green snap 1999x500 - SurfJitsu


The North Shore brand was born out of high level performance training in surfing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Nick Tiscoe has been surfing for 30 years, and is a highly regarded black belt, competing internationally in both sports.

We are blessed to be located in a beautiful part of the country, in Cornwall. Newquay is surf city UK and we have in excess of seven fantastic surfing beaches on our doorstep. SurfJitsu is the heart of our day to day life!

In addition to our locality, Nick competed and taught surfing for eighteen years, and whilst he doesn’t run his own surf school anymore, he is well connected to arrange your surfing experience.
