About Me


To travel the world kayaking and surfing and meeting new interesting people.


i have always been into sports and outdoor pursuits and i joined the royal marines commandos when i was 18 after only a year and a half i got injured doing a training exercise and was medically discharged. i had reconstructive surgery on my ankle to have my ligaments replaced (gross i know lol).
after i recovered i went and did some training courses so that i could become an adventure training instructor and have been working at an outdoor centre for the last year and now i have the experience i am wanting to get out and travel.
im a easy going guy who likes a good laugh and im more than happy to try new things. im interested in meeting like minded people who can show me how the real side of the places im visiting rather than the usual touristy routes.
i have a one way ticket to new zealand and a one year holiday working visa i am leaving with my friend cal and we have left everything else to what happens on the day so no plan.
im pretty new to this couch surfing so any advice that anyone can give me i would be more than grateful.
