Ben is the founder of Surfability UK CIC. He has been coaching for 8 years and coaching people with disabilities for 7 years. Ben has dyspraxia which affects his balance and co-ordination, learning to surf was a massive help with this, but was a real challenge. Having to focus on his own co-ordination skills has given Ben lots of empathy and patience. A great thing about surfing is you can fall off again and again and it doesn’t hurt.
Toby has been coaching for 3 years and surfing since he was very young. He is a passionate and competitive sports-person and is great at finding new techniques to suit people’s abilities.
