My competitive surfing career served as the perfect apprenticeship for coaching future generations. Representing Queensland & Australia from a junior through to a master enabled me to work with different coaches, learning various techniques.

The most valuable experience was the years travelling the globe surfing professionally, surfing heats against the worlds best (including world champions) & gathering knowledge of different surf breaks around the world.

Passing this knowledge onto young surfers is something I thoroughly enjoy, whether it’s information to succeed competitively or the technique required for progression, watching young surfers gain confidence and achieve goals is satisfying.
