TOM COURT – PRO KITESURFER & FREE-RIDE ATHLETE

I am a UK based professional kitesurfer and free-ride athlete. I have sailed all my life and pushing the level of the sports that I do both on and off the water is my main motivation, completing extreme challenges and searching out new adventures as I go!

What is your biggest fear?
After suffering some serious injuries in the past, my biggest fear is not being able to do the sports that I love!

What is the biggest barrier you would like to overcome?
My next challenge is to wing foil around the Isle of Wight which is over 70 miles. For me, the biggest challenge is just the next one to be done, there are always barriers to overcome!

What is your biggest achievement?
Winning the UK kitesurfing championship was a big one and becoming one of the top 10 kitesurfers in the world, competing in over 20 different countries. I’ve also helped develop some of the products that have made kitesurfing a better sport which has been really exciting. But I think my biggest achievement is that I’ve been able to make a lifestyle out of the sport I love!

What are your goals for 2021?
My goals for this season are simply to complete my new challenges. I have just kitesurfed 500km through the Sahara Desert which was incredible. Next up is an RTI wing foil project with the island sailing club, and then I want to develop my YouTube channel and make kitesurfing more relevant as a sport in the UK.

What inspires you to FEAR LESS DO MORE?
The knowledge that fear is the single biggest motivation you can have in life. If you are never afraid, you haven’t found the edge of what is possible yet! The adrenaline also keeps me coming back.

Which AW21 Musto product is your favourite?
The Evolution PrimaLoft® Parka. It’s incredibly warm, comfortable and provides fantastic protection but is really light. Perfect for adventures on the go.

Why is pushing out of your comfort zone important to you?
On the other side of discomfort, comes glory… or just a nice sofa!! For me pushing myself outside my comfort zone is super important, it brings me closer to life and puts everything into perspective. How it should be!

PHOEBE SNEDDON – DOCTOR & ADVENTURE CYCLIST

I work in paediatric emergency medicine treating everything from the very sickest children to minor injuries. Outside of work I use my bike to transport me away from the stress and strain of what is often a physical and emotionally taxing job. I spend my time encouraging more women to ride bikes and step off the beaten track and outside of their comfort zones. All too often women are lost to the world of the outdoors and adventure after having children and I have set out to try and prove that this doesn't need to be the case.

What is your biggest fear?
I would never consider myself to be brave and as a doctor I would be described as being cautious. I have many fears, but I think my biggest fear would be not making the most of my life. I have tried to use my drive for adventure to overcome my fears, particularly of settling into a boring and mundane routine. Adventures don't have to be wild and extreme, they just have to be different to your everyday - whatever that may be.

What is the biggest barrier you have had to overcome?
My biggest barrier is probably myself. I am my own worst enemy sometimes and I am very quick to tell myself - "you'd never be able to do that". I love to prove myself wrong and I hope that if I do it enough times that voice will gradually rescind. I am a work in progress.

What is your greatest achievement?
Outside of work my biggest achievement was riding 200miles off road in 24hours to raise money for a dear friend who sustained a life changing spinal injury. It was an exceptionally difficult ride and it was not something I thought I would be capable of doing. But I had superb support and my motivation to keep going proved very strong.

Which AW21 Musto product was your favourite?
The Women’s Marina Roll Neck Knit. It’s unbelievably soft, stylish and warm. I could wear it all day everyday during Autumn and Winter.

What are your goals for 2021?
2021 has been a difficult year with many of my planned events cancelled. As someone who has worked throughout the pandemic in the NHS I have used 2021 to try and reset and have been enjoying rides closer to home and introducing my daughter to the joys of bike packing. I am racing Scotduro this month which is a 200mile off road unsupported race from Inverness to Glasgow. I hope to improve upon my performance in 2019 now that I have a little more experience under my belt.

What inspires you to FEAR LESS DO MORE?
My daughter - there are many challenges to raising a daughter in our current world and I am keen to be the best role model I can for her and to prove that her gender will not prevent her from achieving her dreams.

JOHN HORSFALL – PHOTOGRAPHER & ADVENTURE ATHLETE

I'm an Adventure Athlete, Photographer, Founder of Ziba Adventures and host of the Modern Adventurer Podcast.

What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is getting to old age with regret. There was a study done about regret in America. It found that people don't regret the things they did but rather the things they didn't do. I still want to see so much of the world, and I hope to experience as much of it as possible before my body gives out.

What is the biggest barrier you would like to overcome?
Having spent the best part of 18 months out injured, my focus is on full recovery in the gym and getting back to doing what I love.

What is your biggest achievement?
The first step was the most difficult! But for me running across Kenya, from the mountains on the Ugandan border to the white sandy beaches on the Kenyan coast was a huge personal achievement. Doing 27 marathons in a month, 1250 km on dirt roads, through national parks and meeting amazing people, having never run a marathon before was also pretty big. I realised then that I was capable of way more than I ever knew possible.

What are your goals for 2021?
There are a few expeditions on the horizon, but for 2021, I want to talk to as many adventurers and explorers as possible for the podcast, hear their stories which will hopefully inspire a few more people into a more adventurous life.

What inspires you to FEAR LESS DO MORE?
Overcoming that paralysis of fear allows me to explore so much of the world. It has allowed me to see some incredible things and meet remarkable people. From skiing in Iran to trekking the mountains of Tajikistan. I have been very lucky that the more I do and see the less I fear about the world.

Which AW21 Musto product was your favourite?
I love the Fenland 2.0 Jacket. It is so easy to put on and fold away into my backpack and it keeps me warm and dry when the rain picks up. It’s the perfect companion for any adventure and I know it will hold up against the elements in any environment. A definite must-take item for me.

Why is pushing out of your comfort zone so important to you?
When it comes to adventures, I’m always looking for opportunities to put myself in uncomfortable situations where I can see how far I can push myself. One of my favourite quotes is by Ginni Rometty.

"Comfort and growth do not coexist"
I don’t think I could put it any better than that.
