This place is great! My son had a private surf lesson near Nags Head a week ago and won't stop talking about it. He was thrilled, Seth was the instructor and my son is 14. We really enjoyed our time on the beach watching him catch wave after wave. Would very much recommend this company - professional, friendly, on time and responsive to calls/texts. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

Truly, so much to say/praise about this business! We booked (last minute) a private group lesson for six kids ranging in ages from 10 to 16 years old and the owner worked us into their already packed schedule! The kids had so much fun that we rented boards as soon as the lesson was over and they all surfed the rest of the entire day! The instructors, Molly and Nate, were AMAZING and made all of the kids feel confident, capable and safe. The kids had so much fun. We will be back to the OBX in August and promised the kids we would sign them up for one of the summer camps. Such a fantastic experience for them!

Chris and his team did an amazing job with our group of 7, which had the children of four families, ages 8 to 29 and were from beginner to moderate skill level. The youngest, who is just becoming a swimmer, basically had her own coach. They were very encouraging and great teachers. As the waves got stronger, they were extra vigilant and worked as a team to made sure everyone stayed safe and got help paddling back out whenever needed. The kids loved it so much that we added a second day and then a third day of classes. I highly recommend Outer Banks Surf School.

I booked a private lesson for my 13-year-old. It turned out to be a rainy, windy and cold day for it, but (red-haired) James did a great job showing my daughter the ropes, despite the conditions, she got lots of practice in the water and was able to pop up several times. She had a great time!!

I had a great experience with the surf school. My instructor was Ted and he was extremely knowledgeable and was very patient when we were in the water. I told him what I thought we should focus on to make me a better surfer and he tailored the lesson to what I pointed out as my weaknesses. The lesson lasted way longer than what it was supposed to and he even helped me secure my surf board to the top of my car because I was not doing it the correct way. I would recommend Outer Banks Surf School to any beginner who wants to surf for the first time or wants to improve their surfing.

Signed my daughter and her cousin up for private lessons in Nags Head. Great location. Taylor was right on time and he was EXCELLENT with a 7 and 10 year old novice surfers. Our hopes were for them to catch a wave maybe on their stomachs. He had them STANDING UP on their first waves! They had so much fun. Even let them borrow wet suits when they were getting chilly. He was SO patient and fun and the girls really loved him! Thank you!!! We’ll be back!

July 2022: our first trip to Nags Head was a huge success. Our son surfs-and our daughter watched the instructors giving lessons, and that was it. She was up with James’ coaching, and when a friend from work visited the next day, another coach James and Sarah had them both up and surfing. Highly recommend-professional and friendly with many lesson times, so was able to be flexible. Was a high point for our trip.

Just got back from OBX, and the highlight of my week long trip was the OBX surf school. Our instructor James taught our group the basics extremely well, and even taught our groups only previous surfer individual, catered tips! Not to mention that the owner Chris made splitting payment between our four group of friends really easy. If you want high energy instruction, the best rates in OBX, and tailored instruction, look no further! -Cam

There was a group of four of us and we got two instructors. They couldn't have been nicer and it was impressive how much time we spent in the water and how little time on the sand. All four of us had not surfed before but with their instruction, were able to ride waves standing multiple times. Will definitely book another lesson the next time we visit!

Great experience for three teenagers. None had any prior experience surfing. We had two great days. By the first day all were standing up and by day 2 had mastered a bit more control. Our instructors James and Marcus showed patience and created a wonderful experience for all three.
