“This man has spent an unhealthy length of time on the water, particularly the sea!”
Born on a boat and with a Royal Navy shellback and a mermaid for parents, Ben Edom learned to swim, row and sail by the age of three. Brought up on and beside the sea, he later worked deep-sea and as sailing and canoe/kayak instructor before race success earned him a place on the British team, with national championship wins in sprint C1 and C2 1000m.
An active surfski competitor, Ben is also a qualified British Canoeing Race Coach and Surfski Coach with lifetime of experience on the sea and boats. He has traveled the world, including working in Europe, America and Australia, where he lived and paddled surfski from the Sunshine Coast and Sydney surf beaches for 10 years.
Benjamin’s coaching philosophy:
“Each paddler is a unique individual with their own dreams and goals. My job is to facilitate their journey towards recognising, believing in, prioritising and achieving those goals, while discovering more depth and meaning in themselves and their lives.”

Anyone who comes to my home gets offered a real coffee. From Ristretto to Americano, from Late to Capuccino, I always get good reviews. Even a young Italian working as an intern said his Capuccino was “Very good!”
Unfortunately I can hardly ever drink coffee myself these days since my lifelong addiction to it has offended my kidneys – but I love the aroma of a good coffee and hugely enjoy the ritual of making it, an ancient and international tradition of hospitaly well worth fostering!
