Ella is a surf coach when she isn't busy working somewhere in a creative field.
Growing up on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia. Ella was in the water before she started walking. She started surfing with her dad, refusing to wait on the beach. By the time she was 16, she was teaching at Apollo Bay Surf & Kayak. Since then she has taught all ages from 4 to 70+. Her philosophy – when it comes to surfing is ‘It’s just meant to be fun!’.
Nearly every summer, Ella gravitates back to the coast to teach surfing – from Torquay to Apollo Bay and many places in between, Ella takes private classes as well as school groups of up to 100 students (with the help of some other instructors!).
Being connected to the ocean is a vital part of her being.
