Thanks for taking the time to learn about our story. The Humber Sport website was created to be the one stop shop for learning about adventure activities. We provide a vast array of information on gear, skills and tips for hiking, snorkeling, bicycle touring, climbing, kayaking, snow sports, sailing and mountain biking and other sports that we love.
Our goal is simple – give you everything you need to feel safe, confident and prepared in the outdoors.
Buying gear online can be tricky. There are scores of brands and models to choose from, each with different features, lengths and body shapes. To make matters more complicated, there’s no way to take any prospective sports gear out for a test drive when you’re buying off the internet.
Every sports lover wants an affordable, high quality gear that they can rely on for years to come. Nothing could be worse than spending several hundred dollars on a model that you just don’t like.
But with so many options to choose from, it’s difficult to know just where to begin. User reviews and critical evaluations are often polarized and conflicting, and shoppers never really know who they can rely on for good advice. We’re hoping to make the process just a little bit simpler.

Matt McKnight – Owner and Founder of Humber Sport
He started the site back in 2016 because he is a passionate outdoors guy who enjoys being in the wild and doing many different types of outside activities, such as paddle boarding, kayaking, diving all the way to camping and hiking!
I fell in love with the outdoors back when I was a little kid when my dad used to take me on camping trips in our kayak. It has since grown from there and into this site.
Richard Hinkel – Climbing Writer and Chief Editor
Hi there! My name is Richard and my main passion in life is hiking and climbing. You’ll find me most weekends hiking off somewhere and climbing whatever I can find on my way.
I fell in love with the sport back when I was a kid on family camping trips and the things I climb have got higher and higher ever since!
