Just stay away from McEvlins. I believe that is who runs this page on trip advisor. Oceans Surf Shop has better boards, better instructors and kinder employees. The bald guy at McEvlin's has anger issues and yells at customers. He does not wear his mask yet walks around the room yelling at people like me whose mask fell below my nose. I literally got kicked out for my mask falling down by a man who does not even have a mask on. I did not even tell him that he was being unfair for not having a mask on. I said, may we come back later as we are buying boards. He said NO! That is when I said, ok you are not getting away with this. I have given them multiple chances to make up for this but he is too much of a jerk. Poser probably doesn't even surf.

This was the first time we have ever rented a house on Folly Beach. We did this with my niece and nephew sisiter inlaw and my nephews mother. Me and my husband have been to Charleston many times and have always stayed in our camper or a motel over on Mt. Pleasant . ( which we love by the way) But after my niece had mentioned this we were game to go and glad we did. We just spent a week at Folly beach and stayed in a rental house right on the beach and they called it the washout area. We went sightseeing a lot into Charleston and about . but was so fabulous to get up every morning and catch the sunrise and watch surfers and just the ocean itself. very relaxing when we stayed still. great weather in the 80s and I was kind of shocked to get such great weather in the end of march. I would recommend this rental house to anyone.

We were so exited to take out first surfing lesson and so glad we picked the right group to work with. We stayed at Folly Beach and met Ellison and his brother Brian for a morning lesson and the conditions couldn't be more perfect. I was concerned if waves would be strong for my daughter but it was mild but good enough for us to get up and catch our first waves. We got down to business and hit the waters in maybe 10 minutes and took us 3 adults a few tries but my daughter got up right away! She loved it and we loved how easy going and down to earth the brothers were. Thanks for such a great first experience!

In one hour we went from no experience at all to riding waves.. All of us! Even the "bigger" guys in the group were able to get up and ride with excellent and sound advice from our awesome leaders! The Ellison brothers are the best... We will do surf lessons with them every time we come to Folly Beach from now on!

We were having trouble deciding what our favorite thing about our trip was, but after our surfing lesson we all agreed that it topped the list. Ellison was so friendly and made us all feel super comfortable as we got our surf legs. Will recommend them to family and friends who come to Folly Beach.
