Kyle Busey was born and raised in Charleston and is arguably the best surfer to ever emerge from SC. He started to surf at age 11 and quickly became the National Champion by 14. After winning multiple state, regional, and East Coast titles he pursued a path of professional surfing. He created Carolina Salt to share his passion with Charleston!

In between traveling and competing professionally he loves to share his love of surfing and surfing knowledge with others.

“I don’t travel or compete nearly as much anymore, so I like to spend my time passing my knowledge that you can only acquire from years of traveling and competing onto those willing to learn. What I have done is simplified the learning to surf process and by doing so have made it fool proof. I love passing on my secrets of successfully surfing onto others.”
