As a young lad I spent every available minute out of school time either sailing, windsurfing, mountain biking, snowboarding and climbing up anything that stayed still long enough (both trees and mountains), mainly around the UK and French Alps.
Leaving school at 16 I was extremely fortunate to land my dream job as windsurfing and dinghy sailing instructor at West Kirby marine lake. I was put through my w/s inst’ qualification at Plas Menai and enjoyed 2x years teaching at W/K. This soon led to a new job at Sail + Ski in Chester as shop manager and ski technician for a further 2x years.
