Callum Robson

Professional surfer / head coach

Callum didn't follow the traditional path to the Championship Tour. His late start to competitive surfing has made for a rapid assent. Callum’s focus centres around his preparation, his physical training is the foundation for his powerful brand of surfing. He attributes his success to his strong mindset, that doesn’t put limits on what’s possible. His obsession with self-improvement has seen him gravitate towards other sports and industries to mould his own approach to professional surfing. Callum's passion for coaching took off about 3 years ago through covid. "I found it pushed me to understand what I was doing and how I was doing on a much deeper level, this sparked a fire within to think on a much deeper level. I love helping make a difference to someone's surf or life journey. "
