Professional Coach of The Year 2012


"Roger Chandler is a highly qualified kayaking coach with a passion for the outdoors, and sea kayaking in particular.


In recent years Roger has started running rapid development programmes, which after short but intensive training periods mean clients are able to take part in exciting sea kayaking expeditions around the UK.


Roger is well-respected within the industry, and his passion and energy for kayaking is utterly contagious, making him very worthy of a mention in the CKUK Professional Coach of the Year category." (Canoe & Kayak Magazine)

"There are a number of wonderful things about Roger. He has a very light touch in his coaching, and he's always smiling and encouraging you to relax into the enjoyment of the day"

Tavi Murray

"And I'm probably learning more from his mentoring now, as my paddling horizons expand, than ever before. I can't count how many questions I've asked... and he's answered. Roger has the knack of making that suggestion that radically changes your thinking and moves your paddling on in leaps and bounds."

Simon Turnbull

"I've just completed a two day 4* Sea kayak training course with Roger. Having been coached by Roger in the past, I choose to do this course with Roger because I knew I would get a great deal from the course. My expectations were certainly well and truly met"

We come recommended
Simply one of the best sea kayak coaches around! He has taught me skills that have proven invaluable every time I venture out and every session under his expert guidance has been a fantastic experience for me and everyone in the group. I can't recommend Coastal Spirit enough!
