Gavin Dgav's-mugunlop

Gavin is our head instructor for Surfing and S.U.P. Gavin also coaches intermediate windsurfing. He leads all sea based aspects of the centre so expect to see his face at the many beaches Tiree has to offer. He is a qualified ASI surf instructor, RYA intermediate planing windsurfing instructor and BSUPA level 2 Stand Up Paddleboarding instructor. From a very young age Gavin has spent much of his life growing up (and surfing) in Tiree, and with over 5 years working with us pretty much full time, he knows every hot spot around the islands coastline.

His experience for top end windsurf and sup coaching grows daily. He is also a good guy to speak to for technical information on windsurfing equipment.
