Hi I’m Alex Cobnor’s Chief Instructor. I started my career in the outdoor industry at the age of 17 as a Trainee Instructor, at a centre in Shropshire, my home county. I stayed there for nearly 7 years, building my qualifications and experience to become their Senior Instructor. During that time I managed 2 seasons in Nepal working as a safety kayaker on river rafting expeditions. I came to Cobnor four years ago as an instructor, then a senior instructor and even tried my hand at a bit of centre maintenance, before becoming Chief Instructor. You could say white water kayaking was a huge passion of mine. Although now I prefer a slow canoe around the local harbours with my wife and two dogs. I like to be outside in my spare time so if I’m not on the water, I'll be out exploring the countryside, camping, walking with my dogs, or cycling on the roads around Hampshire and West Sussex.
