Meet the Head Coach
Head Coach Kim 'Eulo' Eulenstein is an all round water woman with a life-time spent swimming in pools, open ocean and surfing around the world. In her youth Kim trained with a Sydney swim club for over ten years competing in hundreds of carnivals around Australia including CHS, Metro, State and National Championships. She has attended countless training camps, workshops and high performance programs over the years.
In her early teens Kim was enticed into swimming for North Steyne Surf Club in a range of open ocean swims, iron-woman competitions and their branch, state and nationals teams. Following years of swimming down the black line, training the body to absolute failure and racking up a stack of medals, hours at competitions and travel time, Kim threw in the towel on competitive pool and ocean swimming and continued her passion for free-surfing and free-diving.
After completing her HSC, Kim moved into studies at Charles Sturt University while coaching at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre. Learn to Swim, Adult Beginner, Stroke Development and Junior Squad Development were her favourite programs. She also worked heavily in the administration side and worked pool deck lifeguarding alongside her former SLS Captain, Jon Cowell.
Over the past decade Kim has worked across various roles in the sports industry including an early gig at a large sports management company in Olympic Park. They worked heavily in NRL, AFL, Basketball, Soccer and Union. She has worked for a variety of state sporting bodies including Masters Swimming NSW as well as the international swimming brand 'Zoggs'.
In 2012 Kim launched Girl Surf Network, the largest womens surf platform in the world which focuses on the active promotion of womens surfing around the world. She has run countless training camps and coaching seminars with WSL World Tour Surfers across Australia, Fiji and the Solomon Islands.
Kim is the current Pan Pacific Masters Games Open Water (1km) Champion following a win on the Gold Coast, beating the next best place getter by over 30 seconds.
Over the past ten years Kim has worked with a range of high performance athletes in WQS and WSL surfing, winter Olympians, professional boxing, triathlon, rock climbing, big wave surfing and NRL. She is a published author with book sales across 30+ countries and features in Redbull Bulletin, Swellnet, Sydney Morning Herald, Cosmopolitan, Smorgasboarder and Joyce Magazine.
Speaking with a large variety of high performance, competitive athletes in recent years prompted Kim to create a specific swimming program that covers mind, body and soul. Ocean fitness, swim technique, paddle technique, general fitness, breath-holding, water competency, general water skills, board control, breath control, power and drills being just some of the focal points of her program. There is a strong focus on breath work, hypoxic training, anxiety, stress, panic management, relaxation, mindset and self awareness. On top of that Kim is a swim technique specialist that can fine tune even the strongest of pool, ocean, triathlon swimmers and competitive freedivers.

Kim works with a range of cross training athletes in swimming, surfing, surf lifesaving, ocean swimmers, triathletes, NRL, boxing, MMA, snow, skate, rock climbing, endurance athletes and of course, the weekend warriors.
