We've been taking the whole family to Corky Carroll's for a few years now. I can't even remember how many. Perhaps 4 or 5. We have children from 18 to 5 that participate. The youngest does their Beach Adventure for the week. The instructors are great. They build sand castles or do other things while one or two instructors take... More

Our instructor was fantastic! He was awesome with the kids. Their lessons are structured to train for 1 hour and then leave the kids with the board for an hour to surf on their own. I would have preferred more supervision for my child on that second hour, even paid for it, but that was not an option. I am... More

This was so amazing for our children! The instructor, Alex, was great and the boys can't stop talking about him. One got up on first try, other one took a while and started getting frustrated but the instructor new just how to work with him. We will be back for sure, may even do a group/party!

My husband has lived in the middle of cornfields his whole live, the Midwest. When we moved out here, he wanted to learn to surf. So, he went here! Couldn't believe how quickly they had him up on a Longboard and he has been doing it ever since!

I highly recommend this surf camp - my son and daughter attended a few years ago, and my daughter is finishing up a week of camp as I type. Very organized, and a great way to spend a week in the Summer. The first time we did the half day camp - and this year we signed up for the... More

This is the 2nd summer I have brought my son to this beach camp. He went last year and definitely wanted to return. He just turned 15 years old. The instructions on how to get there (with a very helpful photo online of the signal where you turn left), where to park, are clear. There is a large pop-up with... More

I think I'm on cloud 9 after today! This was probably one of the coolest things I have ever done! The staff was outstanding and my instructor was so helpful and very knowledgable... He taught me how to navigate the ocean, which made me feel way more comfortable. He was so patient with me and gave me some awesome pointers!... More

We would like to thank Corky Carroll's surf school for an excellent experience! Keith and the entire staff were exceptionally friendly. Our instructer Kallan (sp?) was fantastic. The 3 of us had never been surfing and he was very thorough and patient throughout the lesson. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun and relaxed way to learn... More

I just took a lesson with my 12 year old daughter and had such a great time. I would definitely recommend these guys to anyone. The staff was very friendly and had us comfortable in the water in no time. Our instructor was very patient and helpful. The best part is they use real surfboards and got us away from... More
