Hi I'm Quinn! I'm founder of Eat Sleep Surf, a surf school and adventure company providing surf lessons and adventure trips throughout Southern California. I’ve been surfing for 15 years, and spend nearly every day in the ocean. Whenever I'm not in the ocean I'm exploring the mountains. I've climbed many of the highest peaks in California.

As a guide and host, I love being with people and sharing adventures together. I come on these trips completely prepared and I will make sure you are comfortable, have everything you need to enjoy the ocean, the mountains, and a night under the stars. My qualifications include CPR, Red Cross Lifeguard, Wilderness First Responder, and American Mountain Guides Association SPI.

Fantastic adventure, highly highly recommend. Quinn is a fantastic surf instructor and all-round top bloke and this was a truly unique weekend - a real highlight among many for me in LA. I didn't expect to find deserted beaches and wilderness in the city but Quinn had access to both. Don't let the price put you off-it's worth every penny.

I cannot say enough good things about Quinn and the 2-day long surf adventure! I travel a lot - both for work and play. I have experienced a lot of different excursions and this was one of the best experiences I've had anywhere. I felt like I was truly seeing Southern California from a local's perspective. Everything was taken care of - down to accommodating for my vegetarian diet on our meals and stopping for coffees when my friend and I were cold getting out of the water. I appreciated the intimate group size and felt like I got a chance to connect with others, while also still getting individual help from Quinn during the surf lesson. He was educated on his craft and both a great teacher and also really fun to be around! The camping overnight was equally amazing - an experience that would have been really difficult to create on my own. I'll definitely be doing adventures with Quinn again when I'm back in the area! If you're on the fence, just book it!
