We teach all ages, from five year olds to adults. We provide professional instruction for all levels, from beginner to advanced. We have a passion for riding waves…whether it’s your first wave or your 100th, come join us!

Getting to Folly Beach

 Getting to the beach and the waves is easy. Isla Surf School will get you there in our Surf Suburban, which seats up to seven clients. We will pick you up from any downtown Charleston location and drive you back after your surf lesson.


Lifeguard Certified

Our instructors are CPR and First Aid certified and have at least four years experience teaching surfing. On top of that, many of our instructors are Lifeguard certified. Our priority is your safety. Our private lessons give each client focused and expert instruction, and in our group lessons and camp programs our student-to-instructor ratio is never higher than 3-to-1. We place a heavy emphasis on educating clients and students on the many variables of surf conditions, as well as the importance of surf etiquette, which leads to skilled and safe surfers.
