Junior Surf Coach
Junior Development Coach
Kane first started surf lifesaving in 1985 in Devonport on Tasmania‘s North west coast.
At a very young age although weather conditions were very different to what we enjoyed today he was instantly drawn to the ocean, and quickly fell in love with the ocean through surf lifesaving and surfing.
Throughout his early years he represented Tasmania in state teams and travelled right around the country to compete at Aussie titles gaining some medals along the way. As he moved through the cadet ranks he chose to focus on board paddling and was proud to take out the gold at state titles in the under 21 division.
Fast forward to 2010 and out of all of the clubs on the southern Gold Coast he chose TH&C to give his daughters a wealth of knowledge in the ocean and hasn’t looked back.
For many years he assisted and then became age manager of two of his daughter’s age groups from there he was doing water safety at most sessions and two years ago was approached and asked if I would be interested in a coaching role of course he jumped at the opportunity.
Kane thoroughly enjoys his coaching and gains a huge amount of satisfaction in seeing our children build skills and knowledge of the ocean.
Kane is very proud of our wonderful little club and all of the amazing people that make it the best club in the country.
Hence, he is proud to coach, compete in masters in water and beach events along with being boardriding Captain.
