Here is the Latchi Watersports Team for 2018 – and I’m sure you’ll agree, they’re a beautiful bunch of people.
Did you know that they are experts in; Boat Hire, Watersports, Yacht Charters and Diving. A highly qualified and motivated team that consistently deliver on customer service and expertise. Oh, and they’re friendly too!
I’ve been in Cyprus for 12 years, but working for Latchi Watersports for only 6 years. I am the little blonde one that hangs around the big blue umbrella in the harbour. I am the one who offers you our brochures and information every time you pass by. I am always happy to answer any questions.
I am the assistant manager here at the watersports, I worked my way up through the ranks with the help of my good looks and enthusiasm. I am the one, often mistaken for Tom, but I’m better looking and younger ;)
I am a very proud family man, I have worked at Latchi Watersports for 6 years now and I’ve loved every season, its such good fun and everybody gets on so well. I am so jolly that at our summer Christmas party, it’s me who dons the Santa outfit. You’ll find me either under the umbrella chatting to everyone or giving coastal briefings on the deck.
I’m the friendly but elusive face you’ll meet if you come to our beach watersports office! I am the beach manager for Latchi Watersports and have been with the company for 7 years, overseeing all watersports activities and fun on the water! Beach life!
I am the really pale one behind the desk, often getting caught trying to sneak outside into the sun for a bit. So answering emails, telephones and customers questions is the game, booking boats, diving and everything else is the aim.
I am the chief mechanic at Latchi Watersports. Originally from York, if I am not complaining about something, I am drinking Yorkshire tea – the true cup! I am here for any of your engine’s needs.
After founding the company in 1985 with a couple of small boats and a canoe, I decided to take a back seat in 2010. I couldn’t quite cut all ties, so I now hang around the centre doing briefings and I am the chief of parasailing, so if you want to fly, I am your guy. I am also a commercial captain.
I am the newest member of the team, here at Latchi Watersports, this is my first season and I will spend the majority of my time at the beach office where I am the senior sailing instructor, I am also an RYA powerboat instructor.
I am one of the diving instructors here at the watersports. I have been diving for 26 years and completed some of my qualifications with Latchi Watersports and I’ve worked at the centre ever since. I’m the one that tries to sell you dive courses.
Joey Carlsberg Cheeseman – I work in the harbour, doing boat briefings, guided trips and most things boat related. My favourite job is keeping the boats and myself hydrated.
I am the silent but deadly type, they call me the ninja! As a man of few words, you will never really know what I’m thinking – but of course they are always friendly thoughts. I hold a commercial captains license, and as a multi-lingual, I am highly coveted.
Diver, boat driver, mechanic and sailor in that order! I also make a mean curry. As long as it involves getting wet or fed I’m in…….
They call me odd job. I am one of the commercial boat license holders in the company, and I am one of only 2 members off staff that can captain the parasailing boat which I really enjoy.
I started at the Watersports as an intern in 2016 and within two months I was promoted to a fully-fledged member of the team. I split my time between the harbour and the beach office, which ensures there is never a dull moment.
If James Bond was from Argaka………. Cool as a cucumber and with the same percentage of water. My Favorite phrase “One Boat!”.
I have been slaving here for the last 15 years. I’ve worked my way up to Yacht Master. I spend most of my time at the beach office, or doing trips on our luxury Bavaria 41 or Jeanneau 349 sailing yachts. I also run the RYA powerboat courses.
I am a diving instructor and after working in South America for the past couple of years, I decided to come closer to home, so I joined the diving team at Latchi for the 2017 season. I am looking forward to summer, when the sea gets warmer as this time of year it’s a big change from what I am used to.
One of Three twins, I am the friendly face behind the desk. I’m a huge speedboat fan, so on my days off you can find me defeating my t-shirt tan in Manolis Bay. I’m looking forward to having a boat named after me (‘Earthworm Jim’).
I am the chief diving instructor at Latchi Watersports. I am a PADI Course Director who joined the Latchi dive team at the beginning of the 2017 season. Previous to this I spent 10 years working in Southeast Asia. I’m all about diving, diving and more diving! I add my experience to an already professional and experienced diving team.
Without a doubt the best boat handling skills in the company, and I’m only eight, good at carrying stuff and spraying random people with the hose, and I’m always up for an ice cream too.
Hey, guys, I’m Henry and I come from Devon which is in the south west of England, I love all sports especially skiing and wakeboarding also I really enjoy teaching people with all types of abilities. I’m 20 years old, outgoing and looking forward to meeting everyone involved with Latchi watersports.
I was lucky enough to be one of the successful interns for Summer 2018! A sailor through and through, mixing water with work, definitely not hard to wake up in the morning. I’m known to be very talkative, good luck in trying to make me zip it!
I have worked in the industry for 7 years as a watersports instructor and Yachtmaster in the UK. At last, decided it’s time for some sun so knew Cyprus wouldn’t disappoint.
I’m one of the Senior Watersports staff members here at Latchi Watersports, I teach a wide variety of Watersports but my specialist sports are Multi-Hull Sailing, Powerboat & PWC. I look forward to seeing you during the season”
Hey – I am a diving instructor originally from Stratford Upon Avon which is in the middle of England. I have spent the last 8 years working around the world which shows when you listen to my accent! Super excited to join the team for the 2018 season, meeting great people and sharing my passion for the ocean.
I grew up in Bishop Auckland, in the North East of England. I studied dance since I was 3 years old and have danced on stage in London’s West End and at Disneyland Paris. Having finished my ‘A’ levels, I’m now looking forward to working hard through the summer, meeting new people and learning new skills in a beautiful environment.
Our fleet of 30+ rental boats and our PADI 5 Star Dive Centre is located in Latchi, while our beachfront operations are more watersports orientated with three ski boats operating between the two sites and a whole spectrum of activities available ranging from sailing to jetski hire to banana rides.
Our main emphasis is on safety and our highly trained and professional Latchi Watersports team will look after your every need to ensure your time on the water with us is the highlight of your holiday.
Founded in 1980, Latchi Watersports started life as a small operation with a couple of windsurfers and a small speedboat, but over the years it has grown to become the largest and one of the best Watersports and dive centres in Cyprus.
Latchi is located on the Akamas Peninsular on the north west coast of Cyprus. It’s just a short boat ride away from the Akamas National Park and its stunning coastline, which is the best in Cyprus. Our main centre of operation is located in the picturesque fishing harbor in Latchi, with two further beachfront operations located at La Plage and Anassa Beach.
We have a great team of professionals here at Latchi Watersports. Throughout the season the team is at least 20 people, increasing to almost 30 during July and August.
