Ignacio Echandi

The Gaucho in our crew! Nacho studied Business Administration in Buenos Aires and knows his way around surf breaks all over Latin America, Indo & Fiji. A keen explorer, he also had a couple of waves in the Maldives, Morocco, Europe, NZ, OZ & Easter Island! Nacho's favorite surf destination is the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia; however, he will provide you Stormrider guide-like knowledge on any of the dreamy surf areas he manages. Our LUEX in-house barista always makes sure he helps people with anything that might contribute to their best surf vacation ever.

Giulia Manfrini

Our Italian bundle of energy has been part of the LUEX family since 2017. Giulia studied Law in Torino but figured out pretty soon that courtrooms and suits aren't really her style. She is working her magic on people interested in trips to the Maldives, Portugal, and Philippines. If she's not dominating at Nias - her favorite wave ever, she is helping people from all over the world to find the best trip that suits their style, ability, and preference. Want to make her smile? Book a trip to one of her favorite destinations and her face lights up!

Martin Jenner

Our Head of Sales travel is a true board rider. From starting out skating as a kid back home in the UK, to snowboarding in the European Alps and Canada, to chasing waves all across the globe, Mister Jenner has done it all. Now spending his time flipping between the mountains and the ocean, Martin is your go-to guy for Snow Travel and Maldives Surf Trips.

James Colston

Our latest UK import James is an expert on the French way of life. Punchy beach breaks, French cuisine or snowboarding in the Alpes - Monsieur Colston knows it all. James is your man if you are after a surf trip somewhere in Europe, the Maldives or Sri Lanka. He loves barrels, especially when they break fast, hollow and over sand. Mundaka anyone?!

Tim Heising

The driving force behind your dreamy trips! LUEX is Tim's brainchild and the result of years of traveling, surfing, and freeskiing. A passionate world nomad, Tim has lived in Europe, Australia, and Northern California, and is no stranger to the best lineups, both surf, and snow all over Europe, Mexico, Hawaii, Indonesia, and South Africa either! A lover of warm water, Tim takes care of our guests wanting to score an epic trip on a surf charter in the Maldives. Better than any online surf guide, Tim knows all the ins and outs to surfing in the Maldives as a result of "too many trips to remember" to the small tropical paradise in the Indian Ocean.
