Louise Wiggins

(Assistant Instructor)

Lou loves nothing more than to be out on the water. With 15 years of kayaking experience which has taken her to paddle across the UK and abroad, she has enjoyed multiple trips to Scotland, Slovenia and the French Alps. In fact, she now only goes on kayaking holidays! For Lou, kayaking is a year-round sport and after sea kayaking all spring and summer, she paddles whitewater through the winter.

She says, “it’s always a joy to be assisting Ben or any one of his super coaches on a SKD trip. As with all of my kayaking days, there’s invariably a moment when the thought crosses my mind, “there’s nowhere I’d rather be!” “ When she’s not in a kayak, Lou is a professional classical musician.
