Our Story

“Chase the Water” sprang from the personal journey of our founder, Emma Moore, a once water-fearful individual who transformed into a dedicated water sports enthusiast.

Overcoming her fear in her late thirties, Emma embraced swimming through the Total Immersion Method and levelled up her skills with professional lessons from Swim England.

She went on to learn surfing in Ireland under the guidance of champion surfer, John McCarthy, which led to her first surfing adventure in Vancouver Island, Canada, igniting her passion for water sports.

Emma’s journey has seen her travel the globe, from white water rafting in British Columbia to windsurfing in the calm lakes of Norfolk. Today, she continues her pursuit of water thrill in surfing, windsurfing, swimming, and paddleboarding, with an ambition to explore as many water adventure destinations as possible.

Chase The Water exists so others can benefit from firsthand experiences, honest advice, and expert knowledge from those who get on their swimming gear and chase the water.
