David Haze is a 7-time World Record Stand Up Paddle Boarder.
After reaching the lowest point in his life David Haze realised he was distracted from his true values and what made him come alive. He is now on a journey of ‘self discovery’, a quest to take his love for adventure and bringing people together out into the world with the aim to inspire and motivate personal growth. He wants more people to break free, come alive and take that step into the unknown to truly live through adventure no matter how big or small. If you have a vision, then commit to it, give it your all and do not let outside factors stop you. The only thing that will hold you back in life is yourself and I his whole life he has done just that but no longer.
David Haze wants to live by his own example, which is why he is about to launch his ‘Europe’s Untamed Beasts’ a first of its kind SUP adventure. This consists of 33 lakes and records in 66 days. He is also attempting to be the first person to SUP the river Nile and the formidable Skeleton Coast.
“David is both an inspirational individual and an inspirational speaker. Kier Infrastructure were fortunate enough to have a chat with him about his life and adventures recently and David spoke with energy, honesty and openness about his experiences in prison, justice reform work, mental resilience and paddleboarding records. Its great to meet someone who can bring so many different elements together into a connected experience and, based on the great feedback received, I believe that all those who joined the discussion are the better for it. Well worth a chat with him”

“David’s talk had all the authenticity of someone who was talking about their adventures for the first time and all the confidence and professionalism of someone who has been speaking on stage for decades. His sessions were brilliantly received at both our online and in-person events and we would book David to speak again anytime we had the chance!”
Matt, Armchair Festival
“David delivered a talk on his experiences in prison to the Level 4 Criminology students at Bournemouth University with such professionalism and understanding. David was well received and the students walked away gaining more knowledge on a world so mis-understood.”
Patrick, Bournemouth University
“David co-facilitated a school group work programme with me, working with teenagers most at risk of exclusion and entering the criminal justice system. He proved to be caring, empathetic, calm and most of all clearly focused on helping young people to be the best they could be. The impact he had with the group extended to all he works with. He has achieved an extraordinary amount in such a short time since being released during the covid lockdown, and continues to add more world records to his already impressive collection. These achievements are not only as a way of growing himself, but are also to raise awareness and support meaningful causes that impact others. He is inspirational to everyone who meets him and a reminder to us all that, with determination, vision and belief, we can achieve anything.”
