I had an awesome time surfing with Leah, my instructor. I was super nervous having never surfed before, but after a few minutes of land instruction, she had me in the water catching waves. Got my feet underneath me almost immediately and rode my last wave of the day all the way to the beach! Safe to say I’m hooked!

If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. I did the 5 lesson deal (which saves you 20%) and I had a great time at each lesson. The first day they had me catching waves almost immediately, so you don't have to do 5 lessons to have a good time. They were really easy to communicate with and flexible if surf conditions/weather wasn't ideal. As someone who has never surfed before I was really intimidated but Walt, Will and Chris were all super awesome and made me feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend them whether you're a local who wants to learn to surf or just visiting and want to have some fun!

My kids and I took 2 days of lessons with Sean’s PSI. We had a blast! The instructors on both days were great with my kids, making it incredibly fun for them while putting me at ease about their safety.
All 3 of us were able to surf by the 2nd day, even my 6 year old!
Our instructors were Fisher & Aiden on day 1 and Chris & Jacob on day 2.
I highly recommend Sean’s Private Surf Instruction for any new/beginner surfer of any age!

I believe this company to be a scam. I made a reservation online for a 1.5 hour surf lesson as a birthday gift to my nephew. He was visiting NC from CO and was so excited to have the chance to surf! The day before the lesson, the company emailed us to cancel the lesson saying that the 'waves were too big.' But there was no weather in the area. The email stated that they would reschedule or refund the initial payment; but I have since called them twice and emailed them three times requesting the refund. They have never once answered the phone or replied to my inquiries. I finally filed a dispute with my credit card in hopes of getting my money back. Both my nephew and I are very disppoinetd with Sean's Surf! I would stay FAR FAR AWAY!

Worth every cent! 9:45 session with Noah today. I have been trying to surf on and off for several years. Today, I finally got up and stayed up better than I ever have before. Noah's calm, constructive, supportive, and fun attitude really gave me the knowledge and confidence I've always needed to finally get up and surf. I also learned a lot of good etiquette to help me deal with the paranoia I've always had of hurting someone, disrespecting someone, or getting myself hurt. Noah answered ALOT of questions in our time together and really helped me solve alot of the problems I've had trying to learn on my own. Definitely recommend!!

We showed up for my son’s surf lesson but the instructor did not. There were instructors for others in the class so we told them we would reschedule. We are local enough so we did not want the kids on vacation to miss out. We were ok with this part. But after trying to get up for a reschedule, we cannot get anyone to answer a phone, email, Facebook message. It has been over a month with many attempts to contact them. $85 down the drain so far. So disappointed.

For 15 yrs I have been telling myself to try surfing. At 55 I finally got up the courage to try. My daughter and I did a 9:45 am lesson with Luke and Ben. Best experience. Thorough instruction. Will be back for a refresher. Brandon was encouraging on the phone setting the appointment and knowledgeable of the best time to get in the water for the best results. Most of all it got me back in the ocean a place I had forgotten how much I loved!! Definitely worth it. Life is short. Do it 😎

The instructors made it so much fun and relaxing, it really helped us have more fun and not over think it. We were able to stand up on our first try and had an absolute blast. I liked the more one-on-one instruction as that helped a lot and we got to ride a lot of waves. Can't wait to come back again!

Evan and JC gave lessons to my 8 and 10 year old boys. My kids loved the instructors and loved the experience. They begged me to go back and get lessons the next day. We'll definitely be back soon.

My kids did the Yewwth surf camp and I love that it's 1 surf camper: 1 instructor- very needed in this young age group. To my knowledge it's the only surf camp in the Wrightsville area that offers that 1:1 instruction. The kids had a great time and can't wait to continue to surf!
