Poole, Dorset. Sam’s smooth style, expertise, and badger obsession stand out within the stand up paddleboarding movement. What started as a way of getting to work has become one of his life’s passions, and alongside windsurfing. Constantly on the water since he was fourteen, Sam competed internationally in rowing, before focusing his relentless energy on instructing windsurfing and then SUP. In 2013 Sam became the first ever person to complete the SUP Eleven Cities Tour on an inflatable board, and recently competed at the Battle of the Paddle in California where he was the first over the line on an inflatable board.
