Originally from a competitive sports background in Rugby, I eventually realised what I actually loved was going fast on some kind of board.
I’ve been teaching board sports for over 15 years now, the last 5 being on Lake Windermere. I feel very privileged to be sharing amazing memories with students in one of the most beautiful locations in the country.
When I’m not riding or teaching, I’m usually found elbow deep in acrylic or spray paint creating vibrant surf art.
|Wake or Surf||As long as it’s moving and I can stand on it, I’m happy.|
|Boat Speed||On The Limit.|
|Ballast Setting||2 Sumo's!|

|Job||Wakefoiling Coach/ Full Time Software Engineer|
I’ve grown up boating on Windermere, first learning to waterski when I was 5 years old. The family winter holidays would be skiing and summer holidays would be spent on the boat.
I spent a summer during university teaching wakeboarding and waterskiing at low wood bay watersports, where I loved coaching beginners to the sport. Before going on to pursue software engineering in the aerospace industry.
The past couple of seasons I have been focusing on Wakefoiling, which has quickly become my favourite watersport. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to coach others in this new sport!

My family have a small boat house on the lake so I’ve been coming to The Lake District most weekends since I was born, Its my home now for the summer!
One of the joys of living here is hiking the fells with family but I also love ripping down them on my mountain bike when possible.
Teaching people to Wakeboard and Wakesurf has always been a passion in my family. I love to see the smile on someones face when they catch their first wave, an experience they’ll never forget!
