Growing up in Southern California under the tutelage of a afther who surfed and understood proper form and style, Sean was raised on the beaches from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara surfing the iconic waves that helped establish California beach culture back in the 1950's and 1960's. Traveling under sposorship throughout his twenties, Sean was fortunate enough to work with world-renown surf photographers to achieve a fair amount of industry support and recognition. Ironically, his focus today has reveryed back to his initial surf interests as a youth; mainly hanging at the beach, riding waves, and having as much fun as possible.

With years of experience in and around the water, Sean offers surf mentorship from first-time surfers to 25-year vets. His MINDFULRIDER surf program is an authentic surf experience not found elsewher; with a focus on safety in and out of the water, wave selection, positioning and style, maximizing wave count, history and respect.
