Ben Fothergill was born and raised in the wild west of Wales. From a young age he has been out adventuring with family and friends. He has spent most of his life in or on the sea and playing in the mountains and rivers of this amazing country.
Ben has worked in Pembrokeshire for the last 5 years as an adventure guide for numerous adventure providers.
Alongside his passion for sharing with others the wonders of the outdoors Ben has continued to work self-employed as an ecological surveyor and studied Ocean Science for an undergraduate degree.
Ben currently holds his 5 star sea kayak leadership award and is currently working his way through the coaching awards to gain his Jedi status (like Nige and Martin).
Ben as paddled and adventured his way around parts of the U.K. and further afield to New Zealand, the Seychelles, Maldives, United states, South Pacific and Greenland.
In his spare time he’s mostly found surfing around the U.K’s wild coastline or hitting the crags and mountains with his adventure buddy/wife Rachel.
It’s great to have Ben on board and looking forward to a season with a little less rain !
