    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. When on a trip, I take out all the worries and hassles that are involved with the logistics so you can relax while in search of the perfect waves. Sharing the ocean experience is my passion and I hope to see you on a trip soon.

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

    Thank you all so much for this experience! It really was a magical weekend and I feel like I definitely learned so much. I also want to thank you all for capturing me while surfing as it has been such a help with making me better.

    Baja Weekender

    Baja Weekender was one of the most fun weekends I've had. Tons of surf (including some AMAZING photos + videos), superb food and a lot of laughing with a cool group. Thank you Manny!


    Baja Weekender

    Manny is a great guide and whether you've been on many trips or this is your first time, he makes you feel like you've been friends forever. He's very knowledgeable and takes all of the hassle out of traveling. We had a blast surfing, eating good food, and look forward to planning our next tour.
