About Rick Cowley

I am on a mission to help people live fulfilling lives through bringing their important dreams into reality.

I was diagnosed with leukemia at 21 years old; it was one of the best things that ever happened to me. In 2010 I ran the first SURF LIFE Retreat in Australia– a yoga & surf retreat for young adult cancer survivors, to help them be empowered by their cancer experience and to live lives of purpose, presence and dreams. I ran five of those retreats between 2010 – 2012. In 2012 the Flow of Life moved me to Bali and my dream of getting paid to be myself and do exactly what I love became a reality when I ran the first Bali Yoga Surf Retreat open to the general public. I have now run 17 Bali Retreats.

I was raised in San Diego, CA by parents who get more and more amazing every year! I have traveled the world surfing.  I speak Spanish and Indonesian. I lived in Australia for 8 years before moving to Bali in 2012. I am the father of two beautiful, powerful, next-level kids (4 and 9 years old) who were born at home in Australia. I love surfing and yoga I appreciate this adventure of being alive.

My Life is amazing :) Join me for the ride!

Enough serious stuff, it’s all about fun anyway… watch my clip for Medicine For The People’s “Budding Trees” music video. Bali, 2013.
