About This Guide

Richards paddling career has taken him in a multitude of different directions in the past 20 odd years from surf canoe, a bit of kayak then more surf then surf skis/ wave skis. The overriding influence has always been the sea. His first boat was to be used on the sea. Richard modified? A white water racing kayak with plywood (as bulkheads) for a trip around the farn islands up in the north east.

Sea Kayaking has been a personal thing until now. Recently he has made the decision to become a sea kayak coach / guide,  It’s been the best decision yet. Those that know me know of my climbing achievements may think? What the. Well let me tell you, sea kayaking is mountaineering on the sea and its ace.
