Offering flexible scheduling.  Hi!  I am a mom, the owner, Robbie Yrigoyen, and I have found a way to turn my passion into work starting in 2001.  More about me here. I have a 5 & 7 year old so I know how busy you are!  That is why I offer flexible scheduling so you can plug in days of camp that work around your schedule.  When you register, you simply select the “days” or “weeks” (does not have to be consecutive) in the spring and summer months and you can conveniently log into your account and move the days before 24 hours if something comes up.  Days can not be removed once paid but you can move them around.

Perfect Day Surf Camp is a professional mom and pop shop ran and operated by me, my family and friends.  More about me here.  The more moms & dads working at the beach the better!  We have been fortunate to have Quiksilver as our sponsors to advise us on professional training, provide us with cool items for campers and discounts for our staff.

Our camp for ages 4-7 is a beach camp where one on one surfing is offered even for our non swimmers (see how we do it here).  Our more experienced water babies will be able to surf and boogie board more with our 4:1 ratio in the water while our less experienced campers will engage in more beach games in and out of the water learning  how to be safe and mindful at all times.  We will have daily topics on waves, tides, currents, pollution and more prepping them for our Surf Camps and Junior Guards.  Parents are welcome to express their desire to have their child surf more when necessary but know the fear at this age will set them back.  Our instructors are excellent at encouraging all to surf but they will not force it.  See below for testimonials.

ITINERARY: 2017 BEACH CAMP ITINERARY & Beach Camp Daily Topics.

It is America so do what you like, but we encourage parents to not stick around to avoid performance anxiety. This will help your child progress in our goals of creating waterman. Also, it is difficult for the staff to know who is watching your child when they run off to be with you. We suggest holding off if your child still has separation anxiety.  Must be potty trained.

WHAT TO BRING: (directions & what to bring emailed to you after registering)
lunch, snacks, bottle water (refills available), towel, sweatshirt, hat, sunscreen, warm change of clothes, wetsuit & boogie board if you have one (we provide both).  Money is optional for restaurants, the pier stores, farmers market runs & camp hat (depending on location). Wetsuits are provided but the sizes are limited. A size too small or too big will still work. Please be sure to return or a fee will apply.
