''When I'm not flying the flag for Wales I literally can’t live without being in water, whether I’m in my kayak, swimming, jumping off cliffs or even surfing.''
My name is Klaudio Hacaj and I have recently graduated from studying a degree in Outdoor Adventure Leadership and Management, mainly learning about how to deliver high quality outdoor experiences.
I now spend most of my time working as a Mountain Leader and Coaching a youth climbing squad.
The big picture for me is to become a Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor (MCI) and do what I love all year around.
Oh and I will never say no to a pint after an epic adventure."
''I am a marine conservationist and surfer living in Cornwall!
Based on a campus in Newquay I studied my degree in Zoology at Plymouth University. My studies focused on the Marine Environment with my dissertation looking into Microplastic Pollution in North Cornwall.
After my degree I worked for Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay. From there I then moved onto my role at The National Lobster Hatchery Padstow where I now help run the daily operations of the as well as oversee the education and volunteering programmes. If I'm not looking after tens of thousands of lobsters in the hatchery, you'll find me exploring the coastline; mostly surfing, but if it's flat I'll be freediving, kayaking, paddle boarding or just walking the coast path with my fiancée and Freddie the dog!''

''When I'm not playing rugby you'll find me either at the beach or in the nearest coffee shop!''
