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!! A typical Outer Banks 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 wih us!!
