Noah Biersack is a young surfer from St Agnes. He was awarded £500 from the Lord Lieutenant’s Fund for Youth in September 2015 towards assistance with coaching costs in order to prepare for the 2016 season. His long term goals are to compete on the World Surfing League Pro Junior Circuit to earn a good world ranking and to be chosen for the Team GB Squad in 2016. Coaching is essential for Noah to compete successfully.
Noah is ranked 8th in the UK in his age group. He was chosen for Team GB under 16 surf squad to represent the UK at the 2015 ISA World Junior Championships in October, in San Diego, California. Unfortunately he had to drop out due to an injury, but a place was guaranteed for him in 2016.
Noah said “Since the Lord Lieutenant’s Fund for Youth has helped me out I have fully recovered from my injury and with the guidance of my physio I am back on track with my surfing. I have spent the £500 on training with my coach Joel Gray from Surf Solutions UK and I feel fully prepared for the coming 2016 season which starts in Portugal on the 21st March. I have been re-selected for the 2016 Team GB Surf Squad and will be training hard for the ISA World Junior Championships which will be held in the Azores, Portugal in October. With the possibility of surfing being included in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics I have motivating goals ahead of me to focus on.”
Noah studies sport and fitness at Truro College and regularly works as a volunteer at Mount Hawke Skate Park helping kids learn to skateboard.
