Dave Rossetter
Dave simply loves paddling, whatever the discipline and after working for centres for many years he finally set up his own canoe shop and coaching business called Standing Waves based in Sterling, alongside his wife Susan and his mother-in-law Canoe & Kayak Coach Dave Rossiter of Standing WavesRena. Dave’s always looking for the next adventure and his enthusiasm and warmth makes him an inspirational coach out on the water. Dave also continues to be involved with the BCU in the developments and reviews of the new awards, and this still sees him commit a huge amount of time to help with all levels of the coaching scheme including design and implementation of new awards as well as expertise within the disciplines. 

Here's a great film of Dave in action in his open canoe by Cackle TV:
