Brian and his team were excellent. Kids (9 and 11) had never surfed. Matt showed them the basics and they were surfing within a few minutes. He was our dedicated instructor for just the two of them and they loved every minute of the 2 hour lesson. He was very patient and did a great job of explaining how to... More

My daughter took one lesson with Brian Jarvis and his team of great teachers last summer, was up on the board in minutes, and has been hooked ever since. Brian hires super nice college age kids, who know the area, the water and how to teach surfing. They're safe, fun, and very interested in success! I often watch the C-Sick... More

My girlfriend and myself took lessons from Brian over the summer. We called and talked with him the day before to make reservations and met at 8 on the beach. He offered the cheapest price on the island and individualized lessons (just him for the two of us). We had no problem finding him and he brought along everything we... More

We took our 3 sons to C-Sick Surfin' (ages 18, 15, and 12). During the first half hour Brian (the owner) gave excellent instructions, including demonstrations about the basics of the board, where to place your body, how to paddle, how to stand up, etc. Within 15-30 minutes of going out into the water, all three boys were up on...

If you've ever wanted to try surfing this is the way to do it. The price is fantastic. It only cost about 5 dollars more then renting a board. He was friendly, patient, and very helpful. I loved it and can't recommend it enough.

My 2 daughters, age 11 and 12 had a fantastic time during their lesson with Brian. This was their first time surfing and he had them up and riding small waves in no time flat. He also taught them about currents, riptides, and general safety, of course. He was very patient and enthusiastic with them, and also had a great... More

By far one of the most memorable visits ever to Galvy and it was because of Brian and his staff at C-Sick Surfin! We had two groups for my daughters 17th Birthday as we were spending the week on the island! Each time both Brian and his staff worked with everyone ranging in age from 13-20 to be sure everyone...
