Position at WAVEROCKER

Alpnachstad in Obwalden, Switzerland

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.

Hobbies other than surfing
Windsurfing, rowing, sailing, tennis, football, snowboarding

My perfect day
Coffee, surf lessons with happy students, surfing punchy, long waves for powerful cutbacks, having a good barbecue with guests and friends at home after enjoying a cold beer looking at the amazing sunset

The best thing about Waverocker
The complete silence as well as Marujas purity and friendliness blow me away every single day
