Inside Palmetto Dunes: Meet Logan Cambron, Hilton Head Surf School Instructor

Lots of families who visit Palmetto Dunes each summer love to learn how to surf in Hilton Head and the experience would not be the same without our fun and colorful surf instructors. 

In this week’s blog, we want to introduce you to Logan Cambron, our surf instructor. Get to know him a little better and come take a surf lesson from Capt Logan! 

What is your job title and what are your responsibilities?

“I’m in charge of the surf program, but I also do kayaks and bikes. I have my captain’s license, so I’m going to be piloting some of the lagoon boats.” 

What is the best part of your job?

“Just the look on [my campers’] faces when they stand all the way up during a surf lesson. I also love getting paid to work on the beach.” 

How did you wind up at Palmetto Dunes?

“I grew up on Hilton Head Island. I know there aren‘t many of us who can say that. As for Palmetto Dunes, I had worked at the General Store... Altogether, I’ve been here eight or nine years.” 

What is the best thing about Hilton Head that most tourists don't know?

“The natural beauty that we’ve kept unspoiled. You have to see it to believe it.” 

What's your favorite spot on the island?

The Dunes House. That’s where I’ve always gone to surf. The surfing is better in the morning before everyone gets out there and it gets windy.” 

What are the two most-played songs on your iPod?

“Well, I don’t have an iPod, but if I did, I’d play ‘409’ by The Beach Boys and ‘Hey, Ya,’ by OutKast.
