Eskinzo was officially established at the start of 2018 with one idea in mind: which is to provide the best surfing instruction using the best equipment whilst having as much fun as possible.
We are constantly working to develop new lesson ideas and options to make our activities more accessible for everyone.
With over a decades worth of experience starting as board caddies and wetsuit washers we've spent a huge amount of time working in the water having acquired our qualifications over 10 years ago and until recently, held head instructor positions within the UK.
Ben originally grew up in Cornwall and started surfing back in the late 90's with his dad. He has over 10 years of international lifeguarding & surf coaching experience along with three years prior experience working at an outdoors activities company so should you happen to find yourself in a lesson with ben then your in great hands - ( Elena )
Elena, haha. Hmm, what to say? Elena is probably the craziest of the bunch and definitely has the funnest lesson warm ups on the beach ( lookout! mum's & dad's! ) originally from Sevilla i met Elena when we were working together at another school over four years ago. Elena is a fantastic SUP & Surf instructor with over 6 years teaching experience and 7 years personal surfing and surf travel experience - ( Ben )
Irene or "Iri" for short, our "not so little sister/in law :)" Iri's main passion is design & textiles, not quite what you thought was going to be written here but hey, she's pretty damn good! "eskinzo merchandise here we come!" Based primary in Sevilla, Spain. Iri is also one of four co founders of the eskinzo surf camp project Andalucía. Iri has a kind and hilarious character but is also a sharp heavy hitter behind the scenes making Iri the perfect project manager for our on going Andalusian Surf Camp - ( Ben & Elena )
Heff is our big black Labrador and the love of our lives, he is the happiest, funniest, friendliest, greediest, naughtiest not so little, disobedient pup out there! on the coolest & quietest of days you might see him out and about losing the never ending battle of sneaking up on the really not so unsuspecting seagull, you might even see him paddle boarding with us on the estuary. The one thing you'll never see! is Heff doing is what he's told! A bit like "Fenton the Labrador" (Youtube sensation) - ( The Family )
