Why I love to SUP and how I discovered it…
I was first Introduced to SUP by Bertrand Van Der Berg at a Kayaking festival in South Africa. I thought it looked pretty ridiculous and decided to give the whitewater SUP race a go as a joke….needless to say I didn’t do very well. About a year and a half later I attended another kayaking festival in South Africa and this time I couldnt kayak becasue of injury so I decided again to enter the SUP race as a joke. Again….failed dismally.

3 months later somehow I found myself doing the First Descent of the Zambezi Rapids on a SUP…not sure how it happened but it was there that something snapped and I fell in love with it. Seeing my home river with new eyes and a completely different perspective.

The body of water you’ll most likely find me on…
Zambezi River

Which boards I’m riding? Which one is my favorite? …
Hala Atcha

My next dream paddling adventure is…
I would like to take my SUP around South Africa and the White Nile

What I do when I am not paddling?
Climb, Paraglide, Teach Survival Courses, Reptile Conservation and relocation…..this list is way too long and best seen on my website
