Mountain Biking on Exmoor

Dan - Director

Mountain Biking is definitely Dan's main passion, though he will be found delivering all the activities on offer. As much as Dan would like to be out delivering activities, he has to spend more and more time on administrative duties!

Ben - Chief Instructor

Ben is a super keen Surfer and paddleboarder, having paddled around Menorca last year! You're likely to meet Ben, as he heads up most of our activity days and events.

Joe - Instructor

Joe is an avid Mountain Biker and keen White Water Kayaker. Originally from Exmoor, Joe is currently based in the Lake District where he is studying for an Outdoor Degree!

  •   We booked a sea kayaking morning with Ben and Dan. They were very professional and informative and we had a fantastic morning kayaking. None of us in my group were particularly experienced kayakers but they looked after us and taught us some basic moves out...More

  •   We had a fabulous time kayaking along the coast from Porlock Weir. We were all beginners. Dan was a great and calm instructor. Very patient with our old mum who was amusingly useless and had to be towed along 🙂 We would definitely recommend and we want to do it again.

      We had a brilliant time learning how to SUP in the harbour. They were helpful, professional and patient with such a big group of varying abilities. We did SUP races in groups which was fun, and then had a chance to do kayaking afterwards. All our equipment was provided and the communication on email in advance was brilliant. I can’t recommend these guys enough. Thank you.
