Meet Our Team

We think it’s super important that our customers have an idea of the team behind SKS ‘The Adventure Paddling Company’ so that we can put people at ease the minute they meet us, so there are no apprehensions when joining us on an adventure.

Our team are fully experienced in coaching and guiding but possibly more important than the fore mentioned is our empathy towards our customers, we still remind ourselves to this day what it was like when we first learnt how to paddle and surf, so no Hero’s here. Nothing could be truer than “a safe and enjoyable environment make for a great learning environment”.
