Jo Moseley


Jo Moseley is a single mum of two sons in their 20s who lives on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Alongside her day job, she is an author, podcaster, speaker and award winning tiny filmmaker.

In 2019, Jo, then aged 54, became the first woman to stand up paddleboard (SUP) 162 miles from Liverpool to Goole along the Leeds Liverpool Canal. She was picking up litter and fundraising. A film about her adventure called Brave Enough – A Journey Home to Joy has been screened at prestigious film festivals and online.

Jo calls herself a joy encourager, midlife adventurer and beach cleaner. She is committed to sharing the happiness and well-being moving in nature can bring women in midlife and beyond and caring for our planet. Jo believes you are never too old for an adventure and it’s never too late to make a difference.

Her bestselling book Stand Up Paddleboarding in Great Britain – Beautiful Places to Paddleboard in England, Scotland and Wales was published in 2022, an account of her travels across the country visiting gorgeous places to paddle and meet with the inspiring SUP community.

Jo was a speaker at our 2022 National Conference. Accepting our invitation to become a patron she said the kindness, spirit and generosity of the NWR members had really touched her.

I felt like I was amongst friends already.  Interesting, intelligent, supportive women I could have chatted with for hours. I look forward to being a patron of NWR and sharing this positive community.
