We offer Surf & Paddleboard Lessons The Carolina Waterman is a local nonprofit organization which organized for the purpose of educating our visitors about our local waters and the variety of ways to enjoy those waters. In order to help fund our mission we self generate funds by charging non-residents for one of a kind waterman experiences around Myrtle Beach. Whether you are looking for a calm and relaxing tour of our Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge or interested in a gnarly day of learning how to surf in Myrtle Beach... The Carolina Waterman is the place for you. By supporting the Carolina Waterman you are supporting the growth of a healthy and responsible "waterman" community along the Grand Strand. We are currently developing the Carolina Waterman "Jr. Waterman Program" which will provide local middle schoolers with a variety of free opportunities to learn about our water. Please follow the Carolina Waterman, share our stoke, and come out for an unforgettable experience!

Fantastic way to spend time with friends from medical school! The beauty of nature, science and the wonderful team. None of us thought we would make it upright, but none of us fell for the 2 hours spent!

That really depends on personal preference! Our favorite time for lessons is usually 2 hours before - 2 hours after the high tide. Mornings usually have calmer winds and nicer weather though! Mornings for sure!
