THE COACHES

    Collin Crook  I am a professional surf coach. I was born and raised in San Clemente, California where you can find some of the best surf in the United States. Surfing was passed down to me by my father and I have been in the water my entire life. Because of my long acquaintance with the ocean, I have developed a strong passion for surfing and share my passion with all my clients. I have been coaching surfing for many years and have lifeguard, CPR, and first aid certifications. My main objective is to help my clients develop a relationship with the ocean in a fun and safe environment.

    Conner Anderson  My life revolves around the ocean.  Whether I was surfing or working as a California State Lifeguard, I am determined to keep the sand between my toes and the salt water in my hair.  As a surf coach with tons of local knowledge as well as ocean safety and awareness, I can assure you that you will be in good hands.  As a coach my goal is to not only teach my clients the sport of surfing, but to pass along the passion and respect for the ocean that I have gained over my many years as a surfer and waterman.

    Jake Shiroke  My name is Jake Shiroke and I’m born and raised in San Clemente, California and have been Surfing my entire life. I compete in WSA and NSSA and free surf almost every other day at T-street and/or lower Trestles. Teaching surf is a rewarding experience to me because I get to help people appreciate the sport as much as I do, but most importantly I get to help people take their surfing to the next level.
