We've met James and he's such a great coach. Even in April, when the sea was minus 10C. We still got a cheer after blatantly falling off and laughing our heads off Editor

He is a fun, patient and experienced coach who tailors each session around my goals, skill level and surf conditions.His approach helps me grow and go beyond my comfort zone. Each session feels like a step forward, and I leave every time feeling more confident and empowered.Highly recommend James to anyone looking to improve their surfing and boosting confidence.

James is the man! I spent a week in Portugal with James as my instructor. He's a pro and he took my surfing to the next level. I learned water safety, how to read the waves, how to get out to the break, how to turn and so much more! James has a patient style that is reminiscent of a good psychologist. Plus, we had a ton of laughs out there, which put me at ease. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced surfer, James can teach you and make it fun!

We spent a wonderful afternoon with James on a paddle boarding trip. Great family activity, James was a great instructor and guide, knowledgeable about the area and easy to talk too. We are a family of mixed ability, some more confident than others but James made it fun for all of us. Great afternoon paddling through lovely scenery . Top fella and great activity, highly recommend. Thanks James.

We had an amazing time paddle boarding off the coast of Clovelly with James as our guide. The views were stunning and great to be able to paddle board in such a calm and protected part of the sea. James was a brilliant instructor and made it all feel very easy! It was an added bonus to have entry to Clovelly included and a picturesque walk down to the harbour.
