I’m Nicky, i’m a kayaker, mainly a freestyle kayaker, I love to compete and to push myself to see what is physically possible in a boat, kayaking has taken me all over the world and to places you wouldn’t otherwise see, thats one off the main reasons I love my sport. After a long period off injury i’ve been inspired to discover what else there is to offer, having spent time this year taking to a sea kayak for the 1st time, running a marathon, skiing and climbing, and adventuring from my own front door, alongside continuing to push myself in my boat. Later in 2017 i’m lucky enough have the opportunity to travel to South America to compete in the world championships in Argentina.
Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats (Kenneth Grahame, Wind in the willows)
