About
Corky Carroll's Surf School is the original surf school of Huntington Beach. For over 25 years, we've provided surf lessons, surf camps and surfboard rentals. Our surf lessons are for all levels and ages, held year-round and include board and wetsuit. Our surf camps are for kids ages 4-13 during the Summer. Our surfboard rentals are available year round, and we're the only rental you can reserve ahead online. Our surf school is family owned and operated. We were started in 1996 by local Huntington Beach surfer Rick Walker with the help of surf legend Corky Carroll -- the first ever professional surfer.

Today we had a family surf lesson with Corky Carroll’s Surf School. Our ages ranged from 49 - 6yrs old. The instructors were kind, fun and very supportive. Would highly recommend Corky’s. We will be back. Thank you!

We have been coming to this surf school for 3 years now since coming to LA for vacation. My daughter loves it!! The instructors are all excellent and look after you incredibly well, we wouldnt go anywhere else!!! A special mention to Canning as he is Hollys favorite and always takes very good care of her every time we are there.

My 3 kids (14, 12, 9) came for the first time last year and couldn't wait to come again this year. Weather and water was colder this year and I was worried on the first day but they had so much fun it didn't matter.

The staff are great and very accommodating.

FYI, my kids are decent swimmers (YMCA lessons since young) but very little exposure to ocean waters and waves. There were no issues

Can't wait to get back in the water and on a board! Cannon Carroll (Chuck's grandson) helped me crank out two 90 minute surf sessions! It'd been 50 years since I'd ridden other than tending my own children's boards and WOW!! he made it awesome. I'm stricken by Cannon's ability to read the waves to make the most of my sessions. He is extremely detail and safety conscious. He provided in water support, tips, encouragement along with instruction to take it from here.This surfer "girl" is stoked up to get right back into surfing regularly!!

Though it was cold, the swells were right, in the morning, and the waves were plenty.

T-Roy stayed in the cold water to get my kids up on the long board, while in their wetsuits.

Thanks Corky for getting us started and up on boards and into the water!

We just need a lot more practice.

I highly recommend Corky Carroll's Surf School to anyone wanting to learn how to surf. The surf school is really well run, and the people could not be nicer. Keith and Hunter went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied. Ben was an excellent instructor, making me feel safe and going at my pace. Unlike other schools, Corky Carroll's only charges for an hour and then if you want another hour of instruction, you just pay an additional $40. That way you don't feel like you have to stay out when you're exhausted. Also, they let you use the board to practice for an hour after your lesson. Many surf schools do not hold the necessary legal licenses to run their school on the beach. Corky Carroll's has the necessary legal licensing. They do things the right way. Corky Carroll's Surf School cares about its students and makes sure you are safe and enjoy your experience. Thank you for the amazing experience!
