Ted Ganung is a surfer/musician who views surfing not just as a water sport but a lifestyle and philosophy that keeps us more connected and in tune with nature. He started surfing at the age of 14 when his family moved from the East Coast to Honolulu, Hawaii and he quickly became addicted to riding waves. Soon Ted was exploring every wave on the South Shore from Ala Moana, Black Point, Kewalo Basin, and more. Without a doubt Ted's favorite break was Suicides, a long left hand reef break that connects on the inside to a sandbar.
After graduating from college, Ted moved to New York City to immerse himself in the music business. He has found great joy surfing at places on the East Coast like Rockaway, Long Beach, Rhode Island, and Maine. Most recently, Ted was able to score some epic waves in Guanacaste, Costa Rica at Playa Avellanas and Playa Marbella. Now he is super stolked to be able to share his joy for surfing as an instructor at Sierra Surf School!
