Riptide - Amelia Island


Toby Brown, owner of Riptide Amelia, started his career as a Physical Education teacher and studied Kinesiology. He realized he had a passion to work with people and decided to test the waters of the hospitality industry. Toby worked with the recreation team at Ritz-Carlton, Reynolds Plantation where he met contacts that later brought him to Amelia Island. He and his wife Ashleigh immediately fell in love with Florida’s coastline. It was then they decided to use the knowledge of recreation and training in hospitality to make the dream of Riptide a reality.
