Our eclectic team of specialists share the same vision and ambitions, and live for what they do.


Leo got his addiction for paddling at 9 years of age, when he joined Proteus Canoe Club in Peterborough.

With her Masters degree in Psychology from The University of Edinburgh, broad experience and ability to bring order to chaos Anna is a fantastic Director of Getafix, at the same time as bringing the next generation of Getafixers into the world and trying to keep Leo’s life organised and sane. This is supported largely by her yoga teacher training with the Yoga Life Project.

With a degree in Wildlife Conservation and her love for all things wild, Honesty (or H as we know her) couldn’t help but impress us at Getafix when we met her in 2015.

A true lifestyle guru, Chris combines excellent canoe skills with working his Gipsy Cobs Paddy and Eddie, being everyone's dream grandfather and renovating his Welsh barn singlehanded.

I first met Pete when I assessed him for his BCU Five Star Award in Syphon Canyon, Soča, Slovenia when he was 21. He impressed me then as being one of the hottest prospects for both his own paddling and on how solid he was as a leader.

Jason is our first aid coach and bushcraft expert. He is a WEMSI Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician and teaches on our Basic, Advanced, and Trainers' courses which, over the past couple of years he has developed with Leo.

Getafix is delighted to welcome Ollie to the team. We have had our eye on him for quite some time and are consistently impressed by his attitude and approach, as well as the quality of his paddling and adventuring. 

Bob has spent the past 25 years working in and enjoying the outdoors, from Sea kayak guiding in Maine, to working as the Global Marketing manager at Pyranha.

Deb is an amazing paddler and all round good sort!

Nicole is a Senior REC Trainer and is in charge of our first aid courses.

Roope is from Finland and lives in Helsinki. He has extensively ventured throughout Finland, Sweden and Norway paddling and mountaineering for 25yrs.
