SURF COACH ROLE 2020
Who we are - https://www.tinywhalesurflodge.com/
Tiny Whale Surf Lodge is one of the leading surf holiday providers in Europe. It offers staff challenging job roles as well as the opportunity to develop their experience working in beautiful surroundings in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
At Tiny Whale there are two aspects to the businesses, a small surf school delivering lessons to external clients on a daily basis, and our main business as a boutique surf lodge offering week long surf holidays. Our weekly surf holidays have a strong emphasis on coaching within a proven coaching structure giving guests with a broad understanding of the sport and an investment into their surfing future.
We’re not looking for your average surf coach! We’re looking for coaches who are passionate about helping people to develop their surf knowledge and capability and offering an exceptional and highly professional experience for guests. We’re keen to hear from individuals who are serious about delivering market leading surf coaching and want to improve the level of surf holidays in the marketplace.
We’re looking for coaches who love to teach, want to improve their coaching techniques far beyond the basics and develop a career in the surf industry. This role would suit someone who is looking for a medium to long term career opportunity in the Algarve.
Due to the nature of the business coaches are expected to work across both parts of the surf school, both with weekly and external clients. The role involves carrying out surf school operations such as equipment and van maintenance, daily kit preparation and pack down, and participating in social events with guests will also be within the scope of the role. Overall as we are a small business flexibility and opens to a range of tasks, duties and work is essential.
