About The Team

Meet the Team behind Honest Surf! We’re a passionate and diverse group of surfers dedicated to sharing our knowledge and love for the sport.

From wave-obsessed groms to salty sea veterans, our team has a whole load of experience and expertise that we’re excited to share with you.

We’re a fun-loving bunch who don’t take ourselves too seriously unless it’s about helping you improve your time in the water and get the most out of your surfing experience.

So come along and meet the faces behind the Honest Surf.

Ed Yates (Founder/Writer)

Ed created Honest Surf after a nasty wipeout caused a knee injury that kept him out of the water for nearly a year.

Unable to get his surfing fix from the waves he turned his talents to writing and sharing everything he’s learnt over 20+ years of surfing.

Recent physio and rehab mean he can start dipping his toes in the waves again but that won’t stop him from carrying on the great work that started here at Honest Surf.
