To provide an authentic surfing experience for all skill levels.
Who we are
Corky Carroll’s Surf School is a family-owned and operated business. We have been teaching surf lessons since 1996; our surf school in Nosara, Costa Rica has been running since 1998.
How we got started
At the WindanSea surf shop on Main St., Huntington Beach, Rick Walker approached Corky Carroll with the surf school concept. Carroll agreed to Rick’s proposal. It was October of 1995, the beginning of any surf school to appear in Huntington Beach.
The business was named after Corky Carroll- not only for his professional surf career, but also for being a Huntington Beach icon. His professional accomplishments include winning over 100 surfing competitions, four-time national surfing champion and five-time international champion. He is responsible for the fundamentals and techniques that we still use today.
Rick Walker announced his retirement in the summer of 2014. Walker’s children, Kelsey and Collin, along with their spouses, have been the owners of Corky Carroll’s Surf School since then.
