Windsurfing is a cross between surfing and sailing. You can race, jump, ride waves, spin through crazy tricks, or just blast around.

Raceboard is a class of racing board designed for optimum efficiency in all wind strengths, around a course including legs towards, across, and away from the wind.

Results and goals

Past results, future goals

When I was younger, I always felt like I was playing catch up. I got frustrated and angry with myself when I made mistakes or lost focus. I never stood on a national event podium until 2012. Yet, my enjoyment on the water in freesailing, and my strong motivation to continually improve my windsurfing meant that I couldn't stop. I gained experience, became more focussed, and started to do well.

At the moment, I have two main goals in windsurfing:

Windsurf racing is hard. It requires excellent technique, fitness, ability to tune equipment, tactics, mental focus, and endurance. But I love this, and enjoy communicating my knowledge to others through coaching.


It makes me very happy to see others enjoy and progress in windsurfing. I have extensive coaching experience. First, with Team-15 coaching whilst working as an employee for Southwest Lakes Trust and the Polkerris Beach company, from which several young windsurfers have gone onto enjoy racing with success nationally and internationally. Since then I have provided private coaching to the Cornish competitors of the Techno 293 class, and the RYA Cymru-Wales South and West regional Techno squad.


If you would like me to coach for you, please get in touch using the form at the bottom of this page.

I am lucky enough to be supported by Tushingham Ltd. With their support, I am able to race on the best all-round raceboard equipment available: the Starboard Phantom 377, and Severne Raceboard 9.5.


As a full time student, it is particularly difficult for me to fund my windsurfing competitions, and several times in the past, I have been unable to attend events due to lack of money. Sponsoring a windsurfer such as myself is an opportunity for exposure to an international audience. Your logo on my sails. Your products from the local beach, to national and international championships. Your name promoted through social media and extreme sports media. In particular, this year I am looking for sponsors to help me attend the 2017 Raceboard World or European Championships and the Tiree Wave Classic, I cannot afford to attend both.


If you have any questions, or think that we have something to offer one another, please contact me.
