Kev started rock climbing in 1996 as a method to maintain some fitness levels for his wakeboarding when the cable ski parks were closed in winter. He took up teaching the sport in 2007 and it is now one of his main activities. Kev has climbed in several regions of the world including New Zealand, South Africa, Europe and the United Kingdom. Kev was also the rock climbing instructor for the TV Superstars series screened on Channel 5 in 2008. As well as climbing, Kev is a PADI certified assistant diving instructor and has racked up over 250 dives in many of the regions of the world including the Great Barrier reef, Red Sea, Florida and UK waters. Kev is also a keen cycler and has travelled through Europe by bike completing the London to Paris challenge in 2008.
