Ian Warwick – Deputy Head Coach

Freddie

Freddie is our go-to guy for anything to do with longboarding or the history of surfing. If he doesn’t know it then it probably isn’t worth knowing. Freddie will be coaching throughout the summer so if you want to improve your longboarding then he is the man to ask.

Freddie has been surfing for over 30 years and is one of the best instructors there is. In his former life he travelled the world with work but now he’s based back in Cornwall and spending all his free time in the water.

And why do we call him Freddie? He looks like Freddie Mercury! It’s uncanny.
