Catching a wave with Corinne...

Corinne Evans First Wave Adventures

Proudly introducing our surf coach and all round good friend, Corinne Evans.

Corinne’s passion is surfing and she loves to share her knowledge and skills with individuals to help them reach their full potential.  She excels at boosting the self-esteem of young girls and encouraging them to achieve their dreams. Low self-esteem has been proven to be a crippling factor in both personal and academic development so at First Wave Adventures, we strive to increase confidence for all students. This is why we are delighted to have Corinne on board (excuse the pun) and to be able to share her passion with our First Wave Adventure school groups, Corinne works with women of all ages and she has a personal reason which drives her passion.

Corinne says "I moved to Cornwall at the age of 13 and this is where my love for the ocean began. As a young teen I remember watching my Dad and brother surfing together, I always wanted to join them but I lacked confidence and the fear of failure held me back. Running my Girls Surf Tour keeps me busy all year round, the drive to get more women and girls into the sport is what I wake up for. Allowing them to have a relaxed environment where they can learn how to surf, meet new friends and feel confident in and out of the water are the main goals behind me creating Corinne’s Surf Tour."

  •  ISA Level 1 Instructor
  • Surf Life Saving GB Qualification

Corinne promotes healthy eating and shares tips for gaining a positive approach to dealing with the daily reality of being a woman. A writer for Surfgirl Magazine and a favourite with the First Wave girls.
