Darren Sherwood

” I really enjoy understanding how different people learn both in a classroom setting and of course, outside. Passing on knowledge, based on experiences and seeing others use, adapt and make it their own is why I continue to develop myself both personally and professionally.”

“A perfect day out would involve endless, empty waves, white water, boats, boards, bikes, good friends and a good pub.”

Darren is a qualified teacher and worked for nearly ten years in schools and sixth form colleges in the South and South West before taking the plunge and setting up Channel Training with Jim back in 2011. Darren has a genuine passion for the outdoors and is a self-confessed paddling addict, spending a large amount of his professional time in boats and on SUP’s and nearly all of his personal time paddling with friends and searching out empty breaks to surf on his SUP.
