A passion

Founder and instructor Quinn Carson is a midwest boy in a Californian's body. He grew up in Chicago as a wakeboarder, skateboarder and snowboarder. Once he learned to surf everything changed. Quinn now lives in Los Angeles and is spending all his time either in the ocean or the mountains.

After moving to California, Quinn became a surf instructor working for three different surf schools. He became popular because his teaching approach was light-hearted, passionate and effective.  Quinn fell in love with teaching and has since taught surfing in California, Florida, Hawaii, England and Costa Rica.

Quinn has dedicated his career to finding amazing places where you can surf, hike, climb, and experience the ocean and the mountains. After living this dream himself for years, Quinn wanted to share it with others, and Eat Sleep Surf was born. 

Quinn is a certified Wilderness First Responder, AMGA climbing guide, and Red Cross lifeguard/CPR certified.
