My Story

Personal Statement:

I think the most important thing you need to know about me is that surfing and travel are my passions and as the saying goes I’m still super stoked love meeting new people and experiencing new cultures, having fun and being able to help surfers improve their skills.

I have over 20 years’ experience in surf coaching and surf travel, specialising in improving technique and competitive strategy for competition surfing.

I have represented the British surfing team as head coach in 2018 and 2019 in their challenge to reach Olympic qualification, England surfing team as head coach for the past eight years at the world games and European surfing championships with team members winning Gold, silver and bronze medals and team podium finishes.

I have coached and helped hundreds of intermediate to professional surfers to improve their techniques, ocean awareness and safety in the surf line.
