After some prompting from a friend he participated in his first Paddle Canada skills course in 2007. To say that experience ignited a passion for sea kayaking would be an understatement. Today he enjoys everything from day and multi- day trips to surfing at his favourite surf spot: Point Michaud in Richmond County, Cape Breton. Allan is a firm believer in skill development taking every opportunity to learn from more experienced kayakers and kayak coaches. He is a Level 1 Paddle Canada Coach and has earned a Level 3 Sea Kayak Skill designation. Right now he is working toward his Level 2 Sea Kayak coaching certification.
In addition to his passion for paddling, he brings to Canoe Kayak Nova Scotia experience in the private, not- for- profit and social enterprise sectors with a focus on financial management.
Allan looks forward to working hard for CKNS members.
