Kyle discovered his love for the outdoors after training in the Royal Marines, and is today qualified to coach across multiple adventure sports.

Kyle has worked in the outdoor industry for over 13 years, been on expedition to 5 continents to climb mountains and paddle rivers all before founding Original Wild.

He still lives in Bath and loves to introduce new travellers to the South West.

These sessions run every Wednesday & Friday evening from 6pm – 7:30pm. (Start times may vary during the shoulder months). This time slot gives the large majority of our customers a chance to finish work, get changed and meet us at Bath Riverside for some fun on the water!

Due to the growing popularity of our ‘Try’ sessions, you can expect to meet lots of awesome people during the evening. On top of that, and if the weathers good, you can expect some pretty epic golden-hour sunsets too!

At Original Wild we stock tandem kayaks so don’t worry if you’re booking solo, we can team you up with a fellow kayak enthusiast. What a way to meet new people with similar interests!

”We had a lovely time time experiencing Bath from a different perspective and chatting along the way.
It was great being able to kayak right up to the Weir and walk along it. Along the way different things were pointed out to us that we’d never have known about before, very interesting and will definitely be recommending to friends.”.
