"Very professional, affable and experienced group. My kids had a blast and learned alot. The school progressed from day to day with compounded education. We had a friend of my son join in half way in and the group and instructors were able to accommodate. Staff was superb and well liked by kids in school. Also very customer friendly to parents along the way. Carston did an excellent job overall. Highly recommend"

"My girls wanted to learn how to surf, so we decided to take a small group lesson from Carolina Surf School. It was a great decision! The instructor was enthusiastic and relatable. He helped the girls feel comfortable and basic techniques. They were able to stand up by the end of the lesson! We'll be hiring CSS again when we're back to OIB"
