Our Amazing Head Instructor
Dan is our Head Instructor and is amazing with all ages and abilities
Our Head Instructor, Dan, is a huge asset to our surf school. He is fantastic with all ages and all abilities, whether these are our programs for the young groms or private lessons for those having a few more years under their belt. He has an excellent manner with everyone and has an extremely down to earth, laid back approach but with a very professional standard maintained at all times within the surf school operation. He is able to build a rapport very quickly and very easily with all our surfers and love his knowledge and experience that he passes on to everyone in our lessons. Dan gets excited and shows his froth when our surfer nail something and show the progression. he is always full of encouragement and praise, understanding the need to build peoples confidence for them to progress and improve and combined with his untold patience, our surfers love him as an instructor and mentor. An excellent high performance surfer himself, he has a very high skill level of being able to explain his knowledge and understanding of techniques in easy to understand ways so that it makes it simple for our surfers to understand what he is explaining. We regularly get emails and feedback praising Dan and his lessons and people will always request Dan for follow up lessons – whether private or group or one of our specialist programs. He has the perfect mix of being relaxed in that professional manner we strive for at Walkin’ On Water and the ethos that we promote.
