Corky Carroll’s Surf School is located at Bolsa Chica State Beach in Huntington Beach, CA. The state beach provides bathrooms with hot and cold water showers 20 yards from our camp with plenty of parking and easy pick-up and drop-off. A beach break (no rocks) consistently 30% to 40% smaller in wave size compared to other southern California surf breaks. Less crowds and NO agressive locals, giving your youngster the best possible option for conditions making it safer and easier. We offer a variety of surf lesson packages from private lessons to weekly group lessons. Also, check out our surf camp in Costa Rica if you’re looking for an all inclusive surf vacation.
Day in the Life at Corky Carroll Surf School
Real Surfing Fundamentals
We want to make sure our students get the best exposure and knowledge of surfing. We make sure to teach with testing drills to assure the students are getting the most out of their surfing lessons. Here are some surf photos from our Huntington Beach surf camp. We teach the basics, then get the students up and standing in no time.
Authentic Hand-Shaped Surfboards
We use authentic hand-shaped surfboards, opposed to soft boards or manufactured plastics. Being introduced to an authentic hand-shaped surfboard teaches safety and confidence instead of re-learning these skills after switching to a “real” surfboard.
