Sean O’Brien


Sean O’Brien is a professional windsurfer representing Australia on the PWA World Tour. He currently holds the record for the most Australian windsurfing titles won by any windsurfer at 11 titles. Currently living in Warsaw, Poland with his family, Sean is a member of the Severne Sails International Pro Team and the Starboard Dream Team for windsurfing as well as a former Australian Sailing Team coach & mentor, supporting Australian Olympic Team athletes.

Without question, one of Australia’s finest windsurfers; Sean’s skillset also includes coaching, having worked for a number of years as the Queensland State High-Performance Sailing Coach for the Olympic Windsurfing Class and coaching Australian Sailing Team members to Gold at the 2009 ISAF World Cup in Melbourne, Australia.

“Competing on the Windsurfing World Tour over the past 15 years has put incredible stress on my body. One of the most important parts of my training is the work I do OFF the water, to keep strong, fit and prevent injuries. This program is my own personal training program, specifically developed with Nic over the past years for myself and for the athletes I coach. I can do these programs with or without a gym, wherever I am on the planet, with equipment that can fit in my travel bag”.
