Why OIB Surf Camp?
With safety being our highest priority, our experienced instructors build a lesson plan focused on creating a fun, safe, environment to learn one of the world’s coolest sports.
We take what we do very seriously and understand the great responsibilities that come with practicing water activities.
That’s why we’ve assembled a team with a hyper focus on these core values. Let’s meet the team below.
Meet the Team
Jesse McCrery has been surfing forever. He is the owner of JM Surfboards where he shapes custom made surfboards for surfers up and down the East Coast. As a child, Jesse spent most of his days surfing and exploring the coast, traveling wherever the best surf could be found. As a 5 time East Coast Surfing Champion, Jesse had the opportunity to travel the world, spending time in a handful of beach towns. After high school Jesse began his professional career as a surfboard shaper, starting his own line of custom handmade surfboards. JM Surfboards was started in 2000 and continues on today, still handshaped by Jesse in Ocean Isle Beach. Jesse continued to hone his creative talents in the building industry as a custom finish carpenter, working with a successful area builder. Ultimately it was Jesse’s love for people and surfing that led him to open a Retail and Coffee Shop in Ocean Isle Beach in 2011 which he sold in 2016. Jesse continues to share his passion for the ocean with children as co-owner of OIB Surf Camp
Joey Polino is 17 years old and has been surfing for the past 3 years here in Ocean Isle Beach. Joey developed his surfing passion while attending OIB Surf Camp when he was only 12 years old and has been hooked on surfing ever since! Joey moved down to Ocean Isle Beach 7 years ago from the Boston area and just loves living at the beach! When Joey isn’t catching a wave in the summer, he is out fishing or playing Fort Night with his buddies. Joey also plays football for West Brunswick High School where he is an honor roll student and a member of DECA.
