Ron spent his childhood in Newport Beach, CA working in his families water sports and boatbuilding business and surfing during his breaks from the store and after school…sometimes during school.

After years sailing everything from Hobie 16’s to classic wooden schooners and super fast 70 footers, he raced to Mexico on his own boat and anchored in Punta de Mita and found  “the place”.

He began paddling for recreation, then racing locally and standup surfing, which is where you will find him any chance he gets.
