Nebikon, Luzern

Education and Career
Degree in secondary education at PH Luzern (Sports, Geography, English and Maths)

Tom started surfing in South Africa in 2005. After spending a semester in Australia it became obvious that life as a teacher in Switzerland was out of the question. He completed the Surf Instructor Course and worked in surfschools in France, Portugal and Indonesia. The opportunity of combining his passions for surfing and teaching has fascinated him ever since. To him there is no better feeling than hearing the screams of joy coming from students surfing the first waves of their lives.
