Jo Moseley is the first woman to stand-up paddleboard coast-to-coast, 162 miles from Liverpool to Goole. Along her way she was litter-picking and fundraising for The Wave Project and The 2 Minute Foundation. A film was made about her adventure titled Brave Enough - A journey home to joy.
You can catch up with Jo on her podcast, The Joy of SUP or on her Instagram account, healthyhappy50.
Jo describes herself as a "joy encourager, beach cleaner and midlife adventurer", and is the author of our brilliant Stand-up Paddleboarding in Great Britain.
