I had Mr. Nowostawsky for Bike touring (intensive course). If you intend to take this intensive course please, do exercise a bit because you will die during the four hours of biking, especially if it is raining and windy. Be sure that you can ride for the whole touring because if you give up during the bike touring, you will lose marks. Also, the bike touring occurs twice. It will be either 2 consecutive Saturday or Sunday dependant of the weekend you chose.

I had him for the skiing intensive and it was a pretty chill class. You don't need to buy the gym book pack thing...He's a pretty cool guy except don't sit in the front unless you plan to bring an umbrella to class because he spits like theres no tomorrow; just spare yourself the spit and sit on the sides or in the back. I recommend.

I really liked his class. for once a teacher that just lets you play. forget about all the other b.s. that other teachers make you do before you actually start a game... this teacher doesn't make you do any of that! :) Just try hard, don't give up, and do what he tells you and you'll be fine. He's a funny guy if you get his sense of humor. Don't be offended if he says something "rude" it's not meant to hurt anyones feelings haha!! :P
