Andy King is a name that’s synonymous with the progression of competitive surfing in Australia. I fell in love with Kingy’s coaching in the new Apple+ Series, Make or break! If you haven’t watched it, please do. Andy grew up around the sport all his life, obsessed with the ocean.
Kingy coached Mick Fanning to three world titles and played a massive role in helping Mick navigate the highs and lows of professional sports. He doesn’t love the term coach, but he has led (or coached) some of the biggest names in surfing, such as Michel Bourez, Julian Wilson, Adriano De Souza, Gabriel Medina, and me, Miff Rennie.
Andy’s shoulder-to-shoulder approach and high-performance thinking have been recognised across different sports and cultures; he believes that trust is the catalyst for taking an athlete beyond their limits.
As a former pro surfer, his passion, energy, and focus on mindset come from his devotion to human potential and an undeniable love of the ocean (and riding waves).
I hope you enjoy this chat with my private surfing coach (who doesn’t know yet), Andy King!
