I have been around kayaks and canoes as long as I remember. One of my first experiences was at PGL. I loved paddling so much that I saved up and bought my first playboat. At the time it was way too big for me to pull any moves but quickly gave me a passion for freestyle.
For the last 3 years I have been training with Kayakojacko coaching team, through this I have progressed to the standard that I am on the Great Britain Freestyle Kayaking Squad. This is my second year on the squad. I regularly train with the team and compete in events across the UK. I aim to compete in the 2012 European Championships. I often paddle at Hurley Weir and Nottingham White Water Centre but also further afield. Last year I travelled to Canada to paddle the Ottawa River and surrounding waves.
I am sponsored by PGL Travel Ltd. PGL are the leading provider of activity holidays and courses for schools, youth groups and individuals. I am also supported by Canoe Kayak Store, based at Cardiff White Water Centre and Damery, Gloucestershire. Recently I have become a Wavesport Ambassador, see me paddling my new ProjectX at events across the UK! See www.pgl.co.uk, www.canoeandkayakstore.co.uk and www.wavesport.com for more details.

Hurley holds a special place in my kayaking heart. It is where I did my first loop, my first GB selections and where met a lot of my paddling pals. For the 109 competitors at the classic this year, I am sure…Continue

With so little rain, its a surprise I have been able to do any paddling at all! Luckily, for my sanity, I have been able to do a low level upper dart run and also some freestyleing!
The weekend of 10th/11th September saw a full-on weekend of freestyle and fun at the National Water Sports centre, Nottingham. The grand final of the ever popular Youth Freestyle…Continue

The chance to try all things paddlesport! From the very latest boats, paddles and kit to something new like Stand-Up Paddle Boarding. The day proved to be yet another great day on the water at CIWW!

Recently I have been mixing my padding up a bit... Surf Kayaking in Pembrokeshire, Sea Kayaking on the Severn Estuary and (of course!) freestyle.
Despite the small surf (about 2 or 3ft all week) at Whitesands beach I still was able to get out on the water to throw some wave moves and work on some of the higher scoring tricks. I have been working hard on my Air Screws, Back Stabs and Helixs. Also did some longer paddles exploring caves and looking for seals!
