What better idea than to combine surfing, adventure, fun, excitement, food, wine, beer and Margaret River all in a one stop shop adventure company.
With over 30 years of combined coaching and guiding experience between them, Scotty and Bree decided to crank up Saturation and share their endless pursuit of a good time with you!
With a zest for life and motivation to show people their true potential, Scotty and Bree have packaged together some incredible adventures in their own backyard that are suited to people of all ages and abilities.
Saturation evolved in 2010 from a natural urge to have as much fun as possible in an informative, exciting, fun, safe and spectacular environment. The major driving force behind this idea was a fella by the name of Scotty Bailey.
Born and bred on the sunny west coast of Scotland, the beach was familiar territory to Scotty. At the age of twelve he was dragged off to a far off land called Australia where his parents settled in the wild west of oz!
Just when he thought things couldn’t get any better, his dad bought him his first surfboard…and the rest is history!
With over 25 years of extensive world travel, adventure guiding and surf coaching experience it only seemed a matter of time before Scotty would share his love of nature, adventure and the ocean with any like minded souls!
Scotty has accredited professional coaching qualifications in surfing, lifesaving, and tennis, and is an affiliated member of Surfing WA, Tennis Western Australia, and the Royal Surf Life Saving Association. He is also a qualified Engineering Surveyor and has worked all over the world on many large projects.
Having spent much of his childhood hanging out and surfing in the Margaret River region, Scotty finally settled in ‘Margs’ and has been there for the past 12 years. It seemed like a natural progression to start a business that encompassed a lot of his passions, hence Saturation was born!
“We live in one of the nicest places on the planet, and to be able to share this with visitors from all around the world is awesome fun. Life is too short, so I love it when people get out of their comfort zone and start living!”
With a very relaxed approach to life and a great sense of humour, Scotty will help to guide you on an amazing adventure. This coupled with plenty of local knowledge, means you will definately make the most of your precious time here in Margaret River.
While most teenage girls were doing girly things, Bree was out surfing with the boys at one of the many local surf spots on her beloved Phillip Island, situated off the coast of Victoria. Born and raised on the Island, surfing is in her blood. Brees dad was an early pioneer of surfing on the Island and her Uncle started one of the first surf shops on Phillip Island called Islantis.
From a young age, Bree surfed competitively and progressed through the ranks both locally and on a state level. During this period, she also started to coach surfing and has done so ever since for some of the largest schools in both Australia and New Zealand.
With a zest for life and an ever present urge for adventure, Bree has travelled the world searching for the best waves and tropical locations on the planet!
Finally settling on the west coast, Margaret River was her natural choice. With some of the most pristine coastline in Australia and the best surf breaks in the world, it seemed like a no brainer!
“I love to travel, experience new cultures and meet new people. If we score great waves along the journey, well thats even better! Living in Margaret River is amazing. It is great to be able to share my love of the ocean and the environment with motivated and happy people from all over the world.”
Holding professional accreditation’s in both Surf Coaching and Surf Life Saving, you are definitely in safe hands when it comes to learning to surf! Bree is also a fully qualified Graphic Designer and adds a super creative element to the Saturation team.
Also a keen yoga practioner, Bree has just started her Surf / Yoga retreats with Saturation and the Margaret River Yoga School. Combined with Bree’s passion for a holistic approach to life and healthy food, these weekend escapes are sure to be a hit!
