Joe Rickabaugh

I am Joseph Rickabaugh and I am a 25-year-old surfer from Agoura California!!

I started surfing at a very young age because my dad was a surfer! It wasn’t until I was about 13 years old though that I dropped all other sports and just started surfing!! I think my favorite part about surfing and what keeps the stoke alive is being able to ride so many different types of boards!! It’s what makes surfing so awesome for me is getting to try different boards see how they turn different, bottom turn different all the differences between the wave machines!!

I currently work at Malibu Makos Surf Camp teaching people how to surf which is so awesome and when I am not there I am lifeguarding at Zuma or Malibu!!

I have been fortunate enough to get to travel to Australia, Asia, Mexico and Hawaii for surfing and surf contest!! It’s such a treat being able to travel the world and getting to surf along the way!!

Surfing to me is my life!! My life revolves around surfing and I am lucky that my friends and family are surfers as well it’s such a treat and I hope I am able to surf till the day I die!!!
