From the first moment we walked in until the end of the lesson, Brian and Peter were amazing. Brian was the perfect teacher and we were surfing by the end of the session.

Highly recommend Ty Gurney Surf School! went out for an hour on 6 Feb with Nathan. Had an amazing time, learned a lot about the local area and caught some waves! I absolutely recommend this surf school to beginners looking to learn the basics, or experienced surfers new to the island. thanks again for the great time, and I am looking forward to my next lesson! Support your local businesses!!

Perfect swell wrapping around from North Shore, had a lot of fun. Rash guards and sunscreen provided, quick walk to a really nice break. Thanks Nathan, really nice guy who gave helpful advice and helped me get into position, got up within my first couple tries. Great day!

I am not very good at water sports and I am not very good at board sports. For some reasons, I decided to give surfing a try. I cannot recommend TY Gurney Surf School more! They were so patient but also didn't waste time on land - we spent 99% of the time in the water! By the end of the lesson, I had stood up riding multiple waves! It was awesome!!

Nate had me up on my first wave this morning! So much fun and incredible instruction. In two hours he taught me everything from the basics of how to stand up to proper surf etiquette and how to read the ocean. I highly recommend this surf school and the instructor Nate in particular. He was very patient, knowledgeable and super easy going. The two hour surf lesson flew by as I was having such a great time catching wave after wave. After dealing with the stress of moving to the island and settling into a new job, this was just what I needed. Thanks Nate! - Leith
