Have a listen, and then check out the video from a recent wakefoil session!
