SwimTrek Miles


Swim history before SwimTrek My deep connection with the ocean began as a young kid growing up on the beaches of Durban, South Africa. Endless summers spent surfing or being hurled about in the shore break has left an indelible mark on me and as a result I have spent most of my life either in the sea or on it. I work as a RNLI beach lifeguard as well as operating a water sports adventure company, based in Cornwall. Locations guided on Cornwall, Outer Hebrides and Greece Cyclades. Most memorable swim moment There’s a lighthouse in Cornwall which has a cave that runs through it. Only accessible at spring low tides, it’s home to packs of seals, almost pitch black with a very small underwater hole as an exit. To return to the shore you have to beat the racing tide or be swept down the coast…epic!!! Top swimming tip Relax and enjoy the ride. Interesting fact about you If I could surf everyday, I would.
