To wrap up the year in a word, we would simply have to say ‘busy’
The whole Smart Surf team have all had their hands full this summer but it all worked out for the best. Seb has been on several big trips with his sponsor VANS and one trip in particular saw him on a massive pull out poster inside one of the big UK surf magazines. We must say a special thank you to Steve England from Carve Surfing Magazine for all his help.
Senior coach Sam has re joined the UKPSA (UK pro surf tour) and has been competing all over the UK throughout the year. He eventually finished 8th overall in the UK and is looking to make the top 5 next year. It’s tough to find time to surf yourself when you are coaching 2 or 3 lessons a day !
In between getting in the sea as much as she can, Hollie has been combining her surf coaching with being a Mum (to our 1 year old, Ru) and running her air BnB all at the same time !
Our season is short and intense and running a family business is tough but very rewarding.
Come winter, we can now look for ways to make summers better for all of us (including our customers)
Moving forward, we are in discussions about smaller groups, longer lessons and are in the process of ordering some new equipment.
In the meantime, we will be surfing ourselves.
Bring on the winter – see you all next summer !
