Claire is from the east coast of Canada (Nova Scotia). An avid winter surfer who mostly surfs in a 6mm wetsuit and in the snow. In the winter months the water temp sits around 1C degree (33.8F).

From Monday to Thursday (organization has a 4 day work week), Claire works as the Senior Strategic Communications Manager for an environmental charity based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Claire has an undergraduate degree with honours in Sociology and an Advanced Diploma in Public Relations. 

Between January 2024 and March, Claire has lost 90 percent of her hair to alopecia. Alopecia, is an autoimmune disease that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles. It impacts two percent of the world population, and the causes are still relatively unknown, but some believe it’s genetic or caused by stress. Other than your hair falling out it does not impact your overall health (though there can be other complications for some).

Froth puppy, stoke goblin, positive vibe warrior, and uncle to Canadian surf groms. I was born and raised by Canadian parents in landlocked London, UK. As an adult, I returned to my motherland and lived in Tofino, where I dedicated myself to surfing, coaching, and competing for the last decade.

I recently moved to Nova Scotia and started my own business, Hurricane Surf Company, with the goal of sharing my knowledge as a professional surf coach.
