For both of us, paddleboarding is not just about the sport, it’s a way of life. We both grew up next to Paddle Cabin’s home, yet we met at sunrise at the summit of mount Snowdon, our favourite mountain, back in 2014 and never looked back.
We loved our coaching journeys with British Canoeing. When travel was allowed last year, we spent as much time as we could exploring Kent and its secret hidden SUP spots, paddling 350km of our local waterways.
