The boys were excited and scared before the lesson and after they were exhausted and totally ready to go at it again. Their instructor, CT was great! He kept them all focused and ready for the next wave. It was so much fun that we...More

my 2 teenage girls had a lesson with Victoria. The conditions were challenging and Victoria did a great job teaching them how to navigate these conditions and improve their skills. They would like to go again next summer.

This is our second time using Charleston Surf Lessons. Both experiences were wonderful! The instructors are awesome and the kids had a blast. I highly recommend them.

This the 3rd time my teenager(15) has taken a lesson over the last 2 years. As usual, it was an awesome experience and we will go back again. I can't say enough great things about CSL. It's worth every penny.

Great surf lessons. Everyone got up and were surfing after 15 minutes in the water. The wave conditions were less than ideal, and the surf instructor literally waded in the water to make sure everyone in our group were perfectly position to catch a wave...More
