John "Quad" Gayle

Junior Surf Instructor & Counselor

John, better known as Quad at Surf Hatteras, is beyond stoked to be a part of the staff this summer. Though he might be new to the staff, he is no Surf Hatteras rookie; he has been coming to camp for the past 5 years acquiring 10 weeks of fun and excitement. Quad lives in Charlottesville (go Hoos) and attends The Covenant School where both of his parents work as teachers. His love for surfing was nurtured by his grandparents who own a house in Virginia Beach, and sent him to his very first week of Surf Hatteras awesomeness when he was 12. He has gotten to surf various surf spots on the coasts of Virginia, North Carolina, and Mexico, and cannot wait to surf some more this summer!
