Luke Templeton, Surf Coach 2022

I had an extremely fun, interesting and challenging week completing the Beach Lifeguard qualification and ISA level 1 course at the Wave. The course was run superbly by ERA and couldn’t have asked for better instructors. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in becoming a qualified Surf coach and lifeguard!


Simao, Surf Coach 2022

I’ve always had the desire to become a professional surf coach ,I knew The Wave was the place that could make my dream happen! I wanted to join the team because this is UK most consistent wave within a industry that is rapidly expanding! The course was very practical! I love the fact that allows you to solidify and obtain new knowledge! It’s definitely suited for intermediate to expert surfers that want to start coaching! I love to make a difference on peoples lives! helping someone riding their first wave and being able to witness the glow in their eyes!
