Help ban Plastic Straws & Stirrers on South Padre Island
In an effort to minimize plastic pollution, SPI Sessions has joined the global movement for a Strawless Ocean. As eco-conscious beach life instructors we are constantly engaged in better our beaches, environment and ocean that surrounds our beautiful home on South Padre Island. We hope that our efforts in conservation, education and outreach will prompt our city to enforce an ordinance to ban plastic straws on South Padre Island.

SPI SESSIONS for a Strawless Ocean
"Our boys had the most amazing experience with SPI Sessions. We took two-days of private surf lessons with Aarin and her team and our boys are forever surfers and lovers of the ocean. We highly recommend SPI Sessions!Miranda Howell
"We had an amazing time learning to SUP the bay of SPI. We didn't know there was so much to look for on that side. Not only were we first time stand-up paddleboarding, but our instructor was incredibly knowledgable about the area and the environment. We felt like we were on a guided tour of SPI!Lambert Perrini
"I thought I would never learn to surf. I'm 50 years old and always wanted to try. My sister booked a lesson for me and we had a great time. I was able to stand on my own by the end of the lesson, a dream come true! Thank you SPI Sessions!"Linda Lowery
“My ten year old daughter had a fabulous time at surf camp! Every day was something new, and I loved that the kids were happy yet well-supervised. Worth every penny!”ROBIN ARMSTRONG-STEPAN
“Three of my children attended SPI Sessions Summer Camp last Summer. They had a BLAST! Aside from learning how to surf the instructors were so amazing with my children. They broke up the day in to several activities where not only did they learn surfing, but they also had science lessons through out the day. They learned about the ecosystems as well as mythology. My children keep asking when they can go back with Miss Aarin and Miss Lorin. We are anxious for the summer to get here so they can go back. As an educator myself, I highly recommend this summer camp!”ERIKA JAROSS
"This is a camp you don’t want to miss! It’s all my boys wanted to do for the summer. Aarin and her staff are very knowledgeable and keep it fun all day. The kids love them and still talk about them and their experiences at the beach!”INEKE COPENHAVER-PLOEGH
