NICK THORN

9 x British Surf Iron Man & long distance swimmer, SUP paddler & charity fundraiser

Nick Thorn has experienced a wide variety of adventures at home and abroad. He has swum to Lundy Island, competed in extreme environments, and patrolled beaches all over the world as a professional beach lifeguard. But, most important of all, he keeps our pupils safe during the Adventure Society beach activities. Nick will encourage pupils to have their own adventures in the South West, encouraging them to learn the skills they need to keep themselves and their buddies safe.

 

 

 

NATALIE CORDON

A leap of Faith

Nat has been paddling extreme rivers at home and abroad for the last 6 years. Her quest for adventure has taken her to South America, India, and all over Europe but also to Scotland and Devon! Although paddle sports can be extreme, Nat is a great advocate of ‘doorstep adventures’ and aims to inspire our young adventurers to take up paddle sports in the South West and to explore this unique part of the world

 

 RICHARD HATHWAY

Trekking all over the world

Richard Hathway, as an aspirant International Mountain Leader, will aim to inspire young people that they have a world of non-technical walking at their feet.
