Meet the Surf Sheffield Team

Where the Passion Begins

From people who have never surfed to instructors we are a diverse team with a range of talents and a shared love for the sea

President

Minh Bradshaw



Hiya, my name is Minh, and I will be President this year!

 

It has been such a journey to see the club grow, having founded it just two years ago, it's been incredible to meet and work with such amazing people.

We get told that what people love about surf is how friendly and inclusive the club is. The club's aim has always been to increase accessibility to surfing and build an outdoor, ocean-loving community around it.

I am proud to say that over half of the club had never surfed before joining, and I am excited to work with committee to get even more people in the ocean this year!

Charity Sec

Mikaila James

Hey, I’m Mikaila and I’m moving into my 4th year studying Structural Engineering and Architecture.

I’m so excited to be charity sec next year and raise money for some incredible charities such as surfers against sewage, expect to see gigs and other events in the future, stay tuned!

 

My friend introduced me to surfing a few years ago but I didn’t get started properly until going to Moliets in Summer with surf Sheff.

Being landlocked the society makes trips to the sea more accessible.. I never thought I’d be popping to the beach midweek from Sheffield of all places! 

 

I’ve met some amazing people through the society and it now feels like a family at uni so I’d highly encourage everyone to get involved this year :)

Surf Sheff Advisor

James Sanderson

Hi Surf Sheffield! I'm James and I'll be acting as an advisor to Surf Sheffield this year.

After setting up the society in 2020 and a year as the vice president, I can see Surf Sheffield developing into the vision that we originally had!

Created from the ground up we forge our own path and take the shape that our members dictate; I'm here to provide a few words of wisdom (I hope!) so that can happen.

 

I'm looking to seeing you all and hopefully catching some waves in the upcoming year, surfs up!
