So heres the question.
With so little experience will i be able to enjoy the week or spend all week like a total beginner falling over constantly? The package has 2 hour lessons every day. Obv i have no time now to practice before i go.
I also know its a very vague, almost unanswerable question. But i guess i really want to know if im wasting my time and money. I really want to go and prob may not get another chance for years.

Thank you all.

Paul.
Lemme guess...toeside you can turn but heelside you cant? That was my issue....midway when id pick up speed i would lose control swing my shoulder back...lose form and would go straight into the ground....
