Tommy and crew made our efforts to surf thoroughly enjoyable. Despite the weather they came each day committed to providing a positive yet safe experience for all. We did get to see some big waves on our third day of lessons. The crew waited until things calmed down to begin lessons. It was a great show to watch the pros out there that morning taking on the 8 to 10 footers. Highly recommended. more »

Our two teenagers and their friends had a great time! Our daughter didn't want to do it at all! But once she was in the water she was smiling ! They all really enjoyed it and would do it again . Josh was great at getting them ready for the water. Once out in the ocean their instructor , Mindy, did a wonderful job! She kept getting them up and surfing! Loved watching them surf! I know they will want to do it again next year! more »

These guys were super nice! The owner came up to us on the beach and offered us lessons. They did a 30 minute lesson on the beach to get us ready for the waves, and then took us out to the water. Hampton was amazing - very patient and lots of fun. He took the time to work through issues with us to make sure we were all successful. The massive sunburn was so worth it! Wear extra sunscreen on the backs of your legs, and prepare yourself for a lot of fun. more »

My daughters and I had a great time learning to surf with Tommy on Mother's Day. I never expected to be able to actually stand up but we were all doing it in no time. It was a lot of fun and the highlight of my trip. We felt safe and well informed. more »

I am from landlocked Western Pennsylvania, but had spent summers on the beach in New Jersey and had been on a surfboard 55 years ago but had never stood up. That was an item on my bucket list.
W
e planned a trip to Charleston and I found Charleston Surf Lessons on line and booked a private lesson. Being 65 years old I did not want to embarrass myself in a group.
Tommy was fantastic. His patience and encouragement had me standing in no time.
My wife and son were watching on the beach and my enthusiasm must have been to obvious. My wife immediately asked if I wanted to do it again and so I took a second lesson the next day. Did better, and would have gone for a third day but our vacation was over.
Can't say enough about Tommy. Besides the instruction, he was entertaining as well.
Would absolutely recommend Charleston Surf Lessons to anyone and everyone.

My girlfriend and I booked a semi-private lesson which could have had up to 3 people but ended up just being the 2 of us. Our instructor was knowledgeable, friendly, and great at explaining techniques and safety concerns. Our instructor had us both standing up and riding waves quickly. Highly recommended. more »

Tommy gave our 12 year old a lesson today, and we thought he was phenomenal. He was highly attentive in and out of the water. Under his instruction, she was up and surfing quickly. Would highly recommend to anyone, especially parents looking for a safe, fun environment. more »

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!
