Bobby Drought and the crew behind Rhody Surf spent 10 years teaching surf lessons for fun in and around Aquidneck Island before coming together to form a business. Today, this group of certified instructors spreads an infectious love of surfing to as many people as possible, not even bothering to establish a traditional brick-and-mortar shop—lessons are either online or at the beach. Their students learn through private or group lessons, mastering simple movements on dry land before hitting the Atlantic's fully customizable waves. Rhody Surf also offers surf camps for children, as well as surfing excursions for individuals visiting on cruise ships.
