I am currently an elite sponsored race paddler for ‘Ocean Monkeys Paddle Boards', SUPing for 10 years and teaching on the water for over 25 years with SUP instructor qualification. I race and surf SUP but also love to go for long cruises to find hidden beaches, coves and caves. My passion is to share my expertise of stand up paddle boarding as it is the best way to experience life from the ‘Neptune’s perspective’. My many other water qualifications include beach surf lifeguard (trainer/assessor) and National Event water safety manager, which is why I'm a water safety crusader, living with my awesome family only yards from the beach in Devon.
