Ocean Safety SPI Sessions

As we gear up for another exciting season at the School of Surf and Ocean Safety, we want to take a moment to highlight our commitment to ensuring a safe and enriching experience for all campers. At SPI Sessions Summer Camps, ocean safety isn't just a priority; it's ingrained in every aspect of our program.

Our mission goes beyond teaching kids aged 5-18 how to ride the waves. We empower them with the knowledge and skills to navigate the ocean responsibly and confidently. Here's a glimpse into the special attention we dedicate to ocean safety:

  1. Comprehensive Education: Our curriculum extends beyond surfing techniques. Campers learn to identify potential hazards, understand beach protocols, and recognize the signs of rip currents.
  2. Respect and Awareness: We instill a deep respect for fellow water users and marine life. By fostering awareness, campers develop a profound connection with the ocean while prioritizing safety.
  3. Emergency Preparedness: From calling for help to interacting with lifeguards, campers gain essential skills to respond effectively in beach emergencies.
  4. Personalized Supervision: We conduct swim assessments to tailor supervision levels accordingly. Campers with varying swimming abilities receive extra support, including the option to wear life vests when not surfing.
  5. Surf Smart Practices: Through warm-up routines, understanding beach signs, and assessing their own swimming skills, campers learn to surf smart and stay alert in the water.
  6. Proximity to Lifeguard Support: Barry's Beach Bar situates us right in front of a full-time city lifeguard on duty. This strategic positioning enhances our ability to patrol the waters effectively, ensuring a safer environment for all.
  7. Certified Instructors: Our instructors are not only passionate about surfing but also equipped with CPR/first aid certification. They're seasoned veterans, diligently watching over the water and ready to respond to any situation with expertise and care.

By imparting this comprehensive ocean safety education, we aim to enhance campers' comfort and excitement in the ocean. Whether they're catching their first wave or exploring the coastline, they do so with confidence and respect.

At SPI Sessions, the joy of surfing is complemented by a profound understanding of ocean safety. Join us as we dive into a summer filled with learning, adventure, and waves!
