Grew up surfing the Gold Coast in the ’80s. During his overseas travels, he developed a real passion for surfing, realising that the ocean had a lot more to offer than just waves. “We can learn so much about life and ourselves from the ocean.

I just want to share the joy and happiness it gives to me with everyone else”. Marcel has coached pro surfers to world championship level and won awards for his work coaching people with disabilities. He was 2003 Surfing Queensland Coach of the Year.


Born and bred on the Gold Coast, Jaz has been surfing ever since she can remember. A talented surfer with a great appreciation and understanding of the ocean she was a regular member of the Gold Coast Junior surfing team.

Jaz soon discovered surfing contests and competition were not really her thing preferring to simply enjoy the ride and go with the flow. Aspects that comes out in her coaching style and general approach to life.


Luisa grew up in Sao Paulo one of Brazil’s major cities. Her first surfing experience was as a young child standing up on a bodyboard. She soon realised that it was in the ocean, when she was riding waves and away from the city, that she was able to find her true sense of self and so it was only natural that the ocean and surfing became a major part of her life.

Luisa loves to share with others what the ocean has given to her. “I have an instant connection with the ocean when I am in it and surfing has always been somewhat of a spiritual experience for me”. People who surf with Luisa discover the whole new world that the unique feeling of riding waves gives and in many cases much more!
