Ryan’s family started Adventure Sports in 1978, when he was just 5 years old. He has grown up with the business and is a true water-man. In 2009, he met Emily and they fell in love. Today, they have 2 children, Odin and Ophelia, and the family has taken the reigns of this well-oiled machine we know as Adventure Sports.
The Judson family likes to have fun. They like to travel to amazing places to dive, surf, snowboard, and just to taste life.
At any point during the day, you can find Ryan or Emily hanging around the shop doing anything they can do to make your visit as comfortable as possible.
Not only was Dennis a PADI instructor, he was also a certified NAUI and ANDI (Nitrox) Instructor since 1979. He was an international excursion leader, world class beach/camp chef, and swim instructor and trainer. Dennis was very popular with the children he instructed and his distinct laugh and seal bark is missed immensely across the swim deck everyday!
PADI, NAUI Instructor. Retired Emeritus. International excursion leader and perhaps the most interesting woman in the universe and beyond. You are missed! We love you Ginny!
