We offer Surf & Paddleboard Lessons The Carolina Waterman is a local nonprofit organization which organized for the purpose of educating our visitors about our local waters and the variety of ways to enjoy those waters. In order to help fund our mission we self generate funds by charging non-residents for one of a kind waterman experiences around Myrtle Beach. Whether you are looking for a calm and relaxing tour of our Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge or interested in a gnarly day of learning how to surf in Myrtle Beach... The Carolina Waterman is the place for you. By supporting the Carolina Waterman you are supporting the growth of a healthy and responsible "waterman" community along the Grand Strand. We are currently developing the Carolina Waterman "Jr. Waterman Program" which will provide local middle schoolers with a variety of free opportunities to learn about our water. Please follow the Carolina Waterman, share our stoke, and come out for an unforgettable experience!

My husband and I paddle boarded for two hours on the Waccamaw Wildlife Refuge, with instructor and guide, Trent. It was fun and relaxing. We highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn to SUP, or wants to learn more about the surrounding wildlife.

What an amazing way to start our day...my cousin and I spent two hours paddleboarding on the Waccamaw Wildlife Refuge...gorgeous! We were novices, yet Trent was extremely professional, took the time to orient us on land to paddling, positioning, etc. Safety is his first priority!...More

Excellent. Exceeded expectations in every way. If you've ever wanted to try surfing but thought you couldn't do it, try this company. Trent will get you up riding a wave!

That really depends on personal preference! Our favorite time for lessons is usually 2 hours before - 2 hours after the high tide. Mornings usually have calmer winds and nicer weather though! Mornings for sure!
