Absolutely Amazing Lesson. The guys were great with our kids ages 6-12 and they all loved it! In just a few minutes they had our six year old catching waves! Amazing staff all around a wonderful experience.

We were staying at Holden this week, but my 14 year old wanted a surfing lesson. It was a quick drive to Ocean Isle for a private lesson with Emma. My son had a great time, and was able to get up on the board and catch quite a few waves. He had a great time...really fun option for older kids and teens! They also have surf camp 4 days a week👍

We did two days of lessons with Carolina School of Surf at Ocean Isle Beach, NC. I was looking for Stand Up Paddleboard lessons and found that this company also offered surf camp and surf lessons. We decided on a Paddleboard lesson for two adults and a child one day and surf lessons for a child another day. The Paddleboard lesson was great, we spent an hour exploring the cause wayside of the island and all three of us were competently paddling on our boards by the end of the hour. Kyle, our instructor, was soft spoken, patient and knowledgeable, and he kept all of us moving in the right direction. The surf lesson was even better. Our 9yo had individual time with Seth, who was also very patient and well versed in getting kids up on their surfboards. He gave her a few minutes of safety instruction, taught her how to "pop up" to a standing position on the board and headed out to the waves. On her very first wave, she stood right up on the board and rode the wave into the beach!! I was shocked at how quickly she picked it up. She had a full hour of instruction in the water and rode in many more waves, and she finished the lesson tired but still very enthusiastic about surfing, and she now wants her own board. I think the boards they used at Carolina School of Surf were a huge factor in the ease of instruction, and the kids in camp looked to be catching lots of waves and having a great time, too!

Our family along with another family signed our 5 kids up for private lessons and they had an absolute blast. Two of the children had taken a lesson a year prior in the Outer Banks and although they said they enjoyed the experience, the lesson they had here in OIB was far and away better. What they liked most was that it was a perfect balance between safety/instruction and actually "surf time". After a short review on the beach about safety, etc., kids were in the water and actually surfing most of the time. We got our money's worth that's for sure. We will do it again at our next next OIB trip for sure. I recommend it. Our kids ranged from 9 to 13 and they all got so much out of it.

I was on vacation with my family for the week, and decided I wanted to try my hand at surfing. I had never done it before, and I had no idea what I was doing. Carolina School of Surf was very proactive with their service. I was able to show up and meet my instructor right on the beach, and we got started right away. The instructor was very experienced and knew how to explain everything in an understandable way. It was so much fun!! I was up on the first wave and had a blast. I would definitely do it again. Surfing was on my bucket-list and these guys helped make it happen.
