I’m 25 years old, have been surfing for 12 and coaching for 7 years. Personally, I feel that surfing has shaped my life in a really positive way. Attending the Raglan Surfing Academy in high school allowed me to develop my skills in the ocean and learn how to analyze photo and video footage concerning the bio mechanics of surfing.
For the past 7 years I have been surf coaching in Raglan for the summers and travelling the globe in our winters, exploring new countries, cultures and surf spots. Starting a Surf School has always been a dream of mine. I find it rewarding to introduce people to our awesome sport, work through the technical aspects and then see the joy that riding a wave can bring.
Raglan is a special place in the sense that the ocean can impart so much joy in our lives. Due to the contour of our coastline, you can surf 365 days a year. We also spend time wake boarding in our beautiful harbour, kayaking, cliff jumping and the occasional fishing trip to provide a tasty dinner for friends and family.
