By far the best day yet of our 5 weeks in Central America. Learning to surf with Gnarly was unbelievable. Such a great bloke, superb way of teaching and incredibly supportive. Helped us with every single wave until we were ready to start catching them on our own, even then he kept his eyes fixed on us, signalling when to go, giving us tips to improve on all the time and keeping us safe. The surfing was so addictive. Gnarly was amazing, even gave us a ride home and got us lunch. Brilliant surf school and a seriously good bloke! Gnarly, thanks mate - you're an absolute legend.

Uncle Gnarly picked us up at our hotel and brought us to his place for surf lessons. He was a very fun guy and worked diligently to get each person in our group up and we did! The surf was tricky for first timers compared to other places I have seen surf lessons given. He gave us some good advice for the rest of our trip in Cancun that was very helpful. Price was very good!

You have to learn to surf from Uncle Gnarly! What a blast. I personally recruited 3 other families at my resort to give it a try. He was patient, funny and super attentive. You couldn't ask for more in an instructor. We had a ball! Great for all ages and so so much fun! :)
