Emily Marsay - Coach


No business could survive without an enthusiastic administrator who knows the business inside out and understands the needs of the customer, the skills of the coaches, and matches them up seamlessly.

Annie is an ISA Adaptive Surf Coach and an SLSGB Level 2 First Aider, and therefore often provides additional in-water or beachside support to the coaches, particularly within our adaptive sessions. What she lacks in 'elite' surfing skills, she makes up for in enthusiasm, a love of the ocean and an ability to laugh at her own attempts to aspire as a wanna be shredder!

Annie provides British Sign Language support for our deaf clients, and MAKATON to those individuals who use this communication system. As an ex-special needs teacher of 30years experience working with children and their families, rest assured that no question is too small or silly to be asked. All customers are treated with respect and with advocacy to ensure that from their initial contact with us to the time of leaving a successful lesson with Peg's Surfing Coaching, they feel that they are a part of our ever expanding surfing family.

Annie Etheridge - Administrator, Adaptive Surf Coach, First Aider and friendly person who answers phone calls and emails!
