Name: Sarah Name: Mike
Position: Shop Manager Position: Front of House Manager
   
A bit about yourself: I started working at TJ’s 4 years ago and am currently managing the shop on the beach. I have always enjoyed the surfing lifestyle no matter what country I am in. I have travelled all around the world to find good weather and waves but always end up back at my home in Cornwall where I have lived all my life. Working within the surf fashion retail industry has given me great grounding for achieving my goal of creating and launching my own swimwear label which we are currently stocking in the shop.  A bit about yourself:  Mike has worked with us for the past two and a half years and brings with him a wealth of experience having managed various restaurants and hotels in Cornwall over the past 20 years. Mike is also a keen surfer and says TJ’s is a great place to work!
   
Why I think TJ's is the best surf shop in the UK: Its beach front location, right on the sand, makes TJ’s a unique genuine surf shop, with genuine staff who surf and have lived in the area all their lives. Customers shop with us year after year as we are a friendly team and give each customer a personal experience.
