Ellison was patient and helpful. We spent time on the beach going over technique then went to the water. I was up and holding on quickly. But quickly lost my balance and he spent time going over what happened and correcting me patiently. Great instructor. Fun, Helpful and most importantly, knowledgeable.

It was so refreshing to learn to surf with guys who know exactly how to explain the concepts to a novice and actually get you surfing. I've taken surf lessons before that left me frustrated and in tears. It turns out I've been trying for years putting the wrong foot forward on the board! Ellison is the first person to notice it! Two of my friends took lessons as well and were up and surfing immediately. They loved it! I would recommend Ellison to anyone of any age.

Ellison and Brian are the owners of Folly Beach Surf Lessons. Four of us took lessons last June, 2013. They were very personable and made everyone feel comfortable, especially my 2 teenage girls who have grown up on snow skiis but have never touched a surfboard (the surf was choppy).
They immediately split my girls up from me and a friend and had Brian work with them closer to shore as they were a bit apprehensive. We went over basics on the beach then were in the surf and spent plenty of time learning. Ellision stayed out with us and constantly gave encourgaement and tips. Overall , we had a blast! I highly recommend Folly Beach Surf lessons,
Rick

This was my first time surfing and they got me to stand up in no time. It's a lot more exciting when you are working with professionals who like to have fun and are laid back.

Thanks Bryant & Ellison!

My daughter wanted to learn how to surf and Folly Beach Surf lessons provided the perfect experience for her first time. I would recommend Folly Beach Surf Lessons for a beginner or someone wanting a refresher course. The instructors experience, professionalism, and patience will make anyone feel at ease. A great experience for a great value.
