My 15 year-old wanted surf lessons from a true local surfer and guru and that's what he got. Gerry taught my son not only how to surf, but how and why to love surfing. Thank Gerry for the best possible surfing experience!

Had a great morning on the water with Gerry and Leucadia Surf School. Gerry did a great job of explaining the basics and getting us into the water. Got up right away and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thanks Gerry!

Excellent instructor for our daughter. It was a slow day with some rain, so she got one on one instruction. She was up immediately once they went into the ocean.
