Chris has enjoyed Gower for over 40 years, as a water sports enthusiast he has made the most of the beaches and coastline and over time has developed an intimate knowledge of the area. Enjoygower originally started as a technical challenge, but has grown into a labour of love, where he is able to combine his design skills with his knowledge of the Gower. The Enjoygower project has lead to new challenges and he is constantly discovering new features and facts about Gower.
