Teaches Outdoor Life
If you think you have difficulty finding Morten inside the school, it makes good sense. He is more often to be found in a treetop, on the back of a surfboard or screwed down in a kayak than he is in the classroom. Morten is the definition of outdoor: He is a surf instructor (both in SUP, paddle and windsurf), tree climbing instructor, wall climbing instructor, kayak instructor, mountain bike instructor, diving instructor, lifeguard and hunting instructor. In other words: There isn't an activity out in the open that Morten doesn't have expertise in.
Morten has previously taught at after-schools, surf courses, seminars and as a nature guide. He is very concerned that the outdoor profession should be accessible to everyone. Whether you've slept more in a shelter than in a bed, or whether you don't own a pair of rubber boots: Morten meets you at your level, will make Outdoor the time of your life!
