Very few North American oceanside destinations rival Myrtle Beach in terms of family-friendly oceanic activities, such as sky-high parasailing, deep-sea fishing, kayaking excursions, and boat tours. Add surfing to that list. Because Myrtle Beach’s high tides aren’t overly harsh, we couldn’t think of a better place for your kids to learn the sport. Many visiting families here at Ocean Annie’s Resorts often drift into the surf near our renowned beach bar with their youngins in search of modest waves. Surfers young and old will be happy to learn that the Grand Strand boasts several reputable surf camps, shops, and rental services. Finding a surfboard rental in Myrtle Beach has never been easier. So, grab your GPS, pack the car, and set a course for sunny Shore Drive!
Surf Lessons in Myrtle Beach
For those aiming to get their feet wet, we recommend surf lessons at two nearby outposts: Kokopelli Surf Camp and Jack’s Surf Lessons. Kokopelli has three distinct locations, two of which are a short drive from the resort. Thus, you’re likely to land a last-minute private or group reservation. With lessons starting at $35 per person and a 1:3 teacher-to-student ratio, you’re bound to have a stellar surf experience. Before paddling into the water, you’ll learn the ins and outs of the sport, including form, etiquette, safety, and techniques. Their experienced staff will ensure that your little ones ride their first waves this summer.
Find a Surfboard Rental in Myrtle Beach
Kokopelli Surf Camp and Jack’s Surf Lessons are known for their introductory courses and camps. But you’ll also be able to find a suitable surfboard rental in Myrtle Beach that matches your child’s height and weight. Many families rent boards for a full week as each extra day only costs $10. It’s not uncommon for families to take lessons at the beginning of their trip and follow it with several days of surfing via a multi-day rental. Kokopelli will deliver the board right to our beach if you like. Otherwise, you can visit one of their locations whenever you want.
The Best Surf Shop in Myrtle Beach
Thanks to the friendly folks at Kokopelli and Jack’s, finding an affordable surfboard rental in Myrtle Beach is a piece of cake. However, if you wish to purchase new boards, swimwear, or stylish gear, we highly recommend visiting Bert’s Surf Shop or Surf City Surf Shop during your stay. Bert’s has the best selection of new and used boards, while Surf City has an eclectic mix of swimwear and gear, as well as a hip surfer’s lounge.
