Home - Meet the Surf School Team 2017
We are fully up and operating here at the Ticket to Ride Surf School in Perranporth and getting ready for the fast approaching school holidays!
We’ve got a great team down here at the surf school for 2017, ready to blow your surfing socks off, because surf socks are for kooks. There are a few familiar faces amongst the crew and some fresh faces so we thought it would be a great idea to properly introduce ourselves.
Julian | Surf School Manager
Julian is an all time legend and has been running the surf school for a good number of years. His tirelessness and uncomfortable ice breakers are the reason why lessons with the King are always going to be epic. We also take our hats off to him for overseeing this rowdy bunch.
Josh Devaney | Senior Coach
Josh originally qualified as an Instructor on our South Africa Surf Adventure and is one of the most reliable instructors going. Now in his 4th season at Ticket to Ride Surf School, he knows all the tricks in the book to get you up and riding. When he’s not in Perranporth you’ll find him cruising round Spain and Sri Lanka as a trip leader for our worldwide surfing adventures. Living the dream Josh!
Sam Lamiroy | Professional Surfer and Advanced Surfing Coach
The man, the myth, the legend. That’s Slamiroy. Sam is the mastermind behind the iAM Bands System and is also a professional surfer sponsored by Hurley. He also does advanced coaching, Sees the positive of any situation, leads our visiting school groups and has a voice comparable to David Attenborough.
Is there anything he can’t do?
Jeffa Snell | Instructor
Representing the chicks, Jeffa is mad about bananas and like Josh went on the South Africa Surf Instructor Course as well as the Ticket to Ride trips to Costa Rica, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. Now on her second season with the Surf School she’s buzzing for the summer season after surfing through the Cornish winter.
Charlie Russell | Instructor
Charlie did his voluntary hours with us in April and we thought he was so ace, we decided to keep him on for the season. He’s an all-round nice guy, conscientious instructor and a lesson with him will come with guaranteed good vibes. When he’s not in the sea or cruising Cornwall on his motorbike you will find him wave hunting on a camel.
Cat Aylwin | Taking care of Business
If you booked a lesson with us the chances are you’ve had the pleasure of speaking to the lovely Cat over the phone or by email. Cat holds the business together and keeps all the sun frazzled instructors in line. We owe you a lot of rounds you legend.
Chris and Pete Morgan | Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee Instructors
The two bros, Chris and Pete came to the school last summer to do their voluntary hours and are now back for more! Chris looks as though he’s attempting the John John Florence hairstyle after a season ‘finding himself’ deep in the Costa Rican Junlge. On the other side Gym-nut Pete will undoubtedly give you a nutritional breakdown of what to eat after a surf lesson to get those all-important ‘gains’ to make you shred. Either way we’re stoked to have these two bearded creatures back.
So here we are, ready for the summer surf sessions and we hope you’ll come down to the surf school to join us!

Had an absolutely amazing private lesson for myself and two children (7) and(11) with Luke today.
My little boy had a bit of a meltdown getting the suit on... read more but Luke managed to calm him and help him get it on with no further tears.
Lessons started by giving us a quick safety briefing g followed by showing us how to get on the board then into the water to try it out.
Luke was great with the kids especially my youngest and with his helped they managed to ride a few waves and caught the bug so much so that after our lesson we decided to hire the boards/suits for the remainder of the day.
Cant recommended the school enough everyone we dealt with was absolutely lovely!
The best surf school in perranporth! Charlie was a really great instructor and gave lots of helpful feedback and tips that helped me to progress :)
We had a morning surf lesson, our instructor Charlie was a great guy and very helpful, and insured we got the most out of our lesson.
We all enjoyed... read more it that much that we rented the wetsuits and the surf boards for the remainder of the day so that we could practice some more. Julian who was managing the shop was super friendly also. All round a great experience, well worth a go to anyone visiting the area.
Brilliant experience all round. Our instructor Charlie was both thorough and fun, and had all 6 of us who were new to surfing standing by the end of the first... read more lesson! Couldn’t recommend highly enough!
I am a complete beginner and was quite nervous about my surfing lesson as I thought I’d be really cold. I was given a 3/4mm wetsuit which kept me warm... read more in the sea (which was 15 degrees) so that was a great start to the experience. My teacher Ollie was very precise in his instruction which made it easy for me to follow each step and towards the end of the lesson I was able to stand up and balance on the board - result! I would certainly recommend this company over the others I saw in Perranporth (which has very large groups). Thank you for a great lesson and I will certainly be trying surfing again.
