Alison Holvey
SUP Instructor & Inland Open Water Leader
Alison had her first introduction to paddle boarding in 2020, after seeing paddlers on the sea whilst holidaying on the Isle of Wight. One lesson, and she was hooked, paddling 12 months of the year come rain or shine! She quickly qualified with British Canoe, (now Paddle UK) as a SUP Instructor and Inland Open Water Leader. Spending much of her time co-leading social paddles on her local waterways.  Alison’s happy place is on the water, she loves to share this passion with new paddlers, helping them progress progress from those first wobbly moments to heading out on their first adventure tour.
