Trent Munro Surf Academy - // Australia's surfing coast //

Trent started surfing before he could swim, tucked up on the front of his dad’s surfboard.

By age six he’d joined the family competing at Scotts Head Boardriders’ Club in northern NSW.

Graduating to national competition, Trent won the 1997 Australian Junior Title, blitzing the field with wins in four events before moving through the World Qualifying Series (WQS) and on to the elite ASP World Tour in 2000.

Winner of the ASP’s “Rookie of the Year” title in 2001, Trent worked his way into the top 20 and in 2005 finished sixth in the world rankings.

Among numerous highlights during 10 years on the pro tour, Trent’s proudest moment was holding the famous clanging bell trophy aloft as winner of the 2005 Rip Curl Pro at Australia’s Bells Beach.

Having added an Ocean Safety Surf Coach Award and Advanced Resuscitation Certificate to his 20 years' experience as a competitive surfer, Trent is among the best-credentialed surf coaches in NSW.
