Testimonials

Ruben Brinsmead

Gary has been my surfing coach for more than a year and a half and throughout this time my surfing has improved a lot. With his experience, Crooky has been able to clearly communicate the proper technique and mentality for good surfing.

Justin Holland
Pro SUP rider & Big wave rider

I started training with Gary last year after my injury... My surfing was struggling a little and Gary really helped identify a few things I needed to work on.

 

And after only a few sessions of video analysis and looking at my boards I could feel the difference...

 

I didn't think I could improve as much as I have after this injury and Gary really gave me the confidence to move forward.

 

Marie-Moana

I grew up in Reunion Island and started surfing when I was 6. Because of the serious shark situation over there, I had to move to Australia when I was 14 to keep surfing. I was really lucky to meet Gary Cruickshank and start training with him every week. I could see important improvements in my surfing either in technique, positioning or waves selection. Gary will correct your bad habits as he likes perfection and you will see the difference straigh away. He will take you as his friend and will want the best for you. I keep training with him to get ready for the 2017 qualification season and he is helping me a lot.
