Jo Moseley is a 57 year old single Mum living on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. She calls herself a joy encourager, beach cleaner and midlife adventurer.
In 2019 Jo became the first woman to paddleboard 162 miles coast to coast from Liverpool to Goole, picking up litter and raising money for two waterways related causes; The 2MinuteBeachClean Foundation and The Wave Project.
A film about her adventure called Brave Enough – A Journey Home to Joy by award winning film maker Frit Tam of Passion Fruit Pictures has been screened at prestigious adventure film festivals around the UK.
Jo is also the host of The Joy of SUP – the Paddleboarding Sunshine Podcast where she shares uplifting stories about the health, happiness, adventure, friendship and possibilities of stand up paddleboarding. It has just been shortlisted for the Sports Podcast Awards.
Her first book, Stand Up Paddleboarding in Great Britain – Beautiful Places to Paddleboard in England, Scotland and Wales will be published this year by Vertebrate Publishing.
Jo is a passionate advocate for the power of being on, near or in water for our mental, physical, social and emotional well-being. A paddleboarder, sea swimmer and snorkeller she hopes to encourage others to find that joy for themselves and bring more opportunities to be by the water – inland or coastal – into their busy lives.
You’ll also catch Jo on the Live Stage at 12pm on Sunday 20th with David Haze, talking about the joy of paddleboarding.
