  • Identity verified
Born in South Africa I've always had a passion for outdoors, sharing experiences with friends and the memories of those times. I've lived and worked all over the world delivering a variety of adventure activity experiences.

Founding and delivering adventure activity experiences through Cornish Wave is a continuous culmination of these skills, experiences and passions gained over the years. I love nothing more than being active around water whether it be rivers, lakes or the ocean.

The variety of ways you can enjoy being in it, on it or simply next to always fills me with excitement​.
