I’m Josh and I work weekends and through the holidays both in the shop store and on the water as kayak, sup and coasteering guide. I am 17 and am currently studying A-levels at Whitley bay high school. Being a local boy, outside of work and school, I spend a lot of time in the water on all sorts of crafts ranging from sit skis to surfboards, playing in the surf or just going for a paddle. I have recently completed a host of coaching qualifications and courses and last year, I contended in the annual surf kayak competition and took first place in the beginner group.
