    Hi. I'm Captain Manny Vargas. I can't wait to show you the epic side of wave riding. 

    I've been traveling the world in search of waves for over 35 years. As a former professional bodyboarder, lifeguard, podcaster, and international announcer for bodyboard and surf competitions, I have a wealth of knowledge that I enjoy sharing with others. In 2003, I began running tours to follow my passion for ocean sports and to continue sharing the stoke. When you are on a surf trip with me, I take out all the worries and hassles that are involved with travel logistics so you can relax while we search for the perfect empty waves. Sharing my decades of ocean knowledge with others is my passion. I can't wait to show you an epic experience.

    Have a look around my website for all the information about Epic trips. Please contact me with any questions that you may have about tour packages, photo/video sessions, and/or video surf coaching. 

    Escape for a bit. Come #doEPICshit
