Hola & Aloha

We are a family of lifelong local SPI surfers on a mission to share the LOVE of surfing! Our founder, Captain Ryan, has been teaching surfing lessons for over 15 years. In 2016, he and his wife, Erica, organized SurfVive, a non-profit offering free surf lessons and other community outreach programs designed to keep SPI surfviving and thriving. Together with their four kids and awesome team of instructors, we continue our mission one wave at a time!

Truly amazing experience...Ryan provided first timer surfing lessons to two teens but also some individualized attention to our three year old who ended up feeling part of the experience. In addition to a perfect first experience, I should also mention that Ryan was also able to save a life towards the end of the lesson. There was a girl floating who had a seizure that he was able to pull out of the water and save. Highly recommend Ryan, he was amazing!"
