About your head instructor
Rick has free surfed extensively throughout Australia and Asia, first visiting Bali in 1983. In 2001 he was a semi finalist and quarter finalist in 2000 in the Quiksilver Phuket Contest. Not driven by competing, Rick surfs for the pure stoke and enthusiastically shares this stoke with his students.

Saltwater Dreaming Surf School, which is part of The Saltwater Dreaming Surf Shop, has been in operation since 2000. We are the only accredited surf school in Phuket, so learn to surf with experienced and fully NSSIA certified surfing instructors.

Our instructors are passionate about surfing and the ocean and get great pleasure in helping others to enjoy surfing and the ocean too.

Rick and his team were excellent instructors. They went over safety basics before getting into the water, ran through some practice drills on land, and then took you into the water and gave you real-time instruction. I was able to ride a wave multiple times by the end of the 2-hour introductory session. I wish I could've been in Phuket longer to participate in additional lessons.

It was our first time to try surfing. My husband and my 7 and a half year old son picked up quickly. The waves are perfect for beginners. Rick’s team was great! My son could stand quickly with their help and guidance.
