Biography

Chris Stevens is an award-winning travel blogger, diver, surfer, photographer and ocean lover from Devon, U.K. Since quitting his 9-to-5 job in 2009, he has been bouncing around the world sharing reviews, advice and stories to inspire others to do the same – and giving them the information to make it a reality. Stevens launched an online travel agency, EpicGapYear.com, to help connect travelers with surf- and dive-adventure experiences. Through his eco-clothing brand at karmocean.com, which donates a percentage of profits, Stevens gives back to some incredible ocean-based charities and organizations including Sea Shepherd, Surfers Against Sewage, and Project AWARE®. Stevens has scuba dived and free dived everywhere from the warm waters of Thailand and Maldives to the slightly colder Silfra, in Iceland. His mission: “To spend as much time in, on or around the big blue – whether that’s surfing, scuba diving, freediving or simply chilling in a hammock by the beach!”
