We love to teach surfing because we believe that the more we teach, the more we learn!
And Surfing is that kind of sport that you can keep on learning forever.

about us

Our Surf School was born in May 2004. The idea was to do the work that we love and use our worldwide experience from a full life dedicated to this sport and life style. We thought that Folly Beach was missing a fun and responsible surf school, that dedicates full time to teaching the Soul of Surfing. Incorporating generations of experience with intuition and passion for surfing.

The surf camps are very special for Us, the act of just being around a group of kids is a refreshing and rejoicing experience!

Surfing has always been a part of Grace's life since she was little and she couldn’t be more thankful. Grace loves surfing for the thrill of it and because it’s great exercise with her family and friends. There’s no place Grace feels better than in the water and surfing. She's surfed in the British Virgin Islands, Nicaragua, California and all along the East Coast. Surfing is something Grace hopes she can share with everyone.
