Isla Surf's founder, Peter Melhado, has traveled the world in search of waves and fascinating cultures. His travels have taken him everywhere from Portugal, Costa Rica, Barbados, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Montauk to California. Peter has been a senior instructor at surf schools on Nantucket Island and at Rockaway Beach for the past eight years. Even as Peter explored remote locations thousands of miles away from Charleston and Folly Beach, he always found his way back to the Holy City. As long as there's a breaking wave, from six inches to six feet, you will find Peter in the water. His love of meeting new people, sharing the surfing experience, of Charleston, and Folly Beach led to the creation of Isla Surf
