About Joe

I have been surfing for over 35 years and have coached since 2002. My career has been full and varied and my passion for surfing and coaching is as strong as ever. From Lifeguarding to surf school owner, contest surfer to surf industry work, big wave surfing, commercial saturation diving and everything in between.
I pride myself in being a waterman and continue to work on as many ocean related disciplines as possible. My passion for the ocean has taken me to every corner of the world and inspired almost every aspect of my life. The sea is a masterful teacher. Having the opportunity to give back and share some of my knowledge keeps me stoked!
The surfing community surrounding Westcountry Surf School is genuine and strong, I’m honoured to be a part of it and to welcome you.
