Episode 055 is live! In this one I chatted to one of my dearest and wisest friends, @sianyh13. Sian is a health coach, a yoga instructor, a mum, a wife and a snowboarder. –


But what makes Sian unique is her unapologetically positive and joyful take on life, and her perspective on the issues we’re all dealing with, whether we like to admit it or not. I described her as a health coach but that doesn’t really do justice to what she does, which is help people understand why they are struggling to cope with life, either physically or mentally. What Sian does is bridge the gap been our two modern realities – the Instagram-friendly front we put on for the world; and the real stuff that’s going on behind this veil, where everyone is struggling, we’re all pretending we’re not and nobody is talking about it. –


As somebody who is actually tackling this big unsaid, her perspective is unique and valuable, and that’s why I wanted to get her on the podcast and why I would implore you to check out this episode. Sian may not have the wider profile of some of my other guests but she’s as interesting and insightful as anybody else I’ve had on there as you’ll discover.



So yep – some weighty themes in this one, although hopefully delivered with the lightness of touch that is the hallmark of every brilliant conversation I have with Sian. Huge thanks for being such a good sport, and to @melodyskyphotography for the brilliant photos that I’ve used for this one. Link in bio to have a listen ☝️

Remembering a trip of a lifetime I took five years ago with @ed__leigh_ , @capefinn, @theotherstuartwells, @valtterihirvonen and @maher.tim. We travelled round the South Island of NZ in a couple of campers and surfed, snowboarded and skated as we went. This is me and Ed on a dawn surf check at Kaikoura before one of the more memorable surfs of my life. –

Irish omnibus part 2!
Yep, next week I am heading back to Ireland with my friend and collaborator @owenmadeup. I’ve been invited to give a talk at the forthcoming @swellsligo event by @aoifep – Big thanks for that Aoife.
And I’m also going to take the opportunity to try and tick off another round of podcasts for a second Irish omnibus.
On the hitlist so far – @seamusmcgoldrick, but who else should I speak to for the show while I’m over there?
Let me know 👇
