With over 40 years of collective experience, from retail to product development, magazine editing and equipment testing, to coaching and event organising, there is little that the Surf Doctor team hasn’t done in the marine leisure industry.
Surf Doctor is the e-commerce name of The Official Test Centre Ltd (OTC) - a windsurfing centre set up in 2006 to provide the opportunity for its clients to test and compare the latest kit on the market before they decided which one is for them. This vision has grown organically into what the OTC is today - a focal point for windsurfing, windfoiling, kitesurfing, SUPing and OneWheeling in a picturesque corner of Jurassic Coast Dorset. Our mission statement has also evolved, with the introduction of our RYA/BSUPA/BKSA/AALA recognised school (Osprey Training Centre), and the gradual realisation that we’re in a unique position to retail watersports equipment too.
More people loving life on the water and, more importantly, on the right kit for their desires and ability is the focus. There is a wealth of kit out on the market yet a dearth of opinions on which is right for whom. That is where we step in, spending time sorting the wheat from the chaff, and offering a clear guidance through the myriad of options available. We are a business so we have to ‘feed the monkey’ but we’re here to help, advise and support your aquatic adventure, be it on a windsurf board, touring SUP or foiling stick. We have the water literally right on our doorstep, so it would be rude for us not to take advantage and get out on the water to try it for ourselves!
