About Us

Serving the Outer Banks since 2007

Our company began as a surf school operating out of a local surf shop–and a trusty pickup truck–as our founder, Robert Farmer, shared his love of the ocean with locals and visitors alike. Farmdog Surf School was incorporated in 2009, and in 2013, we moved into our first building, the historic Scarborough’s Garage in Nags Head’s Gallery Row district. We expanded our operations to include beach gear rentals and a coffee shop with a selection of healthy groceries, skincare, and Farmdog apparel for sale. Today our new headquarters are located in the former Morales Art Gallery building where we operate Farmdog Beach Services. As we watch our families and the Outer Banks area grow, we pride ourselves on delivering a convenient, safe, and fun experience to our customers through our high-quality beach setup services, which include paddleboard rental, beach chairs and umbrellas, and cabana rental. Though our business has evolved over the years, our mission remains the same–to promote a healthy and active outdoor lifestyle and to share it with our loyal customers who love the Outer Banks as much as we do.
