We had a lot of fun doing stand-up paddle-boarding. We had a one hour lesson with Noah. He did a great job teaching us the little tricks to learn quickly.

My two children took surf lessons and had a great time and learned a lot. Both were surfing really well by the end of the 4 days. The instructors were really great, fun, and very professional. We will definitely do this again next year.

Carolina School of Surf was a highlight of our beach week. The instructor was very patient and very good. For a first time surfer, this was a great experience and we would definitely use them again and highly recommend them.
