If you’ve ever tried to surf, you know how frustrating it can be. Where does one begin? The wipe outs, the nose-dives, the endless paddling, and that nervous feeling that won’t go away. What appears to be a simple process is actually full of disheartening challenges. Without the proper instruction, learning on your own can seam to be an impossible endeavor. Learning from friends or family can create bad habits, and eventually might cause you to hang up your board forever.
The best way to get introduced to the world of surfing is through personalized private surf instruction from Carolina Surf School . In our private surfing lessons you will receive one-on-one instruction on the beach and in the water, ensuring your safety and optimal learning curve. Our private lessons are scheduled according to your desire and our availability. First time lessons consist of 15 minutes of our “ Ground School,” and 1.15 hours of personalized water time. Our proven and progressional instructional methodology offers a step-by-step approach to your skill development. Second and consecutive lessons consist of all water time!
Come let our certified instructor teach you the fundamentals of surfing so you’ll be enjoying the thrill, instead of experiencing the frustration! Get the high quality attention that you deserve and the professional instruction that you expect. All lessons emphasize safety and fun, but we also take the next step in teaching our students to read the ocean and judge waves so they can start build their own confidence.
