UKCC Performance Coach, AWE coach and MCI

Jonny is an enthusiastic and passionate kayaker with 15 years of experience under his belt. He has paddled all over the world in countries such as: Borneo, Venezuela, New Zealand and Nepal, but still loves exploring the amazing rivers we have in Scotland.  Alongside exploring new rivers, he loves sharing his vast depth of knowledge with others, helping them to enjoy and improve their kayaking.




I feel that great coaching is built upon lots of experience and regular self reflection on my coaching delivery. As well as tons of boating across the UK, Jonny has paddled all over the world.
