Surfer, Newquay, Cornwall

I am a surfer and surf coach. I currently coach a few local groms who are improving so quickly and coach on Corinne Evans girls surf tour which is hoping to expand and take us to some exciting new places. So far I have not competed much but a, hoping to get more into it next season, I did enter boardmasters 2014 and managed to get through to the second round. This winter I am going to be working a lot with Treviglas sports hub and Oceancore in order to get super fit and hopefully boost my confidence in bigger waves. I have been on a few trips to France with a local club, Groundswell where I have learnt a lot and also took a trip to Morocco in January 2015 which really improved my surfing.

I used to always get ear infections but I hated to wear ear plugs as I found it really messed up my balance and it made me less confident as I couldn’t hear. With SurfEars I can still hear so now I tend to be more confident. And it stops the ear infections!
