What's next...

 Another summer of fun! Training, coaching and competing on some of the most amazing rivers around the world. Introducing our daughter to the amazing kayaking community and taking her on adventures all over the world.

Best things about paddling - I enjoy everything about boating. I love the feeling of freedom you get every time you get on the water. I love the fact it gives you the opportunity to travel all across the world exploring parts of the country you wouldn't normally get to see. I like the fact that although it is an individual activity, in which you constantly face personal challenges, it is also very much a team sport. Not only that I get to share all these amazing experiences out on the rivers with friends from all around the world. Its awesome.

Other hobbies - I have always been involved in sport since a very young age, spending most of my childhood playing football, mountain biking, roller blading or taking part in some type of water sport. I still have the same desire now to be constantly involved in activity, so if i'm not in a kayak i'll be out and about somewhere taking part in another type of sport.
