Duck Surf Lessons

Sanderling Surf Lessons - Kitty Hawk Kayak & Surf School

Our Duck Surf Lessons offer epic, Uncrowded Sand Bars Perfect for beginner shredders

Duck Surf Lessons and Surf Camps are offered daily in Duck at the Sanderling Resort and Spa. This location has some of the best beginner surf lesson sand bars of anywhere on the Outer Banks!!! Combine that with minimal people on the beach and individualized instruction, this is quickly becoming our most popular place for lessons!! After your Duck and Southern Shores Surf Lessons, check out the Sanderlings Sand Bar & Grille for a burger, or go SUPing soundside later that day for a perfect day on the Outer Banks.

A typical Duck and Southern Shores Surf Lesson  lasts 1.5 – 2 hours and begins with a safety talk and learning the anatomy of a surfboard. Next paddling techniques, balance and feet positioning are discussed. Participants then practice popping up onto the surfboard on the beach before getting wet. Our instructors are there to help you catch waves and answer any questions you might have about surfing, the ocean, waves, or surf culture. They shred before or after the lesson so you will spend more time catching waves instead of watching them shred. The OBX has some of the best surf conditions for beginner surf lessons on the East Coast so come on out and shred with us!!

Why Take A Duck and Southern Shores Surf Lesson with Us?

We have been shred-ucating visitors and locals alike of the Outer Banks since 2004 so come on in and shred off in one of our Outer Banks Surf Lessons. The Kitty Hawk Kayak & Surf School was the first surf school on the Outer Banks to receive National Surf School and Instructor Certification for our business, and all instructors are CPR certified, follow the NSSIA guidelines for safe shreducation and have years of experience shredding locally and worldwide!!! We maintain a instructor to student ratio of 1 instructor to every 4 students to insure a safe, fun an educational experience. We also keep a close eye on the ocean with daily surf checks at dawn to make sure the conditions are optimal for surf lessons. That means no shredding on red flag days or days with too much current, drift or big surf. At Kitty Hawk Kayak & Surf School, safety is our number 1 priority!! Our lead instructor Herman Hall has taught people how to surf on four continents and is the area’s first licensed surf instructor and surf coach through the National Surf School and Instructor Association (NSSIA). Put that with our experienced staff, perfect beginner surfboard, warm water and consistent waves, and you have the perfect recipe for shredding.

These surf lessons take place at the Sanderling Resort & Spa, 1461 Duck Road, Duck, North Carolina.

Your surf lesson with us includes a free wetsuit rental if the water is cold. Additionally, surfboards are available for rent after the lesson to continue shredding.
