As we were planning our family trip to Tybee, I wanted to get a few surf lessons for my 14 year old son and used TripAdvisor reviews to select Tybee Surf School. I am so thankful I did. When I first called for information, Chelsea spent 20 minutes on the phone with me going over everything and helping me understand... More

We go to Savannah most every year for spring break. We look for fun outside things to do around while we are there. This year we wanted to go to the beach and try surfing. We found Tybee Surf school and decided to give it a try. It is pretty early in the season, but they were able to accommodate... More

I planned a large family vacation to Tybee Island and one of the activities that some of us wanted to do was surfing. So I called in and spoke to Chelsea to reserve a time for 8 people (she was very kind and helpful). The day of our instructor Leo and his helper Noah made sure that every one of... More

My 13 and 16 year old loved the lesson they took with Leo on our first time visit to Tybee. He took our snowboarder and downhill ski racer and turned them into surfers! It has been the highlight of their summer. Chelsea was great at helping coordinate and schedule their experience.

My great great nephew had a wonderful experience learning to surf. He was on the board in 15 minutes - I couldn't believe it! Leo was so patient and kind and Chelsea was wonderful to keep me informed about times, where they were and what weather conditions were. We had a fantastic experience and I would recommend to everyone who... More

My daughter took a lesson with Leo. He is a great instructor and had her up on the board in no time. Tybee Surf School was very easy to book with - I was fortunate enough to get a same day lesson. The best part for me were the photos that Leo took with the Go Pro. Can't wait until... More

Our whole family took lessons with Leo and had a fabulous time. We all got up (from our 5yr old boy, 8 &9 yr old girls to the 45 yr old parents!). Leo is easy going, makes it fun but also really knows his stuff. (Professional international surfer and certified life guard.) Our children really loved Leo--i would recommend to... More

My two daughters took a surf lesson this past week at Tybee and had an amazing time. Leo was great! He worked with each one and really helped teach them what to do instead of just pushing them off. They are actually learning how to surf and I could not be more proud! I highly recommend Tybee Surf School --... More

My son (8) has talked about taking surfing lessons for quite some time. We live in Ohio so our only beach access is during summer vacations. He saved money for an entire year so he could do week long lessons, but at the last minute our plans changed and we would only be in Tybee for 3 days over the... More
