About Quinn

Quinn Carson grew up in the midwest skateboarding, snowboarding, and wakeboarding. He longed for more adventure than the midwest had to offer and was drawn to California by the ocean and the mountains.

Shortly after moving he became a surf instructor, climbing guide and founder of the surf adventure company Eat Sleep Surf. Teaching is Quinn's way of giving to others the joys of climbing and surfing that he never had growing up. He knows what it is like to be new to climbing and discover it for the first time, and he nurtures this discovery in every adaptive climber. Quinn gets great joy out of helping climbers reach goals that others might have thought were out of reach.

Facility Waiver

All participants (climbing, fitness or yoga) must have a signed waiver. Minors (17 years and younger) must have a waiver signed by one of their parents or their legal guardian (sorry, aunts and uncles and older siblings, you've got to have Mom and Dad do it). You can also fill it in when you come at one of our waiver terminals, but filling it out online before you come in will make your first check-in easier.
