Fantastic! Eight from our family, ages 12 to 50+, took a group lesson and Nick and his team were friendly, patient, and effective teachers. We all got up on the boards and learned things to take with us for next time we try. This may become part of our yearly beach trip traditions!

We had a private surf lesson for a large group (9 total), ages ranging from 6 years old up to 40. Nick and his crew were AMAZING from start to finish. Everyone had a blast and learned so much! We will be back again next summer for sure!

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.

Jason was a fantastic instructor for my sons. They learned so much & loved the time with him. They left super excited to do more surfing during our week @ OBX (Jason had great recommendations for board rentals & where ti get gear). I would recommend for anyone of any level!

Our 12 year old son had a private lesson with Jason who was absolutely wonderful! His experience at teaching surfing was evident as he patiently but swiftly had our son riding the waves in no time! a highlight of our OBX trip! Highly recommend this experience!
