Team Riders... Toby Donachie (15)

A rare talent to come out of the UK and a real hope for the future. We are Toby's coaching sponsors alongside Nike, Quiksilver and Fluid Juice. As a Surf's Up! team rider he trains with our Elite squad three times a week - that's when he's in the country! Most of the time though he competes both here in the UK and in Europe. This Summer our Elite coach Kelly O'Toole will support him at the World's and the Pro Juniors. Toby has recently returned from a month of training with Martin Dunn, regarded as the number one surf coach in the world, in Australia and then met up with Kelly in Bali for a further two weeks of intensive training. Throughout the year you can follow his progress - get the latest news from all the events.

Toby is a superb role model for our Surf's Up! Boardriders Club and provides inspiration to the younger members. If you want to watch Toby surfing, then you can either go to the events or alternatively you'll find him either on Polzeath Beach after school or ripping it up at Constantine Toby's very easy to spot from the beach - very powerful but super smooth, generates lots of speed. He stands our from the crowd. Competing at the highest level against the best in Europe is a challenge, but one that he's ready for. These are his apprentice years. We can expect him to dominate the UK scene and pick up valuable experience overseas in preparation for a much bigger assault on the world scene over the next few years.
