Episode 10

Spike Reid, paddle board adventurer, mountain leader and action man

This week Nick and Simon chat with Spike Reid, who has just crossed England, coast to coast, by stand up paddle board. Spike is no stranger to adventure, having worked at the Royal Geographic Society for several years, which gave him the chance to rub shoulders with such legendary explorers as Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

Already a qualified mountain leader and worldwide adventurer, his encounter at the Society with Dave Cornthwaite (the Guinness world record holder for distance travelled on a paddle board) led to him to join a team who circumnavigated Martinique on stand up paddle boards.

Spike has always travelled across the world in search of adventure, however in recent years he has become a leading champion of local adventures, hence his recent crossing of England. In this fascinating chat, Spike talks through his paddle board adventures and inspires us to follow his example by adventuring locally.

He also he covers useful information for aspiring adventurers including his approach to adventure kit selection and how to keep it lightweight. Check out Spike‚Äôs video of his Martinique paddle board adventure.
