Outer Banks, North Carolina

Healthcare Workers | Surfing

The Outer Banks of North Carolina is known for its warm waters, golden beaches, and consistent surf break. You’ll spend four days honing your surfing skills with our longtime outfitter, Farmdog Surf School. After epic days spent catching waves, you’ll kick back at our gorgeous ocean-front house to relax, enjoy homemade meals prepared by First Descents Chefs, and enjoy campfires with a new community of FD friends!

There will be two separate weeks of Healthcare Worker Outer Banks Surfing programs in 2022.
