About the Adventure Beyond Team

All of the staff here at Adventure Beyond are highly motivated and experienced in their respective activities and will always strive to provide you with the best possible activities. When their not working then you can pretty much guarantee that they are somewhere outdoors honing their skills and enjoying themselves. One thing is for sure, our staff have a passion for both the activities and adventuring.

Jethro Moore

Jethro (or Jet for short) is the companies Managing Director. Setting up Adventure Beyond in 1997, following a very respectable career as an international slalom kayaker, Jet has been a prominent figure in both the activity providing and outdoor education scene. Not just a keen paddler, Jet also enjoys climbing, coasteering and the occasional expedition.

His work has seen him work with universities, colleges, schools, youth groups and tourist groups in a wide variety of locations in the UK, Europe and beyond. Now the father of 3 young girls, Tallulah, Imara and Kiara, he still finds time to travel the world in search of adventures.

NB: A note from the site administrator - Though vertically challenged and often annoying to his friends i.e. Jethro will always be the one who ties your rucksack to a donkey...we can only pay homage our leader's outdoor skills and instructing ability. In addition I sincerely pray that he pays my invoice before he sees this footnote!

Dai Howells

Dai has been involved with Adventure Beyond for many years and since leaving the police force has become the company's corporate, events and expedition manager. Dai is a keen hiker, climber and canoeist and spends his time between the UK and sunny Mexico.

NB: Although Dai is a valued member of our team, his constant holidaying means that he is a difficult member of the team to trackdown. If anybody catches a glimpse of him could you please tell the office of your sighting!

Rhod Arnold

Rhod is the companys Operation Manager, he has been a close friend of Jet since they studied together at college and has worked for Adventure Beyond for many years. At least those years he has been in the country! He has a keen intrest in travel and adventure. When he's not leading our activities he will more than likely be found traveling the coastlines of Wales looking for the perfect wave to surf.

Rhys Green

BaA (hons) in Outdoor Education, PGCE and QTS in Secondary Outdoor Activities. I am currently Level 5 trained WW kayak coach, Level 3 Canoe coach and 4* sea leader, I have my ML and MIAS Level 2 (mountain biking), and am also a D of E assessor (to Gold). These are some of the highlights of my past education and qualifications. Currently I am working on completing my MA in Outdoor Education, and further developing my qualification skills set. 

Working highlights include; being an assistant house parent and outdoor education teacher, a sea kayak guide in Malaysia for three seasons, and 6 seasons as at an American Summer camp in many roles and capacities. 

I would say that I enjoy activities with more of a journeying element- Canoeing, All kayaking, Walking and Bikes. This enjoyment of journeying and travelling is also evident in my experiences outside of the work mentioned above, with highlights being personal kayaking trips to New Zealand, Zambia and Uganda. Throughout my time working and being outdoors I would say that my proudest moment was being awarded with the Young Volunteer Coach of the Year for Carmarthenshire in 2009. My aims for the future are to better my own understanding, improving my skills set to better assist those I take out, so that they to, can come to enjoy and be comfortable an outdoor setting.
