About Me

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.

 

On Canoe Kayak Magazine’s Website, I blog regularly. To follow my kayaking travels visit:

Hurley Classic 2012

2012, what a year! I am sitting here on New Year’s eve writing this article when I should probably be out celebrating with everyone else. But as I am not here is some more of what team wavesport have been up to in the last while. TheHurley ClassicHurley 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 that thinking of the famous playspot also…See More

How to convert a K1 kayak to a C1 canoe

A video explaining how to convert a K1 to a C1. I used the Wavesport ProjectX 48 as a boat. I have tried to go into lots of detail including sizes etc. There...

Paddling Exploits!

Hi Guys, 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 series was held on the Saturday and the highlight of the GB Freestyle calendar, the Club Championships, was held on Sunday. The…See More

Mixing up my paddling!

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! On Sunday I had my earliest ever wake…See More

World Championships... Days 4 to 6

Wrote this a few days ago but only just got round to posting...

Since my last blog post there have been lots of changes here at NOC… you can definitely tell there is a World Championships on the way! The stands, or bleachers as they are called over here, have been erected, lights for the night time semi-finals have arrived and tents have been put up everywhere to designate the different athlete zones. A massive banner stretching across the wall next to the feature has also be put up,…

World Freestyle Championships... Days 1 to 3

As with many great kayaking trips; the journey begins at stupid o’clock in a UK airport with an overweight boat and an argument with the check in assistant over why they shouldn’t charge you an extra $100 for taking a paddle. Why all the stress? The 2013 Freestyle Kayaking World Championships of course!…
