I love the ocean, adventure and fitness so I combined the two and founded an alternative sporting practice called Durban surf and Skate School. I offer in depth knowledge and make the sport safe and fun for everyone.

I am a certified lifeguard and have 6 years of coaching experience. I am fun to be around and extremely accommodating. My coaching style is very personal and quickly adapts to suit your needs. Young, old, big or small, there is no limit to surfing. We have a range of boards to cater for everyone and even some sponge boards for the babas.

Great instructor. He's very punctual and he will make you feel like you're at home even when you're out in the ocean.
