After which he became a manager at the British Disabled Waterski and Wakeboard Association before moving to Cornwall and founding Kernow Adventure Park. 

“Kessel quarry holds a special place in my heart for a number of reasons; the peaceful atmosphere, the deep spring fed water and the sheer walls of granite to name a few, and I’m not alone in believing that the location has a special energy.”


Steve Main

Steve is one of our managers and has a background in the Royal Air Force but after a 12 year military career he decided to follow his passion and coach people in the outdoor adventure industry. He has been wakeboarding at the park since it opened and is keen to introduce others to the world of watersports. 

“It’s been incredible to watch the park’s journey. I have so many happy memories here, time to make some new ones!”

Will started out as part of our Aquapark safety team but soon moved up through the ranks and is now a manager alongside Steve. Having grown up in Cornwall, he has a strong connection to the ocean and to surfing. This extends to other watersports as well and he enjoys leading activities and interacting with customers to make sure they have a memorable experience. 

“I’m super excited for the upcoming season here at Kernow.”
