A multiple world champion and world #1 stand up paddler for years on end, you’ll find this adventure hunter just as at home on bikes, skiing, surfing, hiking, running trails, getting bendy on yoga mat and forging the new frontiers of water sports with a wing and a foil as she is working for some of the most well known brands in the world.
Hailing from the idyllic mountain resort of Lake Wanaka in the heart of New Zealand’s Southern Alps, Annabel has always made the most of what ever she has found on her back doorstep be it snow, mountains, rivers, oceans or even the concrete jungles of some of the biggest cities in the world. With an inner drive to find new frontiers, this jack-of-all trades versatility of brains and heart allows her to forge a unique trajectory combining talent, experience and passion alike.
From coaching and mentoring, to learning new things Annabel has always had a habit of being a few steps ahead of what becomes the next big thing thanks to her ability to adapt, evolve and remain calm under pressure.
A few things will always remain consistent – the drive to get out and do, to seek challenge and be relentless in the pursuit of excellence.
Personally and professionally, Annabel has forged and continues to forge a path less followed.
