The mission of our Surf Camp is to help create knowlgeable surfers to keep surfing safe, and fun for everyone! We strive to maintain Student to Staff Ratios of four to one (4:1). Water ratio is four to one (4:1), and general beach staff ratios are four to one (4:1). Ratios depend on safety, maturity, and experience of the group. Our camp is centered on fun filled days at the beach while learning how to surf. In the mornings we stretch, warm-up, and the surf for about two hours. After surfing, we eat lunch, and relax under the tent or in some shade. Then we play some beach games for about thirty minutes. Once everyone is ready, we all go surf, and swim for another two hours.
What To Bring : Towel, Lunch/Food, Water, Hat and Sunscreen, Warm Clothes to wear on the beach while resting. While we provide wetsuits and booties if you have your own bring them. Bring a jacket or heavy sweatshirt for wearing over the top of your wetsuit during lunch. This is would be a jacket you do not mind getting wet. Bring a bag for storing wet items.
We also offer a full selection of Adult Surf lessons on an as scheduled basis. Click here for Adult Surf Lessons Information.
