- We also have a safety script that each session reviews.

SPI Sessions has a unique approach to our staff. We call ourselves ‘beach life Instructors’ because we believe we share more with the student than just a surfing lesson. We are well-rounded individuals with love for all things friendly to our beach and lifestyle. We maintain a rotating staff of 4-5 Beach life Instructors and 3-5 Science Specific Trainers.  In a lesson setting we maintain a 4:1 ratio of surfer to instructor staff to maintain the attention necessary for adequate surf technique and stoke. We are very proud to have a strong staff of vetted individuals eager to share the stoke of surfing and eco-awareness.

Open Water Safety is a high priority for us and we take it very seriously. Students will be instructed of our Camp procedures, safety precautions and in case of emergency drills.

Everyday one of our camp instructors will take your child through a fun beach ecology or marine science lesson. We feel strongly about out establishing a connection to our ocean and we hope to make a lasting impression on your child.
