A man accused of exposing himself to children and adults in Tofino, B.C., has been identified as a 23-year-old professional surfer from Australia.

Mitch Coleborn, the 124th-ranked surfer in the world, was on Vancouver Island last week competing in the O'Neill Cold Water Classic.

The competition wrapped up on Thursday and RCMP say they responded to several complaints Friday morning of a man exposing himself.

Coleborn has been charged with indecent exposure.

He is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 1.
