My 10 year old took lessons for the first time. There was a very good ratio of students to instructors. The instructors were personable and easy to talk to - well mannered too. They did a good job explaining the basics and safety, then the students had lots of time to practice. My son would definitely to it again -... More

Took our first surf lesson with Palmetto Surf School. Loved it. We are ages 48, 21, 18, and 17 (my husband took pictures). We went in March 2014 and did a quick lesson on the beach then hit the water. The instructors were great. I would recommend trying surfing and give Palmetto Surf School a call. Since coming back to... More

My 4 kids spent one day in surf camp, and loved every minute of it. Staff did a good job reviewing the basics and then helping them all get up on the board and ride a wave in. They adjusted to the different levels easily -- one child got it right away, and they kept it fun by challenging her... More

This past April, my son and I scheduled a lesson with the Myrtle Beach Surf School after talking about it for the past 5 years. My only regret is that I didn't do this 5 years ago. Cole and Phil were great teachers - very knowledgeable and supportive. We liked it so much, we signed up for lessons again the... More

The highlight of our trip was a spectacular private surf lesson with Cole Richards. The authentic surf shop sets the tone, then a quick ride to a secluded beach for an awesome surfing experience. The value far exceeds the price. Do this before a helicopter ride and parasailing. Bring money to tip, you will want to show gratitude!

Totally worth every penny! I would have to say that my friends talked me into this one, and I am so happy they did!! They supply the board and took us to a nice, uncrowded beach where we felt comfortable enough to learn.. With my instructors help I was up in three goes. I will totally do this again with... More

My family and I went to Myrtle Beach Surf School last summer. The instructors were great and the kids had a amazing time. Every kid should learn to surf. This was by far the highlight of our trip
