Adam Gendle

Adam, or Gendle as he is better known, is a TV presenter, ex pro-snowboarder and live host.  His background in free sports led to him writing and directing in the field which has organically led to his onscren career.

Gendle is currently fronting the Red Bull Soapbox series for the channel Dave, travelling the globe presenting the action alongside co-presenter and best mate Tim Warwood.

Autumn 2015 sees the launch of The Indestructibles on Dave.  This new series sees Tim and Gendle team up to re-create spectacular action sports stunts.  With limited time and resources, the series promises to be entertaining viewing.

Gendle's presenting career started with Red Bull's long-running globally distributed show Cliptomaniacs.  The show was a mix of action sports clips and comedy skits and ran for 5 successful series.

Next, Gendle fronted Goalmouth for Disney XD, the channel's flagship football series.  This was Disney's first UK production for the channel and ran for 4 years.  The show proved to be hugely popular with Disney's young audience and led to Gendle being stopped in the street for autographs which came as an unexpected but welcome surprise.

Tim and Gendle's popularity with a young audience led to them fronting a webisode series for CBBC last year.  The Ultimate Masters of Bushcraft was linked to the CBBC show Wild! and allowed the boys to indulge their love of comedy character acting.

Alongside his presenting career, Gendle is also busy writing and directing. Over the past 12 months,Gendle has written and presented 3 pilots, 2 of which are currently in production.  The third has just been commissioned.

Previous to his broadcast career Gendle was a professional snowboarder.  Originally from Tamworth in Staffordshire, for 10 years he competed at the highest levels.  Starting out naturally producing and directing snowboard films, he formed the production company Lockdown Projects alongside all round partner in crime Tim Warwood in 2004.  Since then, they have produced some of the most popular British snowboard films ever made.

In his limited spare time Gendle loves surfing and is a huge football fan.
