Cave Active Adventures

“Escape your Cave” this summer with Cave Active Adventures – Born out of a passion for the great outdoors and a genuine desire to help people escape their routine, their screen time, and of course…their cave – Cave Active Adventures offers a wide range of activities, trips and classes around Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Wing Foiling.


Phil is the heart and soul of Cave Active Adventures – experiencing the great outdoors from a very young age, he first found his passion for water through Kayaking, later on discovering Windsurfing, which fuelled his love for speed, adrenaline and genuine water sports.

In 2011, shortly before the sport exploded in popularity, Phil discovered Stand Up Paddle Boarding which completely consumed him for the years to come. He competed in the UK race scene for several years, achieving several podium places in mid-distance and tech races and a series second place in the UK SUP endurance series. Phil's passion moved to Endurance and Expedition paddling achieving many impressive milestones such as paddling around the Isle of Wight in 14.5 hours, around Mallorca in 7 days. and several trips across Scotland, with the fastest being 10hrs 40mins.

Fast forward 12 years, and now Phill wants to give back and pass on his passion for the sport through “Cave Active Adventures” – where he offers SUP lessons, zero to hero Wing Foiling courses, and most importantly a ton of exciting, instructor led Day Trips and SUP Expeditions.


Since only the best will do, Phil uses Fanatic, Duotone and ION equipment for all his expeditions, lessons and courses!

Wing Foil Lessons


Learn to Wing Foil with Phil in Chichester Harbour, a perfect location for the sport due to it’s sheltered waters and awesome flat spots for those first flights.
