Captain Tarzan founded Wakesurf Orlando in 2015 as the first premier wakesurfing school in the Central Florida area. His goal has always been to improve the riding abilities of all calibre of wakesurfers from first time learners to top level riders on the competitive circuits. He focuses on teaching fundamentals based learning allowing wakesurfers to continue their progress long after classes have ended. He has worked with kids as young as five years old to adults in their seventies. He teaches passion for water sports, a safety-minded approach to boating, and an appreciation and respect for the natural environment we utilize every day on the lakes. He has been involved in towed water sports since first learning to waterski at the age of nine and continues to share the joy of wakesurfing with everyone willing to jump in the water.
Tarzan is by far, head and shoulders, above any instructor I’ve ever had. In fact, I feel like he’s the only instructor I’ve ever had...everybody else was just driving the boat. AND he’s even better at that!!!
Premium experience: Great boat, Great Boards (Skim and Surf), Great Captain. Tarzan is super laid back and passionate about wakesurfing. Always willing to provide tips. Generous with his time. The lake is plenty long. Really good price. Was great to get a break from our vicious Canadian winter! You want to wakesurf in the Orlando area: don't hesitate, jusk book with Tarzan!
Tarzan makes learning fun for everyone, even my 9 year old got up on her first day! Thanks again Tarzan!!
Tarzan, his instruction, and equipment are the best I have tried. No boat throws a wake like that Malibu.
Captain Tarzan is one of the most excellent instructors in the business. He is very informative and guides you through the process. His tips and suggestions as you ride make all the difference in your ride. His boat and boards are top notch. We will definitely go back and continue to ride the waves. Give him a try and I know you won't be disappointed. Have fun!
Went wakesurfing with my husband for the first time Christmas morning. Bradley aka Tarzan was a patient, helpful instructor and an overall cool, laid-back guy. He made it very easy for us to learn. We had a blast and will definitely be doing it again!
Hands down the most influential surfing coach out there. From little to big tweaks in your surf style, I can almost guarantee you will come out of a session surfing better.
