Ryan is simply amazing! 🤩 Not only does he know what he is doing but it’s more the relationship that he develops is what is incredible. My son is super shy and quiet but Ryan made him feel comfortable to shine. He... completely went out of his way with our whole experience, to the point that my husband is on board with looking to move back to Florida 🥳 We have done other surf schools but Ryan delivers so much more than just surf. He brings the whole package. Our week in Florida was amazing because of him! 😍🏄‍♂️🌊read more

Ryan was incredible!!! My 12year old daughter LOVED her lesson. Ryan communicated very well, worked with our limited schedule, supplied the boards and everything needed, and interacted amazingly with my daughter. He... even sent photos shortly after her lesson. We will do lessons every time we are in Daytona. I highly recommend him to anyone wanted to try to surf.Thank you Ryan you rock!!! 🌊 🏄‍♂️read more

I have never surfed before in my entire life before trying Vast Oceans Surf and SUP, but after only a week, I can confidently surf waves on my own. Ryan is an excellent coach and teacher. His tips are very helpful and... easy to understand, and he is very motivational and positive. You can tell how passionate he is about surfing and teaching this sport, and I had so much fun. Thanks to Ryan, I am very excited for my future with surfing. I highly recommend his camp to anyone who is interested in learning how to surf, regardless of their age or experience.read more

Ryan was great he spent a lot of time with my grand daughter making her feel comfortable. She was able to pop up on her first time in Ocean. Ryan’s patience was ideal for all ages. His technique was ideal and his ... training was easy to understand and gave plenty of time to practice everything he taught. My grand daughter loved it and can’t wait to continue her surfing going forward. Thank You Ryan for a fun experience to share between her & I.read more

What an incredible experience! My daughter who’s been a swimmer but never surfed and her friends tried a surf lesson from Ryan and his buddy, Jamie today at a beautiful Daytona beach. They went above and beyond to teach... our kids with an attention to detail for individual needs and lively, warm and courteous manners which is hard to come by from a regular big surfing school. If you can’t decide which one to choose from in the area, there’s no need to wonder further. Vast Oceans Surf and SUP that is. They are real pro surfers who actually teach (not just supervise) and you won’t regret with what you get from them. My daughter was able to stand on her board and surfed on day 1!read more

My family and I had an amazing time with Ryan today! It was me, my husband and our three girls. We felt super comfortable with him right off the bat and he took the time to explain and talk with each one of us... individually when needed. I can honestly say that all five of us got up on the board! It was great family time and we had so much fun! We appreciate the time that Ryan spent with us! Great company!!read more

Awesome experience!!! Ryan was an awesome coach for me and my wife. He made sure we stayed safe and taught us how to start surfing quickly with style! His style of teaching made it really easy to learn and we had a... great time. He also hooked us up with a great price on a new surfboard and gave us some sweet tips on local places to go. 100% recommend!!!read more

Today was my first time ever being anywhere near a surfboard, so I was more than a little nervous. Ryan was absolutely amazing though. He talked us (myself and my husband) through everything, step by step. He made sure... we knew the basics before we even walked down to the water and critiqued everything we did in the water in such a positive way. I'm not an athletic person and the waves are huge today so I got tired faster than my husband, but I wanted to keep going as long as I could because he made it so much fun. Not to mention he is just a super cool dude to be around. He makes you want to listen to everything he has to say because he's just so awesome to be around. That's a huge bonus in an instructor. All in all I had an AWESOME experience. The price was also amazing, but I'd pay just about anything to have another lesson with Ryan. He was just that good. I can't wait for our next trip to Daytona so we can have more surfing lessons.10/10 HIGHLY RECOMMENDread more

Ryan is an incredible surfboarding instructor. I loved his class today. It was meant for 90 minutes but Ryan was happy to teach for 30 more minutes as the waves started picking up. He was very safety oriented... instructor. He taught me all the basics and safety measures for a safe and fun surfing. I highly recommend him for his classes.read more

Ryan was a great instructor- patient, fun, and a great communicator. He is the ultimate professional. We were expecting great things based on the reviews and it was as great as everyone else has said. His love and... commitment to a sport he’s spent his whole life perfecting was very evident. Great day and wonderful memories! Thanks!!read more

I reached out to a couple places before I found Ryan R. of Vast Oceans. He called me back and stayed in contact before our lessons to make sure we felt comfortable with him, the conditions and the experience. He was... patient, friendly, fun, encouraging, and professional. He kept working with us to make sure we were safe, comfortable and got the most out our lessons. It couldn’t have been a best experience. If I had more time I would go again but maybe an ECO Tour for a different experience. It was peaceful, fun and beautiful on the ocean. Thank you Ryan so much for an AMAZING morning of paddle boarding!!!read more

I contacted Ryan to set up a paddleboard tour as a gift to my friends for their honeymoon! He was so helpful and kind. He kept in touch with updates and gave them special attention. I would recommend him and his... business to anyone. If I ever travel to Daytona, his tour will be first on my list of things to do!read more

We had so much fun learning to surf with Ryan. We had a group of 6 and still got so much individual attention. He paid great attention to safety and after only an hour all 6 of us were able to get up on the surf board.... We had so much fun that we will be going back later in the week. Definitely recommend Ryan if you want to give surfing a try.read more

I had the most fun learning to surf today! I have never tried surfing before and loved every minute of my experience. Brian instructed our group and he was the most encouraging and supportive instructor ever! He made me... feel comfortable, confident, and ready to take on every wave! I would absolutely schedule again! Best day ever! 🏄‍♀️😍🥰read more

Ryan is THE best !!! I contacted Ryan last minute for lessons for my 3 kids ages 7 ,8 and 10. He responded back right away and was more than accommodating. Ryan was friendly, fun, and professional. You can truly tell... he loves what he does. I have gotten surf lessons for my kids in the past and Ryan has been by far the best!! He takes his time with his instruction on the beach and makes sure everyone has the right movements down even before you hit the water. In the water he takes the time to teach and critique so your not just standing up but really riding the waves! His instruction and teaching style were above and beyond what my kids experienced with other lessons. My kids popped up and surfed waves, but more importantly, they were all smiles and had tons of fun! I would highly recommend Ryan for anyone looking for a surf instructor.read more
