Dave is an exceptional white water kayaker and guide. Last winter he ran his 'home run' the Fairy Glen over 200 times! Apparently he's not a 'paddle bum' but a full time athlete.

Who can argue when he completed the Welsh Ironman in September 2016 and enjoys competing in full distance and sprint distance triathalons.

He has ventured to Norway and the Alps numerous times. In the Himalaya he has paddled and led the classics, and in Africa the mighty Zambezi.

Dave is also very established sea kayaker and mountaineer too. He has done some pretty impressive solo jaunts around Scotland and has a huge amount of experience guiding in Scandinavia.

He’s also the son of Dave Janes senior, who introduced Leo to junior when they paddled slalom together back in the day. This was Leo’s first experience of changing a nappy, and has cemented their friendship and working relationship ever since.

Dave is a winter ML.
