Kryssy - Freelance Coasteering Guide
Kryssy | CBA
Chief Brand Ambassador
“I started my adventure in Pembrokeshire as a Kayak instructor and soon began instructing Climbing, Surfing and Coasteering along the lush Pembrokeshire coastline.
My adventure continues now as a wood worker with Sakura Workshop creating wooden bodysurf handplanes, SUP paddles and canoe paddles.
I can be quite a rare sighting out on the water but always on hand to represent at shows and events so that Cleo and the crew don’t have to be to far from the sea for too long.”
