I have surfed a few times before and was excited to get a formal lesson. We had rented surfboards last summer from Tony and were so impressed with him so we decided to take a lesson on our next trip to Carolina Beach. The school is very well organized and Tony is one of the top longboard surfers in the... More

I gave my daughter and her 2 children a treat to a surf lesson. According to then it was outstanding. I'm not sure how they get so strong, but all the instructors (Hall, Lenny and Tony) were outstanding. They all had a blast.

My 9 and 11 year old daughters took a week camp with Tony and his staff that was one of their most memorable weeks of the summer. Tony has a gift with relating to others and recruiting classy, respectable mates to help teach kids of all ages (adults, too!) how to be effective in the water with a board. He... More

The first time I went to CB, Tony and his team gave Surfing lessons to my athletic teen sons. The kids had a blast. This year, I and my also middle-aged brother went. Our lessons were very different, but perfect for us. When we had enough of the waves, we dropped the boards at the rental kiosk (right off the... More

Professional, fun and well managed. We wanted an activity the whole family could do. Tony and his instructors took amazing care of us. We went for a group activity of 1 instructor per 2 students, but we had the highest waves of the season and for safety, the promoted a 1-1 ratio. Everyone felt secure and we all after the... More

My son and I took a 1 hour lesson and we had a great time. We met Tony (owner and pro surfer). Of course my son was able to ride a few waves during the lesson, I on the other hand, required a little more coaching!!! My husband was able to video our attempts to ride the waves! Our instructors,... More

We've been coming to Carolina Beach as a family since I was a kid, and now I bring my own children. Surf Camp was the best money I've ever spent here and definitely an experience my children will never forget. In fact, they already want to know how soon they can sign up for next year's camp! The program is... More

My son (14) and I (49) both participated in a week of Surf Camp. I had practically no experience surfing and my son had never been on a surf board. The camp was 2 hours a day for 5 days. We were both standing up and riding waves on our first day...wow! Tony and his staff run an outstanding program.... More

Tony and his staff are very friendly and great at teaching first time surfers. My instructor was Travis and he had me surfing in just a few minutes.

I wish there were more stars! These guys (and gals) are top notch. We booked a surf lesson for five kiddos (ages 5, 6, 7, 8, and 12). Tony worked with us for a few days while we figured out who was going to be taking a lesson, etc. He was patient, helpful and super friendly. Once we arrived at... More
