Meet the team!
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!

Great day E-mountainbiking in and around Porlock. Great quality bikes and trails which are easy to find. Easy and simple pick up and drop off.
Had a fantastic time last Monday morning sea kayaking with Dan and Jo. After a comprehensive briefing, we paddled along the coast from Porlock Wier learning how to have fun in winds and waves. Then enjoyed my first experience of kayak polo - book on to find out what a blast that is! I recommend this highly - Dan runs an extremely well thought out session to fit the group. Thanks so much!
Hired a Scott strike E-bike for the day. Despite not having my normal equipment, I was provided with helmet, gloves, rucksack, lock, pump, multi tool, spare tubes as well as maps of the area and suggested routes. Had a brilliant day exploring the hills, some lovely single track and some fun downhills. The bike managed around 20 miles with 4000ft of climbing and was one of the best days out I’ve had for a while. My first time riding an E-bike couldn’t have been better.
Support from Dan and the team was excellent and friendly.
