Peter and his staff are great with all age kids! We bring a group of students who are learning English every summer to Isla Surf School and this is by far their favorite day and activity in Charleston! more »

We had a great time learning to surf with Peter and his team of instructors. Even in rough conditions, we all got up for a few rides. They kept us safe the whole time and we would definitely recommend them. more »

You threw a lot of information at us. But you were also patient and encouraging. We lucked out with a beautiful day and we’re very appreciative of your flexibility. (I bet you don’t get a lot of December customers!). My daughter now says surfing is her second favorite sport. Thank you for a great experience! more »

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 »

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.
