Ty Gurney Surf School is one of the only surf schools that offers video and photo services with our lessons and surf tours. We work exclusively with 83 East, a full-service video production company specializing in shooting from the water and delivering top quality, professionally edited footage. 83 East offers a number of video and photo options to complement your surf lesson.
The most popular option and the one we recommend to everyone looking for the complete surf lesson experience. This all-inclusive package combines video and photos so that you take home maximum proof of your surfing skills! It’s a personalized, one-of-a-kind way to remember and re-live the fun of surfing in Hawaii, and a great way to help your progression and development by watching yourself surf.
Our 83 East videographer paddles out with you to the lineup, films your surf session, and edits your footage into a personalized video, complete with bonus footage and a custom soundtrack.
Photos are still frames taken directly from your video footage. The number of photos will depend on the length and number of your surf lessons. In general, a 1-hour surf lesson will generate at least 40 photos. When purchasing photos only, 83 East will email you a private link to easily and securely download your photos.
HOW IT WORKS
Are video and/or photos included with my lesson?
Video and/or photos are 100% optional and are not included with the price of lessons. The 83 East videographers paddle out to shoot every surf lesson, and there is absolutely no obligation to make a video or photo purchase. Video and photos are only included with the Romantic Sunset Surf Package.
What do video and/or photos cost? How do I pay?
Video and photo rates vary; please contact 83 East to receive your quote. You will be quoted for video/photos based on the number of persons surfing, the number of lessons/sessions filmed, and any other factors. (As an example, a Full Package Video & Photos begins at $150 for a 1-hour, 1-person, 1-time surf lesson.
Once you receive your quote and confirm your order, 83 East will send you a PayPal invoice and instructions to pay quickly and securely online.
How do I sign up for video and/or photos?
If you know you definitely would like video or photos, you will be able to indicate your preference when booking a lesson online. (Please also mention any interest in video/photos if booking over the phone.)
Didn’t sign up in advance? No problem. You may also order video/photos after your lesson by contacting 83 East. We’ll take down your information, confirm your order and arrange for payment, and get to work editing!
Can you shoot surf safari island tours too?
Yes! 83 East can shoot half and full day surf tours. Please note that video/photos for surf tours MUST be ordered at the time of booking. An 83 East videographer will only accompany your surf tour if you have confirmed and purchased video/photos in advance.
I didn't sign up after my lesson. Can I still get video/photos?
Yes! 83 East saves footage for up to 4 months, so if you surfed within this time frame, you can still order video and/or photos. To do so, please use the Video & Photos Contact Form below.
Finished video/photos may be picked up at the shop; or, if you are no longer on Oahu, we can easily mail your video/photos to you for a nominal shipping fee.
How long does it take to get my video and/or photos?
Editing normally takes 1 to 3 weeks from the date your video/photo order is confirmed and paid to the date your video/photos are ready to be picked up or mailed out. Kindly allow for extra editing time during peak seasons (summer and holidays).
How long will it take for mailed video/photos to be delivered?
83 East ships mailed video/photos via United States Priority Mail. We may arrange first-class or other shipping methods at your request.
Priority Mail service transit times vary. Within the United States, Priority Mail is estimated at 3 to 5 business days. International Priority Mail is approximately 7 to 10 business days.
