Joe has been been paddling for fourteen years and coaching for around twelve. Having grown up in the Isle of Man, Sea Kayaking was an obvious discipline of paddlesport for Joe to fall into.
His earlier experiences in competitive fields namely Canoe Polo and Ultra Marathon kayaking, have shaped his vision of sea kayaking and he enjoys dovetailing these elements into his work as a guide and coach.
Joe draws heavily from his 2012 solo circumnavigation of Mainland Britain and 2015 solo circumnavigation of Ireland. These experiences affirmed his belief in practising real which is expressed in his delivery of incident management and rescue training.
Joe continues to learn from the coastal environment and from colleagues and students who he works with.
