Picked up my new boat just before lockdown. Great service from Black Snow Canoe Outfitters and would highly recommend them. Looking forward to being able to get back on the water.
Nice to catch up with Ant Morgan today at Stone Slalom club on the Trent 😎
Ant was collecting his new Custom Highline Broadland15 so a quick float in the demo boat to finalise kneeling thwart position before fitting one in his new boat 👍

On the 9th & 10th of November I had the pleasure of delivering a Canoe Polo Coach Training at Kingston Kayak Club, with Lesley Medina The course is only the 4th to run since it’s introduction just under 2 years ago, with just under 20 people completing the training so far.
The course brought together the content of the Core Training and focused on the application within a Canoe Polo setting.
There was a lot of polo playing experience amongst the group and lots of quality discussions, breaking down all aspects of the sport. The course looks at expanding the styles in which we may deliver a session and bringing together the thought of how representative our training is to the games we play.
Good luck to Lee, Allan, Neil, Eleri and Mohsen, on route to their assessment.
If you or your club would like to take your coaching to the next level, please get in contact. I’m happy to travel anywhere to deliver this or any other course.
Definitely worth a read if you’ve not already seen this.

It was a day to remember for Great Britain’s teams as the senior women won gold and the men silver at the 2019 ECA Canoe Polo European Championships in Coimbra, Portugal.

Had the pleasure of working with Swansea Uni for a few days this year in the Alps. Here’s a little edit they put together.
Earlier this year we help out Swansea University Canoe Club run an amazing kayaking trip to the alps!
From start to finish we battled with endless issues with the minibus but not to get us down we carried on and had a fantastic time with amazing group of students!
An amazing Showreel from them highlighting some of the best bits the Alps had to offer!
