I was born on 19/04/83 in Empangeni on the KwaZulu Natal North coast to Mother Bambi Edwina May Barber and Father Mark Alexander Lewin. I was brought up in Durban and haven’t left, I love it here. I played almost all sports through school but only started paddling a K1 at 15 years and then progressed to Surfski racing at 18 when I left school. I currently race as a semi pro athlete and compete in events all over the world. I try get to as many international surfski races I can afford.
I mostly live a life of passion for paddling and the sea. This blog aims to share my story through words, pictures and video that take you the viewer into my life as a paddler. Join me on an adventure. Hope you enjoy!
