Scotts Head Surf School

Scotts Head Surf School - // Australia's surfing coast //

Born and bred in Scotts Head, and having surfed there his whole life, former professional surfer Paul Evans is a co-owner and instructor at Scotts Head Surf School with his brother Ben.

Having been pushed into the very waves he teaches his students on today, Evans began his love affair with the ocean at age five – standing up for the first time at Scotts Point.

From there he achieved more than most recreational surfers ever dream.

Under the high performance tutelage and guide of Matt Grainger (Manly Surf School), Evans quickly became one of Australia’s brightest stars during the late 90s; having consistently placed in the Billabong Pro Junior Series which culminated with a win at the Balin Pro at Gunnamatta Bay.

Then in 1998 to 2000 he competed full-time on the gruelling Association of Surfing Professionals World Qualifying Series where he was well established within the top 100.

While the competitive spirit is long gone, Evans is driven by accomplishment in his students, his surf school and surf shop that offers beginner lessons for groups of all ages and sizes; and an insight into the beautiful Scotts Head.
