Brian Robinson



Brian has worked in the outdoors now since 2006, which has took him to some of the country's most stunning areas such as Devon, Wales, Jersey and the Lake District. He spends most of his spare time climbing, however he does enjoy a bit of surfing, kayaking and canoeing on the lake with a BBQ and good friends. His motivations come not just from having a blast himself but wanting to share these experiences with others. "I want to encourage them to go and get stuck in with their mates and enjoy a lifetime of adventure."
