Amazing morning surf lesson with Chris. He was knowledgeable and made the day super fun while also making everyone feel confident and safe. Can’t wait to do a week of lessons next time we visit Folly.

There are much better surf schools on folly and In Charleston. Recommended to look else where such as parrot surf shop or Mckevlins. Had a much better experience through Sol Surfers Surf Camp

I took a Saturday WeMoons with Jenny Brown and fell in love with Surfing. I then set up lessons for my 6 and 8 year olds. They loved it too. Jenny’s passion, experience and knowledge make Shaka Surf School a must on Folly Beach!
