  • Description

    I’m an adventurous and creative surf instructor from Newquay, Cornwall. I’m looking to volunteer in Costa Rica as I’d love to experience the culture, have the opportunity to learn a new skills and a language, meet new like- minded people, surf and enjoy beautiful climate. This is my first experiment with workaway but I love the concept of giving my time and effort in return for accommodation, I feel like this site is giving the freedom of travel to many people. I’m an active person and am very intrigued by the beautiful coastline, marine life and all of the activities it has to offer.

  • More details about your skills

    I’m a hardworking and motivated individual, I have experience in waitressing, housekeeping, barista work, sports coaching and most recently surf instructing.
    One of my most valuable skills that I have is my communication, I am able to communicate effectively which allows me to work well within a team.
    I’m also very active and physically fit, over the summer season I have spent 6/8 hours per day in the water teaching beginner and improved surf lessons to tourists. I had to ensure I was alert at all times during lessons incase anything was to go wrong as I would have to step in, also the guests were paying for a service which I had to deliver and I hope that I did that to an excellent standard.
    I’m open to learning new skills and am greatly appreciative towards anyone who takes the time to teach me.
