I've had several beginner surf lessons over the years and this was, by far, the best. Sean gave great instruction before entering the water and was great giving me insight into which waves to try to catch. He also did all the work carrying the boards and helping in the water. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun.

Sean was a fantastic instructor and a really nice guy. We met up on the beach in the morning, and he had me riding the waves well within the lesson. He is very knowledgeable about surfing and clearly explained several aspects about surfing. I have always wanted to learn to surf, and feel like taking lessons from Sean provided an excellent foundation. Thanks again Sean!

The instructors were helpful and answered all our questions. They get you surfing the waves in no time. The beach you surf on is nice. The parking is a bit of a nightmare so get there early especially on the weekend if you want to find a spot to park. They rent the boards for a longer period of time, but make sure to set that up ahead of time if you want to keep using them after your lesson. It's worth the money!

Our 10 year old wanted to learn how to surf and this is the place to do it! They were able to take us the next day. John was our instructor and he is excellent-very patient. We booked him a second day in a row even! These instructors work so hard. Bring cold water for them. They will love it! The shop on Causeway has a cute coffee cafe next to it too. highly recommend this place.

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!!
