Tybee Surf Lessons lived up to the hype! Overall it was a good experience, Unkle was a great teacher, and stuck with us despite the rough waves. It was definitely not ideal conditions due to some wind that popped up, but Unkle did the best he could given the conditions. We got a few good waves in! :) Prices

We loved having a private surf lesson with Turner. My kids are 10 and 7, and he held their attention the whole time. Neither had surfed before, but they were both proud of being able to get up quickly and actually ride the waves. We live in Savannah so they’ve been begging to sign up for more classes and get their own boards ever since. We went on a hot day and at a hot time (2 - 4 pm), so the boys were pretty wiped out afterward, yet exhilarated. I highly recommend this activity!

We (1 adult, 1 child) had an amazing experience surfing on Tybee. We emailed about last minute availability and both got into small group sessions that weekend. My son loved surfing with Turner and Uncle and hearing about their Hawaii stories before going in. Turner is super knowledgeable and really takes time understand where each individual is in his/her surfing journey. We will definitely be back for more sessions and maybe add some Ukulele lessons everyone talks about!!!

Booked super early and when the time came I received a message that the waves were to small for lessons.. which was fine but on the website it states they would utilize time by learning to play the ukulele or play beach games. No refund was offered at the time of cancellation. He did ask if we were available the next week though which we were not. Maybe update the site because this felt like a scam! 🙃

Our family group of 12, ranging in age from 10 to 52, completely enjoyed our time with Turner and his two lovely assistants as they taught us how to surf. None of us had ever surfed before and we walked away in love with the sport! Turner is super patient and his team has a great way of making you feel comfortable and confident.
We highly recommend Tybee Surf Lessons!

My Girl Scout troop came this week for a lesson and the girls LOVED it! It was one of their favorite times from our week in Savannah/Tybee. They had 30 minutes of excellent beach instruction and then an hour and a half of pure surfing. Instructors stayed in the water coaching and encouraging them the entire time and all of them had success to some degree at getting up on the boards! I wholeheartedly recommend this to any family or group.

My 2 boys, ages 11 and 15, loved the lessons! 30 min instruction on beach 1.5 in the water. Frank and Addie helped in the water the entire time. They were up and surfing within 20 min in the water! They each gave the experience 10/10 stars. The price is much less expensive than lessons we called about on 30A that were only 1.5 hours. Great experience!

Turner and Unkle were so patient and very outgoing cheering on the kids & dads! They provided the surf boards which were all great quality. Our families are from Savannah so anytime we have a beautiful day on Tybee we book a surf lesson. This is definitely a must for visitors or locals.

While my kids were down here visiting, I googled surfing lessons. Tybee Surf Lessons had the highest rating out of the two outfits. It was the best decision I made!! This organization is top notch and filled with great and personable instructors. I easily booked surf lessons for my 11 & 13 year olds and myself. Frank was our instructor! A very easy to relate with instructor who started us out with surfing etiquette and nomenclature for the boards and surf. After a few pop ups, we were out in the water. And before we knew it, catching waves!! We had such a great time during our two hour lesson (even my reluctant 13 year old), I was asked by my children behind huge smiles; when can we do this again?!!! So I booked more lessons for the week! Frank took care of us again!! Righteous!!!

Wonderful instruction with fun as the goal! I’m in my 50’s and traveling solo. This was a bucket list item for me. Turner provided on beach instruction and in water guidance, lining up each wave. I absolutely would do this again.
