Lives in Midhurst, but home beach is Pagham, West Sussex, loves, SUP racing, also dabbles in waves and windsurf
From a background of windsurfing, dragon boat paddling and outrigging in the early 80’s, I started SUP racing in 2013. In 2014 I took 4th place overall in the 12’6 UK Series.
I have retrained as a SUP, Gym and & Spinning Instructor after 25 years as a Lawyer, working in Oz and the UK. I’m now very lucky to work with Nik Baker at K66.
Living on Hayling Island, South Coast, UK I’m
passionate about my SUP & windsurfing and in my spare time dabble in road and mountain biking.
I turned my love for the water into a career and in 2005 I started Surf Steps, a Surf and SUP training centre in Bournemouth.
I have spent my life surfing and I’m an ISA Surf and SUP Coach Educator. Having seen the potential in SUP this led to the development of my coaching sessions. I started racing and surf supping in 2011 and in 2015 had my best result yet, achieving 1st place overall in the UK SUP Series. I am currently the 2015 UK National 12’6 Champion.
My dream of a more water filled life was realised through passion, hard work and vision. I see my role is to help people achieve theirs too!
I have a love for Surf SUP. I took my first National SUP Surfing Title of British Junior Champion in 2012 and went on to take the Senior Title in both 2013 & 2104.
I placed 2nd in the Nationals in 2015 and also in 2015 I represented TEAM GB in the ISA World SUP Championships in Sayulita, Mexico finishing with a World Ranking of 16.
I live at West Wittering on the South Coast and am currently completing my studies at Seaford College
I’m a long time surfer and SUP paddler from Cornwall. I like to ride all types of surf craft in all types of waves. When I’m not in the water I’m the ION and Fanatic SUP rep for Cornwall and Devon. I get as stoked seeing people enjoy the water as I do surfing. See you in there!
I live in Jersey with my Dad, Mum and little bro. I try and get in the water at least three times a week on a board as well as doing lifeguard training three times a week. I love travelling to races and surf whenever I can.In 2015 I had a busy year competing. I am particularly proud of my 1st place in the Jersey Paddle Club Summer and Winter Series and 1st place in the National SUP Club Championships U15
I enjoy all aspects of Stand up Paddleboarding and some recent results and adventures include:
1st in Great Glenn Challenge, completed 11 Cities non stop, did 24hr solo 96 mile circumnavigation of Isle of Wight and represented UK at inaugural ISA SUP World Championships. And thanks to K-66, Fanatic and ION, I get to do this using incredible kit.
