    The Throwdown Surf School Team is the total package! When Cara found out my family was spending most of the summer on the Outer Banks, she recommended I check out surf lessons for my kids. I had a million questions and she had prompt answers. I’ve known and admired Cara for a long time, so I was excited to hang out with my friend while my children were entertained in the water. Then I met her husband, Greg. I cannot stress how much I appreciate and admire the patience of Greg and Jason as they taught my family how to surf. My kids caught waves! They were bitten by the surf bug and we immediately signed up for more lessons. In fact, my son chose to spend his 13th birthday participating in the Throwdown Surf Classic, where, once again, Greg was a lifesaver as this mama was getting thrown around in red flag waves! But what really stands out to me is Greg and Cara’s faith. That’s what really makes Throwdown Surf School separate from the rest. Their faith in God shines both in their business practice and in their interactions with the students. Greg’s passion for surfing and encouraging teaching skills has inspired us to continue the surfing saga right down to a new surfboard showing up by the tree on Christmas morning! We look forward to Summer 2018 when we can get back out there and ride the waves (with additional lessons from Greg, of course). Thank you, Throwdown Surf School!

    “When it comes to surf lessons in the OBX,  there is no better choice than Throwdown Surf School.  My three daughters were both nervous and excited to start their lesson.  Greg took his time to connect and get to know each of them, so it made the transition from the shore lesson to being on the board in the water much easier.  Two of the girls managed to get up pretty easily, but the oldest struggled a bit.  Greg was determined to have her "catch the perfect wave" and she did.  The smile that was on her face after she stood up and rode it all the way in, made the day all worth it.  This surf lesson was by far the highlight of our vacation! We are already planning on scheduling again when we visit next summer.  Thanks Greg, Cara, and Throwdown Surf School."

    My boys have deemed the Throwdown Surf Camp as “the best camp of the summer”! They were part of the 10 to 12 year old boys camp last summer and were so excited to not only spend a day with their peers but also to receive expert surfing advice from well known local instructors they have so much respect for. The camp had my boys so pumped up and excited to learn more that we continued with private lessons from Greg. The knowledge they gained about the water and the new techniques they learned had them surfing independently through the remainder of the summer. They can’t wait for the warmer water temperatures to get here so I️ can sign them up for more private lessons. The Throwdown Surf Camps and lessons are awesome and will be part of my boys summers for many years to come!
