20 teenage boys jumping off rocks

Stephan Metcalf, Portrush Presbyterian, Church Group

Living on the beautiful North Coast, we were keen to introduce the boys to our amazing coastline and the fun you can have, but to do it safely. Taking around 20 teenage boys jumping off rocks with the possibility of exploring caves etc was a bit daunting, but Matt and the guys put us at ease and the equipment provided and advice given was first class. Some of the boys were apprehensive about what they would be asked to do. It was great to see them try something (with great encouragement from Matt and their peers) and to see the sense of achievement and enjoyment it brought. This could then be relived through the awesome photographs on Facebook. After an exciting night, the only complaint was that we ran out of light and had to go home. My advice is, give it a go, you’ll have a great time!
