Meet Your Surf Coach

Meet Tehillah McGuinness, a South African pro-surfer, middle and long distance National Running Champion and founder of Ohana® Surf & Fitness. Tehillah is a sponsored athlete, who formerly placed top ten in the South African Surf Championships and ranked as high as #3 on the UK Pro Surf Tour as well as top 10 on the European Longboard Rankings. 

Tehillah’s calm, patient and fun-filled teaching style has helped to inspire hundreds to engage in a lifelong passion for surfing. Tehillah loves introducing first-timers to the wonderful world of surfing. She also revels in seeing the progress made by returning students. 

Tehillah’s number one goal is for her and her team to create an environment where students feel safe and at ease in the water. After all, this type of relaxed and open atmosphere is how we make the most progress and is how surfing should be experienced.

Tee and her team of surf coaches are all internationally qualified as well as trained lifeguards, with a lifetime of experience both in and out of the water.

Join Tee as she shares her love and passion of surfing with you, regardless of your experience, level or age.

I can’t begin to express how blessed I feel to have chosen to surf with Ohana. With so many surf coaching options out there, it’s difficult to know which one to choose. I was lucky enough to spend a week surfing with Tee, who is one of a kind and truly made me feel like family. Her endless patience, encouragement and professional teaching was outstanding and I can’t wait to go back.
