    What to Expect
    When visiting the Outer Banks of North Carolina, don’t miss out on one of its most thrilling activities — riding the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Enjoy a safe, high-quality surfing experience with personal attention from an NSSIA-certified instructor.

    A private surf lesson affords a family or group of friends a personal experience in a private setting with dedicated instructors. All ages are welcome to learn how to surf. A private surf lesson features two hours of instruction, including surf etiquette, water safety, board safety, the basics of paddling, the basics of riding, plus at least 90 minutes of wave-catching and riding.

    The surf lessons include a custom-made, soft surfboard — available in 11 different sizes to fit any need — plus a wetsuit (if the water is cool) and a shady beach tent. The course is guaranteed to have no less than one instructor for every two participants.

    Book now for Nags Head in the Outer Banks.

    I have always wanted to try surfing but being from Pittsburgh, PA the only time I'm near waves is on vacation. At 42 I thought maybe I'm too old or not in shape enough to do it. I finally just decided to sign up and try it. My instructor Rick was awesome, made me feel very
