    If your looking for a well paid job then don't do it, its long hours and low pay. But it will be rewarding and you get to play out doors all day and night

    My advice be to offer you skills on a voluntry basis first and see what happens. There are instructors courses available but they are expensive and not many are recognised vocationally. I help out as a assistant instructor, its hard work but I get to meet loads of great people and do all the courses for free. That for me is enough for now, I don't want to do it as my main job as it would take me away from my family far too much.

    To be honest I think there are too many instructors out there for the potential customer base that there is at present , half the blokes I know that did courses went and set up there own 'schools ',, forget about it as a profession and enjoy it as a hobby, it's much more rewarding and fulfilling that way.

    Good points! Think I'll take your advise and keep it as a hobby and keep the skill practicing going. Gonna keep making the youtube vids etc
