  • Group Lessons: These 1.5-hour lessons (consisting of 15 minutes of on-beach instruction followed by an hour and 15 minutes of in-the-water instruction) are open to aspiring surfers of all ages and skill levels. The lessons include surfboards and all other needed equipment, and class size tops out at 15 people. Scheduled daily in Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, these lessons are available for as little as $45 per person.
  • Private Lessons: These 1.5-hour lessons — available to small groups or as one-on-one sessions — come with a guarantee that participants will be standing up and riding waves before session completion! The surf instructor will meet the student (and his or her party, if applicable) right on their chosen beach and will bring along all needed surfboard(s) and additional equipment. This type of lesson costs as little as $55.
  • Party Lessons: Looking to celebrate a special occasion in the surf? This two-hour lesson can accommodate, and it’s perfect for kids’ birthday parties and other fun get-togethers. It can be held at the time and on-beach location of the students’ choosing, and it includes all needed equipment, with photography and Kokopelli T-shirts available for purchase. In addition, for groups of 10 or more, a free GoPro camera rental is included for documenting the group’s on-the-water adventures!

  • Kids’ Surf Camp: At a Kokopelli surf camp, participating children get the opportunity to spend three days learning from the pros at some of the Myrtle Beach area’s best surf spots. All needed equipment is provided, and there’s guaranteed to be at least one instructor on hand for every three participating students. Camp participants also get to learn about surf games, join in some friendly surf competitions, and walk away with some photos and surf gear — all for just $180. Further, all participants are guaranteed to catch a wave!
