About Me

My name is Sean Griffin and I am the owner/operator of Sean's Private Surf Instruction. I am 29 years old and my hometown is Wrightsville Beach, NC. I started off teaching family friends how to surf when I was 15. In the mean time, I've worked at Surf City Surf Shop and gone to school; from Wrightsville Beach Elementary all the way up to UNCW where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree; Cameron School of Business (Marketing) 2008. My favorite hobby is traveling. I also enjoy writing, reading, playing music, building surfboards, bicycling, skateboarding and crafty art work. My favorite type of food is Mexican; hands down! My life motto: Keep it simple stupid!

Word On The Beach

"I cannot say enough good things about Sean's Private Surf Instruction. Sean, Riley, Conrad, and Sam were fantastic instructors. We brought them a large group of ten kids and two adults, none of whom have ever been on a surfboard and three of whom could not swim. Sean started the lesson with really valuable water safety tips and those tips were taught in such a clear cut, non scary way that my kids used the advice the entire time we were on the beach. Sean and his team gave wonderful lessons and were endlessly patient and helpful. My children had SO MUCH FUN. I was extremely nervous, but Sean and the his team were so calm, I couldn't help but have a good time. AND, I actually got up on the board and rode some waves!" -Katy Bell.
