Ryan was wonderful! My husband and I took a lesson from him yesterday and after calling him, he offered to pick us up from our location and drive us to the surf school a few miles down the road, located at the Shores Resort. This was extremely convenient as we did not have a rental car. After we practiced standing up on land, he took us to the waves and wouldn't stop working with us until we were standing up and riding the waves in! He was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to surf in Daytona Beach.

My first time doing surfing lessons, and Ryan and Glen made it so much fun and safe! You get hands on experience directly with pro surfers, so they are very knowledgeable and professional. It's a great value too because they gave us extra waves. I can't wait to come back!

My daughter had never been to a real beach before, so obviously never even touched a surf board, but she was very interested in having a surfing experience. Ryan's confidence in being able to get new students up on the board in your very first lesson intrigued us so we signed her up for an hour and a half lesson. It was magical to watch her, and the other students too, pop up on their boards and look good doing it. She had so much fun we absolutely recommend Ryan and his team to anyone even thinkng about wanting to try surfing for the first time, or wanting to further their surfing knowledge, as Ryan is so willing to share his experiences as a professional champion, he really makes it fun and exciting!!!

WE LOVE RYAN

We had a wonderful time with Ryan for my daughters birthday!!!
He was extremely professional, patient and knowledgeable about his craft. He went the extra mile to make sure my daughter was comfortable and safe, and gave her feedback after every wave.
He even made the experience extra special by letting us surf with her. (This is the perfect Covid birthday experience because it’s limited contact, and you’re able to social distance at the beach).
I have to brag because I caught the longest wave of the day after only one lesson! It was the best feeling ever :)

Thanks for your magic and beautiful spirit Ryan

Our 11 year old granddaughter’s surfing lesson was a huge success at Vast Oceans. With only one previous lesson elsewhere, Ryan was able to Immediately tailor her class to her ability, age and experience level. He related really well to her and she was able to get up on the board about a dozen times with three or four really good rides. Ryan Ragan is truly a pro. He is passionate about what he does and it shows! I am so happy we found him first; he is well worth the reasonable price of the lesson. We will not hesitate to use him again and could not recommend him more highly.

Ryan was awesome, we went out for 1.5 hours and I was able to get up 6 times! He had everything planned from the right board, right spot, and a photographer that captured all of the great moments. He was extremely knowledgeable and patient. I previously had a lesson with a different instructor and was not able to get up and felt very discouraged about surfing, but after surfing with Ryan I can’t wait to go again! He’s the best instructor and I totally recommend him for any level of surfer that wants to have a great time!

My son Wade had a lesson this past weekend with Ryan and absolutely LOVED it! Ryan is great teacher with an awesome personality and made it a really fun experience for my son to try out surfing for the first time! He really guided Wade to have the confidence to jump in the ocean and learn to surf. It was so nice to watch! Wade is looking forward to the next lessons. I highly recommend Ryan if you ever want to learn how to surf and have a really fun day!!

For my birthday my parents surprised me with surfing lessons and I was super excited, but I was also worried..I thought I would be completely horrible since I didn’t start at age 4or 5.
He taught us the best ways to get on a board and start riding. I say us because he let my parents join me in the ocean! He was very encouraging and gave us the best advice to help with the next wave.
(Also something I should say is its wasn’t too Early or too late to learn and I’m 11 😂)
He taught us there is no age and it’s never too early or late to learn how to surf. He is a great coach I’ve never surfed in my life and after just one lesson I can catch a wave! Thank you Coach Ryan for the best Birthday ever I’ll never forget!🥳

I had a terrific time learning to surf with Ryan! We learned some basics outside of the water and then spent a lot of time in the water. He was enthusiastic and detailed. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn how to surf!
