About Rick Cowley

I am a surfer, yogi, father, teacher, traveler, writer, and inspiring guide.

Rick CowleyI am also a cancer survivor (leukemia at 21). This turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened to me.


Some info about me:

I grew up in San Diego, California.

I have two kids, they are 4 and 9 years old. They were born at home in Australia where we lived for 8 years.

I’ve lived in three states of Australia (New South Wales, Queensland, WA), California, Baja California,  Indonesia (Bali and Java). I’ve surf traveled extensively in Baja and Mainland Mexico (driven down to Baja countless times and mainland 5 times), Indonesia (Java, Bali, Sumatra, Gilis, Nusa Lembongan, Lombok, Sumbawa, Rote, secret islands), two trips to Europe (France, Spain, Portugal, Canary Islands – Lanzarote and Fuerteventura), Fiji, and Hawaii (Kauai, Maui, Big Island, Oahu).

Here’s an article about a cancer survivors event I spoke at on the Gold Coast of Australia.
