Level 1 ASI surf coach course that we ran this weekend has to go down as an unqualified success. All seven of the candidates were successful and achieved their Level 1 qualification and will be released on an unsuspecting public this summer.
We had a great mix on the course - everyone from ageing hellmen like big wave surfer Dan Joel to local 16 year old ripper Paddy Daniel, lifeguards Richie Platt and Josh Daniel and resting Brazilian actor (he's in between projects at the moment) Fabrizio Postiglione.
Dan Joel is starting up his own surf school over at Poldhu on the Lizard peninsula this summer and we wish him every success - well, maybe not every success but, y'know, a bit.
If you are coming for a surfing lesson this summer then no doubt you will be meeting one or more of them as they embark on what is hopefully a life of surf coaching.
