Surf Development Clinics

SPI Sessions- Private Surf Development Clinics

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. Classes are limited to 15 students. Skill level assessments will be given at the beginning of each session to properly pair students with instructors and skill levels.

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.
