Owner : Richard Marsh - An introduction to the new owner
I'm sure many of you already know me, but for those that don't "Hello". Having moved to Cornwall in the late 1970's, I soon fell in love with ocean, and being active in it on it! It was my close friend Robin Hobson owner of Coverack Windsurfing that set on my path that has lead me to Westcountry Watersports. A journey that has enabled me to visit some great watersport venues and meet some wonderful people around the world, whilst working on the Windsurfing World Tour. For the past ten years I have been working or as an agent for many leading watersports produces, many of which are available here in Westcountry, and more recently I have become heavily involved with British Stand Up Paddleboard Association with its development and promotion of the sport. I also organise the BSUPA Championships held at Watergate Bay, which some of you might have seen or come over too.
When Peter first spoke to me about becoming more involved with WCWS, and then take it over, I didn't have to think about it for to long. A business in an industry I already work in and one in a such a beautiful location, and in Cornwall. It ticked all the right boxes.
Although Peter has retired from the business we will be working together on a few projects and he will become the beach and water arm of WCWS. I am very much looking forward to working on some water activities based more around the shop here in Mylor, sup as SUP club.
Finally I feel very honoured to be entrusted with Westcountry Watersports, its been around for over twenty years, and been a part of many of our lives as the premiere place to go in Cornwall for all your watersports needs. That is will remain my core belief and I hope to share this along with some fun times with you all over the coming months.
