Our Athletes

We are proud to work with the following athletes, helping them stay pain-free as they pursue their dreams.

Jordy Smith is a household name in the global surfing community and we are very lucky to have him on our team. Jordy won the World Junior Championships  in 2006, the World Qualifying Series in 2007 and has finished runner up in the World Surf League twice (2010 and 2016). 
Some tough luck with injuries has seen Jordy struggle to dominate the way some expected but with him looking leaner, fitter and stronger in 2019 he is largely regarded as a front runner for this years title.

 Samuel is a product of the surfing Mecca that is Jeffrey's Bay in the Eastern Cape. Now 18, Samuel has enjoyed some great success in the ocean having won the Eastern Cape provincial championships along with placing in the top 10 in the country regularly. Having started competing in the World Qualifying Series in 2018 and getting some valuable experience, this young gun promises to be someone to watch for the future. 
Not only does he make the most of the ocean when the swell is good but also has a keen interest and is actively involved in ocean conservation.

Hannah is a 17 year old swimmer hailing from the Eastern Cape in South Africa who promises to have a long and successful swimming career ahead of her.
At the age of just 16 Hannah had been awarded her South African colours after winning gold in the 100m back stroke at the 2018 SA Youth Nationals. She has also excelled in open water swimming having placed in the top 10 in the country for the 3 and 5 kilometre events. Just because excelling in two categories isn't enough for Hannah, she has also placed in the top 10 in her age group for Biathlon racing.

This young Durbanite packs an achievements list longer than most 30 year olds boast, and he is only 17. Connor's sport of choice is surf - lifesaving and just in 2019 he has won multiple events across South Africa, across disciplines and across age groups. He has also competed for Northcliffe Surf Lifesaving Club in the Australian series where has medalled in the surf swim discipline and further grabbed a handful of top 5 finishes. 
Keep an eye out for this youngster as he continues to rip up the life saving scene.
