An old friend!

Alex trained with Rockley on the Dingy Instructor and Windsurf Instructor Intensive Training Course back in 2012. He then worked a season for Rockley at AzuRivage in 2013 followed by a season at Rockley Point in the summer of 2016. He then returned the following summer as a Centre Senior at AzuRivage.

Achievements and successes

He admits to having had the best three years of his life at Plymouth Marjon University where he received a First Class Honours Degree in Sport Development (Physical Education) and has recently completed his Teacher Training PGCE in Secondary Physical Education at the University of Southampton.

He's also well qualified on the water - RYA Coach Assessor; RYA Dinghy Instructor; RYA Windsurf Instructor; BSUPA Instructor.

In his down time

In his spare time he enjoys getting out on the water as much as possible and spends a lot of time surfing in Devon and Cornwall. His firts love is, however, hockey and plays at Bournemouth Hockey Club where he has played since the age of six. The highlight of his hockey career was playing for the Marjon Uni first team in its varsity game against Plymouth Uni.

He also happens to be a HUGE AFC Bournemouth fan!

Why did he decide to join the Rockley Team

"This role is extremely exciting for me as it is a mix of my two passions - teaching PE and watersports. The opportunity to work in such a unique learning environment is incredible."
