AUSTRALIA. Glen Hardy is based at Magnetic island off Townsville in Northern QLD, Australia which has the best surf in North QLD. Glen is a nomadic worker, following the seasons around the world - Europe, USA and OZ and is currently working in Norway.
If it’s a water-based sport Glen has tried it, from navigating rapids on the Tully River, QLD, to Hawaiian canoe racing and surfing perfect point breaks all to satisfy his love for adrenalin-based water sports.
“I have been addicted to surfing for 37 years. I have the wrong body shape and size for this sport, oops no one told me ( 6’3” and 110 kilos ), I have wanted to surf since I was 5 years old , but growing up in Far North Queensland restricted that !! so I played Rugby League as a front row forward”
Glen is a qualified ASI surfing and Sup instructor and has been a professional paddler for 30 years, touring the world as a white-water Raft guide and surfing instructor for 20 years.
“Being an ASI instructor has enabled me to share my surfing buzz with others, I have run my own surf school with the help of ASI and also do SUP. I dream of good waves in warm water, I have saltwater in my blood!! Surfing is my religion, I love it so much, I happily pass on my knowledge and understanding for others to enjoy it as well. I also work with people with mental health issues, introducing them to a love of Ocean sports as a way of healing their bodies and minds, guess what? It works! Thank you ASI for supporting me. Aloha” - Glen
