Surfing Australia: raising the flag

Andy King has been appointed Surfing Australia's new national coach. He replaces Martin Dunn.

King, 36, is a former top 35 WQS surfer and was head coach of the Red Bull Surfing program for the past seven years.

He has worked closely with two-time ASP World Champion Mick Fanning and fellow World Tour competitors Julian Wilson, Adriano de Souza, Michel Bourez and Tiago Pires.

"I'm really excited to be able to move into this role and help the development of surfing in Australia", said King.

"The facilities at the HPC are incredible and having access to all the talented surfers going through there is a great opportunity as is being able to work with the coaching team already there".

Andy King will join Surfing Australia's team of high performance coaches including Sport Science Manager, Dr Jeremy Sheppard, at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre, at Casuarina, in northern NSW.
