The North Shore brand was born out of high level performance training in surfing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Nick Tiscoe has been surfing for over 25 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 also teaches surfing and runs his own surf school at Mawgan Porth, just outside Newquay. Nick has over twenty five years surfing experience and over twelve years teaching surfing as well as competing extensively.
