About Us

RibRide is home to a small but dedicated team, who love what they do. When at work, they are a highly professional (!), hard working and friendly bunch, who are committed to making your visit as enjoyable and memorable as possible.

When not at work, you will find them out enjoying the amazing outdoor environment we have on our doorstep. Whether it is efoiling, kite surfing, mountain biking, windsurfing, sailing, paddleboarding, kayaking, surfing, running, cycling or swimming, Anglesey and North Wales really do provide the perfect natural playground for them to escape to after a busy day at work. Well it is either that or the pub!


Founded in 2005, by Phil Scott and Tom Ashwell, RibRide initially started out running trips from Victoria Dock in Caernarfon, before relocating to the Moel y Don Jetty, Anglesey in 2007. In 2014 the whole operation moved to where we are today at Porth Daniel, Menai Bridge.
