surf in Seal Beach
Rick lives in a surf cottage in Seal Beach, California, visit here.
He’s a retired water man. In love with the ocean for over 50 years ( he’s been a Surfrider Foundation member since the beginning of the group).
He’s traveled every year for over 30 years. Indonesia, Tahiti, Fiji, Hawaii, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Nicaragua, etc. He knows what a local is able to offer you on a surf trip….local knowledge. He’s the perfect S&S member, open minded, easy going, surf stoked, and with a strong surf tripping experience!
Rick would still like to travel to many places he hasn’t visited yet, like Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, Maldives. Also on the bucket list and hopefully in the loop are Europe, NZ, Auz, and Africa too! Rick is also interested in finding congenial surf traveling partners leaving the US on shorter trips. Being retired he only needs a week or two lead time to get up and go!
Since having knee problems / replacements, he rides a bodyboard almost daily to keep playing in the waves and stay in sync with our Mother Ocean.
Because of on going knee problems, Rick doesn’t plan to realize any extended surf trip soon, but he knows that hosting other surfers is in a way surf traveling, especially when surfers get together to talk story. He would be delighted to host surf travelers from all around the world.His words :
"I am willing to host visiting surfers for short periods, and maybe longer if they clean up after themselves and share food costs. Just had a group of young traveling Auzzies who stayed a week and they were great"
Swap and surf is proud to put together surfers like Rick, an open minded water man, in love with surfing and curious to meet people from different places from around our beautiful world.
