Tybee Island Ocean Skills Week playing in the Triangle

Tybee Island Ocean Skills Week

Join us for 6 amazing days on one of the most unique islands on the east coast.  Tybee Island Ocean Skills Week takes full advantage of all Tybee has to offer paddlers.  We will play and learn on her great surf beaches, back bays full of wildlife, and the world famous “Triangle” tidal race.


When winter is licking at the midwest’s doorstep, Georgia is still boasting warm water,  fair weather and no crowds.  Coaching sessions will take best advantage of whatever conditions the Atlantic throws at us.  With access to protected water as well as waves and the tide races around the island, we’ll always have something to meet the challenge you are looking for.
