Nantucket Island Surf School
Nantucket's South Shore is ideal for surfing. On most days—even in the winter—you can find a surfer or two in wetsuits braving the waves. Visitors that want to get a feel for the sport can sign up for lessons at the island's surf school. Gary "Kona" Kohner and his crew of surfer dudes provide everything you need to get started on the waves. They offer group lessons and private lessons with the goal of getting you comfortable on the board. All their lessons require booking in advance—don't risk it by trying to grab a spot on a sunny day. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather because classes still run through fog and rain.
