Dave Kohn-Hollins – Director and Head Coach



Dave Profile

Dave has lived and paddled all over the UK but now calls North Wales home. He started paddling when he was at school and began coaching whilst at University. He has worked coaching and guiding all over the UK, Europe and in Chile. Starting from his first paddling trip abroad in Spain, he developed a passion for travel and exploration. His travels have so far taken in all of the great European white water destinations as well as trips to Chile, Argentina, New Zealand and Indonesia, and expeditions to Colombia and Tajikistan. When not working or off on expedition, Dave also coaches as a volunteer for Colwyn Bay Canoe Club and competes in white water extreme races as part of Team Pyranha.



River Flair uses only a small, select group of freelance coaches, who are experts in their fields, to staff our courses.

We pride ourselves in delivering the best courses that we can and that ethos is shared by everyone we work with.
