Jim started paddling in any old kayak he could muster during the school holidays. He has since paddled (and swum) many of the exciting white water rivers of England, Scotland and Wales, as well as many of those in the French Alps.
A passion for sea kayaking combined with an interest in writing and photography, brought about the first comprehensive Guidebook to the Welsh coast, for sea kayakers.
The Book is called 'Welsh Sea Kayaking' and was published in September 2006 by Pesda Press.
More recently Jim has been working on another guidebook to be entitled 'Northern England & the Isle of Man', which will follow a similar format to 'Welsh Sea Kayaking' and will be published in spring 2011.
