MEET JEFF, OLLIE & DARYL
Jeff has enjoyed surfing over the years and first tried Stand up paddle boarding in Jersey many years ago. He enjoyed it so much he came home and immediately bought a paddle board. Teaching paddle boarding at Saltwater since 2017, he has recently started SUP racing.
Ollie is the king of ‘step backs’, often seen helicoptering at Chalkwell on his board. Ollie qualified as a PADI Dive Instructor teaching in Islands of Thailand, before becoming hooked on Paddle Boarding. Ollie has also recently started SUP racing and won his first competitive race. Ollie also won the inaugural Saltwater SUP 10.6 club men’s race in 2020.
