I started kayaking at 9 years old. In my late teens, I started to paddle more and more white water solely on the rivers of the Scottish highlands. In winter with low water levels, surfing was the second option and excellent training for the forthcoming snow melt to come, once more filling the rocky rivers with ice cold water. No dry suits in them days.
Now 56, still paddling, but now living in Norway and sea kayaking is my passion rather than river kayaking. Brand ambassador to two companies Aquabound paddles and Yak adventure equipment, whos support has been essential in being able to continue in my favourite pastime.
