Summer Surf Camps: Children, and teenagers ages five to seventeen years old are invited every summer to attend Aqua Surf Camp. Children, and teenagers gain lifelong positive memories, friends, and surfing skills. We welcome first time newcomers as well as our repeat students who return year after year. Our summer surf camp staff is trained in safety, and hired based on surfing skills, swimming skills, and teaching ability. Regardless of skill level, students will benefit from attending Aqua Surf Camp through our customized, and multilevel instruction, from beginner to advanced courses.

Why choose Aqua Surf School: Our mission is to keep surfing safe, and fun for everyone! For more information, please visit our about page. All of our camp instructors train bi-weekly. Our in-house training program involves extensive swimming, running, emergency response techniques and procedures, and systematic surfing instruction. All staff is CPR, and First Aid Certified. There is always a Certified Ocean Lifeguard on duty during camp sessions.

Student to Staff Ratios: If surf conditions change, so do our student to instructor ratios. Our general student to staff ratio is three to one (3:1). Water ratio is four to one (3:1), and general beach staff ratios are four to one (3:1). Ratios depend on safety, maturity, and experience of the group.  Learn more about our student to instructor ratios.

Who can attend surf camp: First time students, including beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels are encouraged to attend.

Age ranges five to twelve (5-12) years old, and thirteen to seventeen (13-17) years old register for our camps.  We encourage siblings, friends, and family to attend together.

What to expect: Fun filled days at the beach learning how to surf.  In the mornings we stretch, warm-up, and then surf for about two hours. After surfing we eat lunch, and relax under the sun. Then we play some beach games for about thirty minutes. Once everyone is ready we all go surf, and swim for another two hours.
