I'm Ripley Davenport. I'm an adventurer, rescue swimmer,
medic, and pragmatist with a vivid imagination. I'm also: a
son, a superhero, a father, a husband, all round nice bloke
and a regular average Joe facing similar life struggles like

Bodyboarding Monsters
Personal Challenge & Adventure

adventure swim, which is roughly the
equivalent of swimming the English
Channel two and a half times. More
details to be announced soon.
