In episode 23 we speak with Nick Ayers, a competitive paddleboarder from the East Coast of Britain. Nick shares his life growing up on the Suffolk coast and surfing, surf livesaving, and paddling in the North Sea. We hear Nick's stories of paddling the English Channel, competing in the Great Glen Way race where he downwinded Loch Ness in 35 knot wind and icy cold water, and his stoke for being a member of the British national paddleboard team set to compete in China in fall of 2018. Nick provides a great perspective on his ocean life in the rural area of England and his passion for traveling and pursuing waves.
Thanks for sharing Nick's ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of him on Instagram and Facebook pages. You can also find good stuff on the ThisOceanLife.TV Instagram and Facebook pages. We are also on Twitter ranting about anything cool happening in the ocean.
