She hit a minor set back at her first lesson of the week when she got smashed in the face with her board but she hopped right back onto it Thursday and kept chugging along. She had the most fun with these two guys. She and Dave... More

We rented a few boards from the surf shop. They were knowledgeable and helped us along. We are not water sports people so the help was needed and greatly appreciated.

Andy was such a great surf instructor! Both of our boys were able to get up multiple times and fell in love with surfing. We rented a surfboard and body suit for the week because they had so much fun. Back at the beach, we had trouble helping them get up (positioning the surf board, etc.) and Gary (the owner... More

My friends and I rented 2 kayaks last weekend and we could not have been more pleased. The guys running the shop drove the kayaks to the beach and picked them up when we were done with them. They offered us plenty of advice as we were first time beach kayakers. They could not have been more friendly or more... More

Brought two bikes to ride for the week and both ended up with flat tires. Took them to Corolla Surf shop and they fixed them both for free. It only took a few minutes, too. WOW-no one does that anymore. Thanks for the great service!!

Gary was great! My family learned to paddleboard in 1 lesson and enjoy going out on the sound with him. He was a pleasure, friendly, funny, and engaging!

I took a private paddle board lesson from Gary on my last trip to Corolla. We went to a beautiful spot about a mile from his shop that was perfect for a beginner yet had opportunities for a more advanced paddler. Gary is like an old college friend you haven't seen in years. We had a great time on the... More
