Our Instructors

Andy Joyce

Turning his love for the water into a career, he started up Surf Steps, his own Surf and SUP training centre in 2005. He now directs the business, and a very happily married Father of 2.

“My dream of a more water filled life was realised through passion, hard work and vision. I see my role is to help people achieve theirs too!”

Emma Joyce

After running Surf Steps Surf School along side husband Andy, Emma has built booking sytems, websites and accounting solutions and is looking forward to assisting others with their journey.

“I love the flexibility and control of understanding the sytems implemented within our business, so when things go wrong, as they inevitably do, we can identify and hopefully fix the issue quickly. ”
