He moved from the UK to California to be with Gina and founded River and Ocean, a Sales and Customer Service Agency within the watersports industry and has represented such established lines as Valley Sea Kayaks, Kokatat Watersports Wear, Pyranha, P&H Sea Kayaks and Jackson Kayak. Sean’s focus now is on paddlesports coaching and spending more time at home with Gina and their kids.
In 2004 he completed a childhood dream by completing the first solo circumnavigation of the UK and Ireland. This six month, 4,500 mile journey is the longest kayak journey ever undertaken in British waters and the first ever to include all of the inhabited islands.
Featured as one of Canoe & Kayak Magazine’s Heroes, Sean has had articles published in Canoeist, Sea Kayaker, Wavelength and Canoe & Kayak, Ocean Paddler and The Paddler magazines. Considered one of the world’s leading ocean paddlers, he enjoys nothing more than sharing his passion for the ocean with others, through his writing and teaching.
