What more can a beach kid ask for?
The Ultimate Beach and Surf Camp combines surfing with all of the other beach activities kids love- and more! We've taken the best of our passed science, SUP, kite training and action sports camps and put them right on the beach for all ages and skill levels to enjoy.

We do take a significant amount of time in our water related programs to share our knowledge of the ocean. We teach about how to safely swim in open ocean, how to avoid and escape rip currents, how to respect other water users, and awareness of marine life. Campers will learn so much about the ocean that it will increase their comfortability and maximize their amazement and experience in the ocean.

Advanced surfing knowledge begins with mastering a set of skills that will help with overall performance. In each of our summer surf development clinics, surfers will learn by watching surfing techniques performed in slow motion, use balance boards and various balance equipment, use surf-skate boards for maneuverability and technique, and even master a duck dive in a pool. Competitive Surf training will increase surfers awareness of the sport of surfing, culture, and competition criteria.

Our 2-day Summer Surf Development Clinics are offered on Thursdays and Fridays of our Summer Camp Hours (10am-1pm) at our location, 2000 Gulf Blvd. 1-Day “Drop-In” Sessions are also available for those who are unavailable for both clinic days.

Surfing is a variable sport, but there are so many skills and fun ways to experience surfing out of the water. We take pride in making sure that our camps are full of fun things-to-do. We have balance boards, lily pad mats (to roll out and play on in the water), snorkels and SUPS to take out on flat ocean water days). We make sure the kids leave camp with a brain full of surfing knowledge

Group Surf Lessons

SPI Sessions- Group Surf Lessons

Group surf lessons are the most fun and affordable way to try surfing with friends and family. With your own group of 4 or more people, we will personalize our instruction and instructor:student ratio to ensure no one is left out. Our sessions are one hour and provide your group with all of the necessary equipment and instruction to begin. Land lessons are essential to safety and understanding technique on your first day, but don’t worry you will have plenty of time in the water. Each person is equipped with their own board and instructors send each student on a wave following the next. Guidance from coaches will help accelerate each new surfer at their own pace and push them into the best experience each person can have.

SCHEDULE

So what do you do for 3 hours?

SURF!! ...and we have so much fun!

A typical day at surf camp begins with making sure everyone has a SPI SESSIONS jersey on and has all of the safety gear ready and/or on. This includes proper sunscreen protection, hats, long sleeve UV protection and a reusable water bottle on standby. We will review our rules about basic camp etiquette and new guidelines regarding Covid-19.

Stretching and warming up is a great way to start our morning. Kids love the drills and exercises we teach them and our balance challenging games. We next will perform a level assessment check to make sure we can split the campers into pods that are fit to their level of surfing ability.Younger campers with little experience are one-on-one with the instructors while in the water. Older Campers work in the water with our instructors.

Campers are given a land lesson that will review all of methodology and basics of surfing. Each day campers will experience new tricks and steps that will ensure their confidence while in the water and surfing.

Surf, Surf, Surf! We are often so excited to meet our new campers each week and sometimes hard to even get the kids to stop surfing. We our mindful of our hydration and sun breaks, reapplication of sunscreen, and snack breaks. We do break for lunch and usually like to take a short walk to learn about coastal conservation and beach ecology.

Pick-up for Surf Camp is at 1:00pm. Parents are of course welcome to come early and watch us surf! Please follow proper pick-up procedures so our staff is aware of who is leaving our site.
