Our team of coaches are watermen through and through, they love living in Cornwall, and are all keen surfers and coasteerers who are fully trained instructors and beach lifeguards. This means that you can relax and enjoy being in the ocean as you know you are in safe hands.
Surfing England is the recognised National Governing Body for the sport of surfing in England and OA Surf Club is proud to be accredited by them to run surf lessons. All of our instructors are qualified surf coaches and are beach lifeguards.
Meet The Team
Rob has grown up with saltwater in his veins, he has been involved in the watersports industry from an early age and has been coaching Surfing, Windsurfing, Coasteering and other activities for the past 25 years. He has managed a local surf school for the past 20 years and brings a wealth of operational and safety knowledge to the OA Surf Club.
Tia has always participated in multiple sports growing up; however, it wasn’t until she caught her first wave that she truly became hooked on surfing and spends as much time in the sea pushing herself as well as coaching others. Tia’s been coaching for almost 3 years now, and is highly motivated about encouraging more women to learn to surf, and create a highly popular, and friendly female band of surfers.
Freddie has been coaching surfing for 5 years, and moved from Newquay to Bude. Converted by the types of waves that we have around Widemouth Bay, he’s not moving on! The keenest surfer ever, he likes to explore all the different waves that we have here in the South West and has also surfed in New Zealand and Fuerteventura.
Jess is a real water baby and will take every opportunity to get out onto the water, whether that’s on a surfboard, windsurf or snorkelling around our amazing beaches. She has lived around the world and had the opportunity to surf in different parts of Europe including Lanzarote. Jess is a full-time university student but has chosen to spend her summer down in Cornwall, instructing with OA surf club.
Ollie is a Bude local and has been surfing around Cornwall and North Devon for over 15 years. Ollie is always keen to get out onto the water and has been doing so since he was 5! His surfing experience and extensive knowledge of our local beaches makes him a talented instructor for OA, and he is great at motivating people to get into and improve their surfing.
