Susie Gillepsie

(Assistant Instructor)

Susie loves nothing better than helping people discover the fabulous coastline, river estuaries and natural world here in her South Devon backyard.


Over the last 10 years Susie and her husband David, who also works with us as a guide (see above), have enjoyed many Sea kayaking paddling adventures in South West England, Scotland, the Outer Hebrides and Anglesey as well as further a field in Greece, Croatia and Nova Scotia. They are often found during the winter months paddling in the warm waters of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.

More about Susie 

Susie and David run weaving workshop set in a 15th century FarmHouse orchard. They grow flax from seed in their orchard which they harvest and process for Susie to hand spin into linen. They then colour the hanks of linen using natural dyes and Susie weaves them into her contemporary woven linen artwork and cushions.


Susie is a guiding assistant with many years experience Sea kayaking around the South Devon Coastline.
