What's your story?

I started boating a little at college in 2006, had more of an interest in kayaking until started working for PGL in the Ardeche. Then my main focus moved to Open Canoeing. The idea of packing up days’ worth of kit and paddling with friends and camping was very appealing to me. I have done many trips in the Alps, Scotland, North and South Wales and England bivi’ing wild or finding some amazing campsites. All of this I have done mainly working with PGL.
