Jan Houlbrook 
Trainee Inland Open Water Leader & SUP Instructor

We’re proud to say that a Paddleboarding Adventures activity was Jan’s first proper paddleboarding experience.¬† In 2022 Jan was gifted a voucher from her family; little did they know she’d be hooked from the start. For the last 18 months Jan has lived and breathed the sport, enjoying social paddles most weekends, purchasing her own board and completing her training with British Canoe (now Paddle UK). Jan’s favourite paddles our day and multi day tours on the river Wye. Jan is our newest trainee and will spend the season shadowing sessions to gain teaching/guiding experience.
