Hello, My name is Caleb Rickett . I am the founder of North Coast Surf School. I am 42 years of Roman calendar age and have been surfing for 25 years. I have grown up surfing the waves of Mendocino County.  My hobbies are surfing, hiking, and writing. Of course, surfing is my favorite of them all. Surfing to me is about connection with the natural Earth and its elements ,Surfing also improves your physical health and mental clarity. Every time I go into the ocean I feel awakened. Surfing in fact saved my life at the age of 16, it was the right path that has led me where I am today. Surfing changes mindsets and gives peace. I highly recommend Learning to surf, it is an endeavor that will bring you excitement, action, and grounding.
