My friend and I decided we have lived in Wilmington far too long to never have tried surfing, so we signed up for a morning lesson and loved EVERY MINUTE of it. Our instructors, Greg and Nick, were so good with us. They gave great instruction, kept us safe, got us catching waves in no time and were so fun to hang with! We'll be out there again soon! Thank you to Sean's Surf and Greg and Nick!!

My kids absolutely loved their experience. Carson was amazing with my 7 and 5 year old. They had never surfed before and she made them feel comfortable and had them surfing in no time. Everyone was extremely helpful and answered all of my questions. We were traveling from MN and I was a bit nervous about sending them into the ocean on surf boards. Thank you for the great memories!

This was my first surf lesson and I knew nothing about surfing. Great price. My hotel was asking 25 dollars more for 30 mins less. Private lesson is the way to go because you get specialized attention, protection, and instruction on what to work on. Riley was so considerate, explained things well, thoughtful, and a great teacher. He floats right beside you and he often sacrificed himself with big waves to make sure I didn't go under or get thrown off. He really eases the nerves. I would use them again.

I was able to arrange private surfing lessons one day in advance at the exact time I wanted with an instructor that my daughter really liked - Haley. We also have used the same company in prior years and had wonderful lessons with Taylor for my other daughter. Very easy scheduling and they show up at your door on time and ready to surf!
