As a surfer of 15 years and paddleboarder of over 6 years, I have been fortunate enough to be an ambassador for Jobe Watersports, in the area of Stand Up Paddleboarding since 2013. For as long as I can remember I have always had a love of the water and still to this day find it as my only true escape from the daily stresses of life. I’m one of the oddballs who much prefers a cold water session with a winter wetsuit and a coffee afterwards to thaw out, as opposed to a summer session in board shorts!
I believe the Surf/SUP community has a vital part to play in keeping our waters clean and clear and it should be an integral part of the lessons we teach the next generation who wish to treat them as their playground. As a father of young children who share my passion for being in the water, it is vital that we all do our bit to ensure that these and the wildlife who live there are kept how nature intended. That is why I feel privileged to be able to work with the other SAS Reps to promote the amazing work Surfers Against Sewage do and assist wherever I possibly can.
I feel very fortunate to live in Kent with easy access to amazing beaches, rivers and lakes. Let’s work together to keep them that way!
