Sponsors – current – and how to apply

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the companies who have helped with sponsorship in my many varied adventures over the years, and to welcome those who would like to help me in my future adventures.

Palm Equipment Europe took me on as a team ambassador in 2015 and supported me with some awesome kit during my SUP years, and are continuing to support me through my upcoming prone boarding adventures.

Aquasports International came on board in 2021 with help in buying kit for my new prone board.

WHASUP also came on board in 2021, giving me a great deal on an awesome customised, protective bag for my new prone board.

Red Paddle Co also supported me through my SUP years, (as well as with one or two things I have planned for 2021/22).

Zen8 came on board, at the end of 2020, to help me with my training for my upcoming prone board adventures.

Previous sponsors have included Alpacka Raft and Walker’s Shortbread who helped with one-off adventures, and OceanSource and SBS boards who gave me one-off discounts on kit.

In return, I have showcased their brands on relevant write-ups on this sports blog, newspaper and magazine articles, social media, speaking events, and several short films that have been shown at events across the UK, spreading the word of their support.  Some sponsors have also used some of my photographs and articles in their own promotional products.

If you would like to sponsor me, please get in touch through the Contact page.


These sponsors have been a tremendous help in supplying kit and support for my challenges.
