Phil Taylor

Phil Taylor




Phil is originally from Western Australia where he grew up surfing big heavy waves. He was a sponsored surfer and competed in many surfing events, winning most of them he entered.

Phil is naturally a very easy person to get along with, it may be from his many years experience as a church pastor where listening and helping people is a natural part of the job.

Phil has been on many trips to The Maldives as a group leader and more recently has started going to The Maldives as a Surf Guide for surf charter boats. People have actually requested his services!
