Our surf lessons emphasize Atlantic Ocean safety and teach the basic fundamentals of surfing while creating a fun experience for the whole family with memories that will assuredly last a lifetime!



Surf lessons are available year-round on the private white sand beach in front of The Dunes House inside the legendary Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort.

Weekend availability varies. Please call Hilton Head Outfitters to check the schedule. Class times change each day depending on high tide. All surf lessons run for 90 minutes and require pre-registration.




The minimum age for group lessons is seven years old. Children five or six years old are welcome but require private instruction to ensure safety in the water and to have help constantly available for handling the surfboard. Adults of all ages are always welcome!
