My daughter wanted a second surfing lesson during our stay in Southern Cal. We ran across CorkyCarroll's literally on the Beach. Todd did his best to find us an extra instructor yet when that was not possible in our needed time frame he simply put on his wetsuit and went in the water himself with my child. He spent an...

We have been going to Corky Carroll Surf School for the last seven years. My daughters are now 9 & 12 years old. We're so fortunate to live so close to a place like this! The kids have so much fun, make new friends, and cheer each other on as they try to catch waves. The kids are matched up... More

Our 14 year old daughter said it was the #BestDayEver. She loved every minute of it. The instructors were awesome. Would recommend these guys to anyone. Lori, Washington (June 17th & 19th, 2015)

Corky Carroll's has been a continued generous supporter of the Bolsa Chica Conservancy, donating surf lessons for our annual fundraising gala! We appreciate small businesses that understand and participate in giving to other local organizations like Corky's!

We had another amazing experience with private surf lessons for our 2 boys (ages 13 and 10) on our recent trip to Huntington! We have had lessons with Corky Carroll's before and have experienced their summer kid's surf camps as well! We had Blake and Josh as instructors on this visit, who were "awesome" according to our boys. Our kids... More

I took a 2hr lesson and learned so much from the instructor. It was very enjoyable and I was able to ride amazing waves. So fun, and definately worth the price! I'll be coming back for more lessons soon.

Our son took at week of surf lessons from this school and loved it! I felt they were very organized and set-up and they had everything for the kids along with a positive attitude. We will return.

My family and I were only in Irvine, CA, for a couple of days and I hadn't pre-planned what to do with our two kids (11 & 10 y.o.). On a whim, I called Corky Carroll's at about 4pm and asked if they had any surf lessons available the next day. They had two time slots so I chose the... More

We live in Orange County, but this is our first time doing a surf camp. My 13 and 11 year old daughters are loving it. Bolsa Chica State Beach is the perfect location for beginning surfers and the instructors are great. An added bonus for parents who stay to watch is that there are bike/walking trails where you can enjoy... More
