Episode 19, Fi and James Corfe
This week we chatted to Fi and James Corfe. These two picked up paddling and ran with it! From their beginnings around the Isle of Man, to circumnavigation of both islands of New Zealand and now rounding Cape Horn, they've been pushing their boundaries as far as possible.
Lovers of type two fun, Fi and James are always looking for new expeditions and to explore new places. They're willing to endure all the hardships that the environment can throw at them in order to experience moments of bliss in places seldom visited by human beings!
Episode 18, Lowri Davies
This week we chatted with Lowri from FlowFree coaching. As a professional kayak coach and freestyle guru, Lowri's passion is playing on the river. She's competed at the top level in freestyle kayaking and has paddled some of the biggest volume rivers in the world, including thousands of laps on her local run, the Dee-bezi.
Lowri chatted about her love of making rivers playful and how she really wants to maximise every day on the water. If you're not having enough fun, maybe try getting in touch and ask her to show you how to play!
Episode 17, Jamie and Kyle
This week on the podcast, we chatted with Jamie and Kyle, two young, up and coming white water kayakers. The two lads have both had their plans upturned and their lives changed by the pandemic and we chatted about how this has changed their view on paddling both personally and professionally.
It was great to chat to some folks who are fresh into the outdoors, and who are super stoked on boating! As usual we cover how they got into the sport, and see just how far they've pushed themselves in the past couple of years. We also talk fears, uncertainty and aspirations.
You can find Jamie at @jamandhiscam on Instagram
Kyle is @kr.kylerodger on instagram, and https://youtube.com/channel/UCM-j_0k8tvFE18ufycxCCsQ for his youtube channel.
Episode 16, Kenya's canoe slalom team, Sammy and Daniel
This week we're chatting with Sammy and Daniel, two of Kenya's canoe slalom team.
They were recently out in Spain competing in the African qualifiers for Tokyo Olympics and are both keen paddlers of white water and slalom. We chatted Spain, cold water, covid, learning to paddle and their developmental aspirations for the local community.
Growing up on the banks of the river Tana, Sammy and Daniel have spent their lives in and around the water. They want to keep sharing their love of white water and inspire a new generation to take up running rivers and chasing sticks.
Episode 15, Time to start thinking about getting oot!

This is a great list of varied, though mainly Scottish, paddling providers, all of who will offer you a slightly different, but awesome experience.
This isn't and extensive list there's loads more out there this is just the folks that got back to us.
