Two years after being registered blind, at the age of 29, Dean did a charity tandem skydive which changed his life.
Since then he has notched up over 100 activities around the world, ranging from adventure racing to zorbing, and set almost 25 world firsts in activities ranging from open-water swimming to stand up paddle-boarding.
So, for the 2nd year, the SUP 11 City Tour didn’t go to plan. With a severe case of Plantar Fasciitis, (still causing pain 3 months later), it is with sadness that I have decided I won’t be making a 3rd attempt in 2019.
Instead, in 2019 I will be mixing things up, with several adventures already planned. (Some SUP, some non-SUP.)

A very chilly prone on Loch Faskally, with the water, (in places), dropping below 4 degrees. The tingling in the palm of my hands, brought on by the cold water, was still there 4 hours after I got home!! But, it was great to be back on the water after a forced break by my physio.
Cold, wet, and lovin’ it!!
Thanks to Piotr (Outdoor Explore) for the lift and company en route. Read more…
Having taken on almost 100 challenges around the world and set over 25 world firsts, Dean has a large repertoire to draw upon. Whether it be talking about becoming the first person to abseil the UK’s highest waterfall, or swim the UK’s highest loch, or being the first registered blind person to stand up paddle-board from the Scilly Isles to Cornwall, or bungee jump from a helicopter, Dean has many experiences to share.
