    What to Expect
    This stand-up paddleboard lesson begins at Folly Beach, located on historic Folly Island in Charleston, South Carolina. Whether a beginner or advanced boarder, the professionally trained guides conduct proper ground school instruction and in-water paddle training, guaranteeing a safe, fun and exciting experience for everyone.

    Not quite ready for the waves? Flat water river lessons are great for any skill level. The lesson includes proper ground school instruction and in-water paddle training without all the moving water. For beginners, learn how to get it right the first time and then continue to build the skills and confidence necessary to hit the waves. For the more advanced boarder, focus on the specific skills and techniques necessary to move to the next level.

    With six miles of beach to choose from, there are plenty of suitable conditions for the wind and tide. Folly Beach is a great to place to get the hang of stand-up paddleboard surfing on the beachfront. Experienced guides have spent most of their lives surfing and are ready to share their knowledge. Lessons include: safety, surf etiquette, carving and surfing down the line.
