My kids have surfed with the instructors on two occasions. They had a blast and learned to be confident in the water. We could not have had a better experience with the school. The entire staff is amazing with the kids and they really know what they are doing. What a great way to learn to surf and make some memories. more »

Peter was an awesome instructor. His experience and passion for surfing made my first time such an enjoyable experience. I ended up standing and surfing multiple times throughout the day due to his instruction. The weather wasn’t great and he was very accommodating with our time. Anyone coming to the Charleston area should check it out. I’ll be back! more »

Best Surf Instruction in Charleston! Safety is top priority! Exceptionally professional both owner, Peter, and head instructor, Trip. As a beginner surfer, was put at ease knowing Trip had 25 yrs surf experience. His passions for surfing & conservation, combined with expert knowledge, dedication, patience, positivity, & eagerness to see the student succeed all while having fun, is what makes Isla stand out from the rest! Super impressed! Thanks so much guys! Looking forward to my next lessons! more »

We had an amazing experience recently with Isla Surf School. Thank you to Peter, Tripp, and our other instructors for making our group surf lesson a day to remember! We had a group of (10) teen and tween Girl Scouts. The guys were so patient and helpful in teaching the girls to surf- in rougher than normal conditions. We all walked away exhilarated and eager for more surfing! Peter arranged our reservations and payment and it couldn't have been a smoother process. I highly recommend Isla Surf- a professional surf school with top notch customer service. more »

I surfed with Peter and Isla Surf School for the first time last week. I have a little experience but have a new board I needed to become accustomed to. Peter did a fantastic job pinpointing what I needed to work so that I was able to successfully ride my board. He gets all the credit for making my birthday and my surfday successful. I can't wait to go back and take it to the next level!! more »

About

Edit
Isla Surf School Founded: 2015

Why Did You Start Isla? I started working for surf schools when I was 15 and fell in love with sharing the joy of surfing. I spent my summers during high school and college as an instructor for Nantucket Surfari and when I graduated from the College of Charleston in 2014 I headed down to Costa Rica for four months to be a surf instructor in the town of Santa Teresa. When I returned to the US, I worked for Locals Surf School in Rockaway, New York.

I had been a surf instructor for many years by the time it was 2015 and felt extremely confident in my abilities as a teacher and coach and decided it was time to open my own school. I had seen the best of the best and the worst of the worst in terms of surf schools on the East Coast and throughout the world and because of this I had a very clear vision for Isla. I wanted Isla to provide the highest quality lessons in a professional and fun atmosphere.
