ISA/SGB Course Presenters Required


Surfing GB is looking for two new enthusiastic and dynamic course presenters to deliver the new ISA/SGB Level 1 Surf Coach Award, joining the existing four ISA presenters – Andy Joyce (Bournemouth); Barry Hall (Newquay); Dean Gough (Pembroke) and Stuart Parry (Polzeath).

The intention is to ensure that there is a broad spread of access to Level 1 courses offered in relation to the geographical popularity of surfing and its key centres. In collaboration with the ISA, Surfing GB is keen to ensure that the emphasis remains on “quality rather than quantity” and the number of course presenters in Great Britain will be restricted to meet identified needs.

The ISA will be notified of the names of the successful applicants, who will then be required to complete the ISA approval process with the full support of SGB – (See link below)
