From a young age out fishing with my dad on his boat to now volunteering at HM Coastguard and helping save lives, I have always been drawn to the water.
For me living by the coast, the smell of the fresh sea air, walking my dogs barefoot on the beach and enjoying a BBQ with friends on a late summers evening is priceless.
5 years ago I discovered paddle boarding and just had to give it a go, so with board and paddle in hand I took to the water and from that moment I was well and truly bitten by the bug.
Friends and family asked me to show them how to stand up paddle board and before I knew was booked on an instructor course and being trained by BSUPA Head Coach Simon Bassett.
I have since taught more than 500 people to SUP and enjoyed sharing my passion for this wonderful sport with every one of them.
On my journey so far I have created many amazing memories and had the pleasure of being part of some great experiences.
From filming with Betty Television for Channel 4's 'How to Get Fit Fast' to being under the watchful eye of 4 x Sup World Champion Casper Steinfath.
Now my love for racing and competition has ignited a new fire in me. Being part of such a great community with N1SCO has helped so much.
As I look to the future who know's what and where my Sup journey may take me, one thing is for sure, I will continue to share it with you.
