ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR: KEV BRADY
Instructor: Kev Brady
After solo paddling the Mississippi river from source to sea during the coldest winter on record, Kev fell in love with water based adventure. In September 2015 he became the first person to swim the entire 220 mile length of the River Severn and was supported by friends and family on stand-up paddle boards.
He recently paddled Sri Lanka’s longest river, The Mahaweli on a Red Paddle 13’2 Explorer SUP encountering rapids and saltwater crocodiles along the way.
“I was amazed how easily everyone picked it up, even people who had never even paddled a canoe before. There’s something special about being stood at water level and our docks is the perfect place to start.”
