Despite growing up near Sheffield I always had a love for the sea when we would go on holiday in Devon every summer. Then moving to the west coast of Wales grew the love even more with surfing becoming a new passion. Whether I was on a surfboard, bodyboard, skimboard, and more recent sup board, I love riding waves.
I have moved more over to sup as it’s more versatile and gets me put on the water more then any other watersport I’ve done, plus I love learning new things and putting myself against the elements.
