We specialize in standup paddle board lessons SUP in Ocean Isle Beach, surf camps OIB, and surf lessons in ocean isle. Our staff is trained professionally and all adhere to a standard set of rules, morals and guidelines. We are practitioners of clean beaches to keep our main attraction looking as it did before we got here. The experience of surfing goes far beyond the act of surfing itself. We know the link between the surfer and instructor is very important. With this being said, each employee is maintained through our elite curation process. They have been hand-picked by the founders of Carolina School of Surf to represent the brand.

My mom (62), my stepdaughter (13), and I (34) went stand up paddleboarding together, and all of us had a great time! Employees were very helpful/polite over the phone when we had to make changes to our booking, and our instructor was great!
