I had a great surf lesson. My teacher was very kind and honest. Due to the lack of waves in the morning, I was allowed to borrow a surfboard again in the afternoon and practice the learned skill. It wasn't easy, but I had a lot of fun. I will be back, thank you!

I went with my 15-year old daughter for private, 1:1 surfing lessons with Tony's school. We had Jon B. and Calli for our instructors and they were amazing! The on-land instructions were quick (10 minutes or so) and then we were in the water.

For our experience, the instructor was with us the entire time and gave us a push out into the wave, told you when to paddle, and then yelled when to "pop-up" on the board. This was super helpful, and it's clear their goal is to get you up on the wave and enjoying the ride.

My daughter rented a surf board from Tony's shop after the lessons and surfing is definitely much more difficult without an experienced surfer telling you which wave to ride AND giving you that much needed push. We would totally take lessons again from Tony's school.

Sidenote, when we returned our rented board, Tony was there at the front desk and thanked us for our business. Tony is a genuine person who cares about every person who walks through that door. What an awesome experience!

Called @8:45 to rent chairs & an umbrella. Before we could finish getting our beach bags packed they called asking where we wanted them set up. This was first time renting. But definitely not the last. We thoroughly enjoyed not having to lug chairs to the beach. Not to mention trying to dig a hole for the umbrella. Very comfortable too- had my very own sand recliner. Highly recommend!!! I’ll always use these guys from here out! Thanks so much!

If you want to rent bikes or beach umbrella/chair packages, you MUST call Tony Silvagni. My only regret? Not getting bikes for the entire week we were there.

I called to check out the prices and was pleasantly surprised that they were reasonable, AND that baskets, helmets and locks were included. It was a busy day but Tony himself gave me all the information since his employees were all helping others. Then, Tony and an employee delivered the bikes to our beach house! They got us set up, made sure our helmets fit, and even gave us a few free hours. They picked the bikes up the day after our rental was over. This could not have been any easier! I just wish we'd had the bikes all week.

We also got beach chairs and an umbrella for a day. Again, super easy on our end of things--we asked for them to be near a certain entrance point and they were there waiting for us.

You can't go wrong with this outfit. Tony is a young man but has a very mature head for business.

I booked the group surfing lesson for my nephews for their birthday and they had the best experience. Their first time surfing and they had individual instructors to make sure they had the attention they needed to help them get up and ride the waves. They want to do it again next year and I can’t recommend them enough. Special shout out to John B, Nik, and Daniel who made a little boy, who was really nervous about the water, so proud to ride a wave all the way to shore. Beyond happy with the lesson.

Chair/Umbrella rental: At Carolina Beach, we called each night before (we were there less than a week) and ordered the chairs and umbrella. Totally dependable service. Quick to answer the phone, polite, and the chairs were there the next morning as promised.

Tony has a beach chair & umbrella rental service and he does a very good job. We rented two chairs and an umbrella for a week and every morning our chairs were set up in a very good location just behind the high tide line insuring us of a good spot on the beach which was very helpful on a crowded beach. Every evening, they pick them up. My only concern is I don't believe they clean them in anyway, and with this monkey pox coming to NC, that could be a problem.

Tony was exceptional to work with! He was always quick to respond and I truly appreciate him and the team setting up a special on-the-beach meeting setup with his chairs and umbrellas. First time ever for everyone to have a meeting on the beach and now all other meetings will be boring.

Rented an awesome fat tire bike. Great and helpful service. Bike in excellent condition. Good price. Bes part was that they opened at 7am before heat of the day. Thank you! Would totally use them again. (Hopefully for surfing lessons someday!) This is a well run place.
