Name: Luke

Position: Manager


Luke started working for Brighton Canoes in early 2005 as a part time sales advisor whilst studying at University in Brighton. Since then he has climbed the ladder to the dizzy heights of Manager of Brighton Canoes. Luke started kayaking when he was elevens years old at the nearby Cuckmere Valley Canoe Club which he now helps to run and coach.

Luke’s favourite past time is whitewater kayaking which has taken him on numerous trips to Wales, Dartmoor & the Alps. However, given Sussex’s distinct lack of whitewater Luke can also be seen getting a local kayak fix touring the coastline in a sea kayak and has been known to take the odd mackerel fishing trip in one of the shops various angling sit-on-top demos.
