SURF CAMP INSTRUCTORS

We are looking for great surfers who love sharing their passion for riding waves, and truly are able to coach kids and teens well.
 
College students off for the summer, make great surf camp instructors!  Year after year, they can come back to Aqua Surf to teach and there will always be a job waiting for them.  In the past, we’ve also hired local surfers, people in the entertainment industry, pro-surfers, and students that have gone through our counselor-in-training program.
