Sammy Sunshine

Sammy’s elegant longboard style is effortless to watch. She has just landed herself a sponsorship from Surfdome, travelling Morocco, Costa Rica and Europe during the winter for both waves and snow! With the start of the contest season now upon us she has kick-started the year with a 4th place finish in the women’s longboard division.

Lucie Rose Donlan – Instructor

Another of our sponsored coaches, Lucie is a young talent working her way up to becoming a surfing star! With sponsorship from Protest, Northcore and Adams Surf Industries amongst others. You’ll be sure to find Lucie on the beach during a photo-shoot or in the water training. If you’ve got a dog, be sure to bring them along to meet Lucie as there’s nothing she loves more than dogs!

Matt Stokes – Instructor

Matt Stokes

We are so pleased to have Matty with us this year. He is a free spirited surfer and we have met no one with as much zest for life by the ocean as Matty, he is guaranteed to give you a surf lesson to remember. Having spent the last few years travelling New Zealand and Canada for waves and snow, he has a wealth of boarding experience. Get him whilst he’s here this summer as he is likely to jet off to somewhere warm again for a few years!
