Tom Thorpe Surfski

Tom Thorpe

Role: Director and Guide.

Qualified: British Canoeing Advanced Leader.

It’s just me! My name is Tom and I run Surfski Dynamics and I paddle as much as possible! For last few years I have been an avid sea kayaker and after being sponsored by several brands and focusing on fast sea kayaks and expeditions, I found surfski and was completely blown away. What started as a project has now turned into a complete lifestyle choice and I am grateful to all the people that have and continue to support me. My passion is training and open water and I have brought the training aspects of climbing, the exploration and ocean knowledge of sea kayaking and the performance of surfski to create my perfect sport. What I love about surfski is how progressive it is and even the world champions are continuously getting better and working towards goals. Surfskis have the ability to surf the smallest ripple and I’ve found that all the places I have searched out over the last few years have taken on another dimension. I know the south west’s coastline inside out and I can show you amazing places and help you on your surfski journey. My ethos is ‘Do what’s on your doorstep’ and you’re right, I wont be on race leader boards in exotic countries, but I’ll be ripping up tideraces and downwind runs in my home counties. I very much look forward to meeting you.
