Our Story


Ryan Croteau

After many years of teaching surf lessons in Southern California, Ryan Croteau, founder of Croteau Surf Excursions, often heard students saying “I went on a surf trip to this epic destination but I wasn’t learning to surf the way I do with you.” This feedback is exactly what inspired Ryan to launch Croteau Surf Excursions; space where his students can get out of the country, immerse themselves in a foreign culture and learn from their favorite coach. Ryan has traveled the world in search of the perfect wave while making connections and friendships in each country. These connections allow him to create epic, authentic experiences for his students that want the most out of surfing in a foreign country.
