About us

Our Philosophy

“To inspire people to live differently!”

We are inspired by nature

Nature provides a way to reconnect with ourselves and put things into perspective. We appreciate its beauty and its power, feeling responsible to protect it. Whenever possible we choose the options that have the least negative impact to our environment.

We aspire to live simply

Fulfillment does not come from things we buy or the time we spend on social media but from simple genuine interactions with people and nature. We enjoy outdoor adventures, big and small, alone, with friends or family.

We build a friendly and welcoming place

People are very important to us. We want to inspire with positivity and enthusiasm. With Hightide @ the Beach we want to offer a place where you can recharge, relax and feel good.

We are a team of equals

Each of our team members plays a vital role in Hightide. Not one person or a single job is more important than the other. We take pride and ownership in what we do. We are on a journey to have a more fulfilling life and we believe in self-reflection, self-awareness, being humble and true to ourselves. We are shaping a great place to work and play and every single one of us plays a role in that.

Our Coaching Philosophy

At hightide we believe in coaching the individual. On our courses, we take people from where they are at and work towards what people want to achieve.

For some this might be gaining confidence to paddle and enjoy being out in nature, for others it means becoming more efficient in order to paddle expeditions or long distances. It could also mean developing the know how to venture out on the Sea or gaining the skills to play on rivers, around the rocks or in the surf.

Whatever your aim, with our wide experience on the ocean and our detailed knowledge of what makes up sea kayaking, we can help you achieve your goals and bring you forward. All our coaches come from a Sea Kayaking background, have qualifications on the Sea and are passionate not only about paddling but also coaching. We’ve spent years learning what really makes a difference in our sport and are committed to delivering it in the most effective way by making you feel the learning!

When you come to a course with hightide you’ll go away with a better understanding of how to improve and have a structure to remember what you have learnt. We believe our job is to set the conditions for the learning to happen so that when you go home it doesn’t stop.
