A keen hiker, cold water dipper and beach cleaner, Jo credits the outdoors with helping her navigate grief, loss, the menopause and empty nesting. She is an OS Champion and ambassador for the Seaful charity.

A single mum of two grown up sons Jo has a particular interest in how being active in nature can help us age happily and healthily. She believes you’re never too old for an adventure and it’s not too late to make a difference.

In summer 2021, Jo set off with her board Grace, named after the RNLI heroine Grace Darling, to research beautiful places to SUP. From Loch Ness to the Lizard Peninsula, Ullswater to Wells Next The Sea and Afon Teifi to the Regent’s Canal. She slept on her board under the stars, saw dolphins, seals and huge jellyfish and paddled at sunrise and sunset. In her book, she shares stories of the beautiful places she visited, the kindness of the SUP community and helpful tips on safety, starting and progressing in SUP.
