Ian Freemantle – Co-Owner

Ian graduated with a degree in engineering from the University of Cape Town in 1996. He worked as an engineer for more than 10 years during which time he was fortunate enough to escape the hum drum of engineering to enable him to travel extensively. His true passion though, is adventure travel and extreme sports and in 2009 he decided to take a leap of faith and live his passion. Cape Adventure Zone was born.

Ian is an accomplished waterman and an avid surfer and kitesurfer. He also enjoys spending time in the mountains hiking and rock climbing and is always game for a bit of an adventure.
