Adventure, Stand Up Paddleboarding, Surf Coaching
I am the owner and operator of an adventure company specializing in surfing activities. I offer packages in surfing, Stand Up Paddle, Tai Chi and SUP Tai Chi. I provide teaching and coaching to individuals, groups, families and teams. I am proud to provide lessons and tours to intellectually disabled, autistic, vision impaired, hearing impaired, with cerebral palsy, amputees, paraplegics and organ transplant recipients.
I provide tailor-made sessions, safe and suitable for surfing for beginners to advanced. I teach how the sea works and how to work with it. I have had the pleasure of teaching surfing since January 1992, as well as Tai Chi and Qigong since January 2005.
I grew up on the Gold Coast and have been surfing most of my life. I am an ASI Level 2 surfing coach, Level 3 surfing judge and hold a Diploma of Sports Management, Level 1 CADs, surf rescue, advanced resuscitation and senior first aid qualifications. I speak 70% conversational Japanese and a bit of French, German, Italian, Indonesian, Mandarin and Thai. I am also actively involved in Rotary and was awarded a Pride of Workmanship award in 2009, as well as many other recognitions.
The reason I teach is to see the brightness in my students come alive! I love to bring out the best in my students!
