Charleston Surf Lessons is World Class!!! My 4 sons have each done numerous one on one lessons. My wife and I have done couples lessons and individual lessons. We have done birthday parties for our boys. We have participated in numerous weeks of summer camp sessions. We have purchased lessons for various friends and family members as gifts. Each and every single time we participate we are amazed at how truly awesome each experience is. Every instructor is consistent in knowledge of water safety and the actual lessons on surfing. Everyone we know who has tried Charleston Surf Lessons is left wanting more and more. The service is perfect! EVERY TIME! Josh the owner, professional surfer and brilliant instructor is easily accessible and always willing to help. Tommy, Savannah, Andy, Dawson and all other instructors are just as amazing. If you want a safe, fun, active and energetic experience for all ages and skill levels THIS is the place. Camps, private lessons, group lessons....you name it! They even have transportation to and from the summer camps!! I just cant say enough. Try it for yourself...you will not be sorry!! more »

Awesome classes! I took 2 lessons with Josh while visiting Charleston and it was a great experience! Josh competed professionally with the US team, and has been coaching and teaching for years, so he is an experienced and talented teacher. He starts you off with 30 minutes on the beach reviewing safety tips and practicing standing up on the board, and then you spend an hour in the water. In just two lessons I noticed real improvement. Board and wetsuit/rash guard are included. Highly recommended! more »

I was visiting a friend in Charleston and took two classes with Josh while I was there. Josh has several years experience coaching and teaching, nationally and on a professional level, and he is an excellent instructor. For your first lesson he starts you off with a 30 minute land lesson where you get oriented to the beach, learn crucial safety information, and practice your pop-up (standing up on the board). Then you're in the water for an hour catching waves! I've taken a few surfing classes before, so during my second lesson we just went straight to the water and practiced turns. In just two lessons I noticed real improvement. Josh includes the board rental in his lesson, as well as a wetsuit or rash guard if you need it. I highly recommend classes with Josh; they were the best surf classes I've taken, and he's a lot of fun to work with too! more »

Best learn to surf experience by far! Our son has been taking lessons with Charleston Surf Lessons for several years and loves the experience as well as the instructors. The instructors had him up and riding from day one! Not only do the instructors exude professionalism, they are super motivating and promote a safe, positive environment for their students - of all ages.
After having him enrolled in another surf camp, I was thrilled to learn that Charleston Surf Lessons offered a summer camp not only for a better price, but they had a better camper to instructor ratio. Needless to say, from that point on that's the surf camp he attends annually in addition to taking private lessons throughout the year.
After comparing rates for both camps and private lessons, Charleston Surf Lessons is the best!
While watching our son learn to surf and seeing how much he enjoys the experience, surfing with Charleston Surf Lessons became a family affair!

Booked a one-on-one lesson with instructor Mark in Folly Beach in November. Mark told me the water was brisk, but I'm used to water skiing in CO lakes, so it felt about right to me. We had a beautiful day and full wet suits (plus I was working hard as a beginner), so the temperature suited me fine. The weather was almost too nice and we had to wait between good waves, but Mark was very knowledgeable and patient.
I'd taken surfing lessons once before in Mexico, and CSL taught a different technique than I'd learned previously. What Mark taught seemed much more natural to me and I felt like I made some good progress in a short amount of time. Good grub at Chico Feo (Mark's recommendation) afterward as well.
The owner (Josh) was great to work with on the set-up and instructor (Mark) was great to surf with. All said and done, it was a much appreciated experience that I'll remember for a long time. Good for the soul. Only problem is now I'm jonesing to go again. Might have to sign up for a surf camp and try out some bigger waves to get my fix.
Thanks for the ride CSL!

Josh and his crew really know how to get you hooked on surfing! I caught my first wave on my first try with him and have been surfing ever since. I took a second lesson with a different instructor there and he was just as good. I've seen him teaching kids and he seems to be great with them, Highly recommend. more »

An amazing experience overall. The instructors are so knowledgable, friendly and really cater the lessons to their clientele. I came for one lesson, and ended up booking 3. I was hooked. Loved the coaching skills that the guys have, their experiencing in educating surfers of all abilities is evident. I would absolutely recommend Charleston Surf Lessons to family & friends. more »

I had a dream come true, and have wanted this for myself for many years. Learning to surf at the age of 50. Josh and all the folks that help are so patient and kind. When they tell you that you will surf that day.... first time you become a surfer with the most secure and faithful instructors to show you how. I got up and felt the best thrill. I will return! ❤ hooked on Sherry. more »

This was my second time surfing, and had some great runs. Waves were perfect for a beginner and after labor day, beach wide open. Great session! more »

I went and took a one hour private lesson with my adult son, as a class full of young children and teens went on nearby. The staff were very nice, and started with the basics, explaining what we needed to know to get the idea conceptually, then took us into the water. They read the waves, set up a routine that allowed us many attempts to stand in that hour, and got us both up enough to be ready to learn a little steering. They gave us enough information to challenge us, but not so much as to overwhelm us. Good equipment, nice venue, kind, enthusiastic, helpful people. I wound up going back and now use what they taught me with my own equipment at other places on the coast. Can't recommend it enough.. more »

Josh and his team do an excellent job. I hadn't been on a board in 20 years, and after taking a lesson, I was up on my second wave! One thing I noticed is just how great they are as teachers, with the ability to teach and coach so many different types of abilities at various ages. Check them out! more »

Despite the strong choppy current when I went, I still had a blast! The entire crew was fun and informative and very encouraging. It was certainly a challenge but I cannot wait to try again.
FYI
- the website says meet by the tent but they have a shack on the south side of Tides hotel. more »
