Phil is the owner of Sea Kayaking Anglesey. He has lived and coached sea kayaking on Anglesey for the last ten years. He is a skilled paddler, and his abilities in a boat are matched by his ability to teach others effectively with his fun and friendly manner.
Phil regularly attends symposiums, events and expeditions around the UK and abroad but believes Anglesey to be the best place in the world to coach sea kayaking. With his in depth knowledge of the local areas he is always keen to select a trip that will best suit your wants and needs, and with a degree in Zoology he knows a bit about the local wildlife too.
Phil's expeditions have taken him from the Greenland in the Arctic to the Madagascar on the Equator and most notably a record breaking circumnavigation of Great Britain in 80 days. He is a BCU Level Five Coach and a Sea Kayaking UK, Celtic Paddles and Palm sponsored paddler.
Stuart started paddling at the age of 15, doing it all from sea kayaking, white water, canoeing and wave ski, but it was when he chose to study Outdoor Education that he began to consider it as a full time career.
In May 2012, Stuart, along with a friend and his brother, set off from their hometown of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea in their sea kayaks. They turned left and kept going until they returned back 2,500 miles and 96 days later.
Stuart is the youngest sea kayaker to have circumnavigated Great Britain and part of the only team to have done it anti clockwise. He is a BCU Five Star Sea Kayak Leader, a BCU | UKCC Level Two Coach and a Celtic Paddles and Sea Kayaking UK sponsored paddler.
