Wow, I cannot say enough about how fantastic of an experience this was. Spending a week in Myrtle Beach with family, I spent a ton of money on mediocre experiences. This however, is the one thing I would whole-heartedly recommend to anyone who wants to try to surf! I signed up for group lessons for myself (an out of shape old man), my 19 yr old son, and my 9 yr old son who has never stepped on a board of any kind. Brandon and the entire staff were amazing. They took care to ensure that everyone in the group not only got up and were able to surf, but to make sure they had fun doing so.

Everyone there has a perpetual excitement that is contagious with every customer.
If you are looking to experience surfing, this is the place to do it. You will learn a lot, but you will be successful and have fun. I am pretty sure that if they can get me up on a surf board, they can get anyone up!

I highly recommend Kokopelli surf. My daughter took her first surf lesson last summer. It was a private lesson and she stood up on her first wave (she was 7 at the time) and continued to surf many waves. She had a blast and was immediately hooked on surfing.

My son took his first surf lesson this summer. It was also a private lesson and he also stood up on his first wave (he is 11). I knew my daughter would be able to surf because she is very athletic but I had doubts about my son, as he is not athletic and was nervous to try surfing. I was so impressed that the instructor (Graham) had my son surfing right away. I was also unsure if my son would like surfing but I believe that the encouragement that Graham provided him gave him the confidence to believe in himself and enjoy surfing.

Both of my kids also did the three day surf camp. They loved it! My son said it was the best part of his trip. The instructors were kind, patient, and encouraging. All the kids in the camp were catching waves. My daughter got picked at the end of camp to surf with Koko the surf dog which was the highlight of her trip. The Cherry Grove Pier surf spot was perfect for beginners and kids. The water is shallow so I didn’t have to worry about my kids swimming skills. They had a photographer take pictures of the kids so I got some good pictures of both kids surfing. My kids will absolutely attend surf camp again when visiting Myrtle Beach.

If you are looking to try surfing while on vacation or if you live in the area, these are the folks to do it with!

I've taken two private beginner surfing lessons with these guys and plan on doing a couple more while I'm still in town! One of the owners, Wyatt, met me on the beach the first day and introduced me to John, the instructor, who was extremely personable, knowledgeable, and observant throughout our whole time in the water. He gave me a new nugget of info and/or an adjustment to make after pretty much every wave I caught, which really helped me speed up my learning.

A couple minutes after starting my second lesson, as we were seeing that we weren't going to get much in the way of waves, I was offered the chance to postpone to a day with better conditions at no extra cost - luckily that happened to be the very next day!

These guys really went above and beyond and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to start their surfing journey in Myrtle Beach.

We absolutely love Kokopelli surfing! This is our second summer taking lessons with them and I know we'll be back next summer. My daughters were up and surfing on day one, and they continue to have an amazing time, getting better and better on a surfboard. It's amazing to see their progress, and after each lesson, they want to keep surfing and learning more. The instructors are filled with praise and encouragement. We worked with Brandon last year and Chase this year - both were awesome! We highly recommend Kokopelli Surfing as a must-do activity!

I highly recommend anyone and everyone try kokopelli surf camp and tours. The instructors are super friendly, kind and knowledgeable. Our daughter did surf camp with them and fell in love. All the staff we so great we are now doing private lessons she loves them and surfing so much. She has learned a lot in such a short period of time. She is already riding waves. It’s so awesome to watch her. Brandon and his crew will not disappoint. We are going to try kayak tours with them next. I would not go anywhere else we are so happy with every experience we have had with them.

We rented a house on a canal this year and realized only after arriving that the canal would be a great place to paddle around in. On line we ordered a 4 hour kayak and paddle board rental to be delivered to the house.They arrived on time-even early! The driver had enough life jacket sizes with him to accommodate everyone in our family. All the equipment was of good quality and the paddle board was extra stable- good for us beginners. The guy delivering was actually an owner- very laid back, knowledgeable and friendly.
At the end of the 4+ hours he came back and picked up the gear. This rental was a great experience for us and the professionalism and friendliness of the company will have us use them again next year. Highly recommend !!

Took wife who is petrified of water activities out in tandem kayak. Wyatt the lead guide and 2 others kept entire group safe and together. 2 daughters first time on paddle boards the female guide was extremely patient as my daughter was last in tow but got her through it and she wants to do it again. Definitely recommend as a family outing very professional and safe

My 18 year old daughter and I never surfed before and our instructor Jerry had us up and riding waves in no time. Brandon was very accommodating, a true professional. Overall experience was a 10/10 from the initial online booking, to the day of lessons and follow up. Check these guys out, you will not be disappointed.

I signed my son (10 years old) up for a 1 on 1 lesson! He had a blast with his instructor Megan. He was up and surfing quickly. He asked me if he could do it again before we head home from vacation. So, I have signed him up next week for the 3 day camp for him to strengthen his beginner skills before we head back to Philly next Saturday! I highly recommend if you are thinking about this while on vacation or as a local to use Kokopelli, they are the best and are passionate about what they do!

Brandon, Jerry, and Anna were great. They kept our family together and gave us lots of individual attention even though we were in a group lesson. My daughter is a small 11-year old, and they were protective of her, keeping a watchful eye at all times. Everyone was up on their surfboards for a majority of the waves. Everyone said they would definitely do it again.
