Tell us a bit about yourself
Over the last 6 years I have been on an incredible journey! Learning to SUP has changed my life and is still continuing to challenge and inspire me.
Becoming one of the UK’s top Elite racing paddlers for the last 7 seasons has led me on an epic journey to challenge who I am and what I can achieve, always striving to learn and empower both myself and other paddlers. My love for all SUP has me coaching surfing, SUP racing, white water paddling and adventure paddling all over the UK and Europe.
- Some of my SUP career highlights include;
- 1st place- Bagmeil Race France
- 1st place – Head of the Dart 2018, 2nd 2019
- 1st place overall UKSUP Clubs National Series for 2019
- 1st place Exhammer 2019
- 1st Senior SUPBIKERUN 2018, 2019 and 3rd overall women
- 2nd place Hurley white water Classic 2019
- 2nd place Nottingham white Water SUPX
- 1st place women Sup X Llangollen Wales
- 1st place overall 2018 Welsh national
I have had the privilege of being on the podium at every race in the last 6 years, wether it was distance, tech, down wind or white water sup, but I’ve also enjoyed helping others to succeed and have had the pleasure of organising, training and managing the Welsh National Team to participate at the European and World SUP championships for the past few seasons.
