“Best Surf School EVER ;)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

I was in Cancun for my Birthday vacation and came across the Surfin Burrito where Gnarly has his surf school. I had always wanted to learn how to surf and Gnarly made it happen! I got up my first try thanks to him! It was awesome having met him- He definitely has some priceless stories to share!

“Surfs up @ Gnarly,s”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

My daughter & I were in Cancun in December 2011 for Christmas vacation. On her list of must does in Cancun, was to take a surfing lesson. We met Gnarly & Mike at The Surfin Burrito for her lesson. Very professional service, they took great care to make sure she felt comfortable, which made all the difference. If you what a great first lesson, that makes you want to keep on Surfing. Look up the Surf Masters at the Surfin Burrito. So for the restaurant, the food was good, beer was cold as ice and the place is open 24 hrs, need I say more. A must stop for great food & great people.

“Gnarley Changed my LIFE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Surf lessons with Gnarley were no doubt life changing. The minute we hit the sand he said take your shoes off be one with the ground. He is so unique and has seen and done it all. When we ere surfing he screamed for the board after i wiped out i didnt understand so he grabbed the board paddled and ended up saving four peoples lives that where drowning. if it wasnt for him those people would be dead. He is an amazinf person, surf instructor, and now a great friend of mine!!! If there is one thing that completed my trip it was this lesson that i will never forget. U MUST GO!! Thanks Gnarley See you soon man!
