SUMMER SURF/BEACH CAMPS: AGES 3-17
Perfect Day Surf Camp is presented by Quiksilver and Roxy Surf Camps
. Our summer programs have the lowest student to instructor ratio on the beach. Our ultimate goal is to teach surf lessons
and boogie board lessons to all ages in our surf camp, beach camp and even our toddler beach camp
to help them become strong and safe waterman. The great thing for you is the surf camp and beach camps are located at the same spot making it an easy one stop drop for all your children.
ABOUT THE CAMPS:
Our preschoolers beach camp
(ages 3-7) below need more structure and a lower ratio of 1:1 surfing & boogie boarding instruction, while our older or more experienced kids (ages 7-17) have a 5:1 ratio in the surf camp
& surf lelessons
camp. The camps for the older more experienced child is less structured because these kids want to spend most of their time in the water surfing and boogie boarding. We also coordinate beach activites and games like volleyball, prisoner, soccer, capture the flag, dodge-ball and more but our goal is to encourage all campers to learn water skills and become strong waterman and lifelong surfers. Each camper will learn water safety, etiquette & technique. (see topics here)
We are sensitive to each childs desires and let them decide what they want to do while encouraging them to get instruction in the water.
Our Beach Camp for ages 3-7
will also learn to surf
and boogie board (if conditions allow), but they need 1:1 surfing and boogie boarding instruction and more structure will help them learn how to be confident in the ocean. Please note, any child that is not a good swimmer will only get surfing or boogie board instruction on days where the tide and swell are safe enough to prevent them from falling off the board. It will be very difficult to get them back into the ocean if dunked and defeat our purpose. We also want our future generation to learn responsibility through our fun ocean awareness, sea life and environmental awareness activities and games. (see schedule here
) This program has a lower student to instructor ratio (1:1 boogie & surf lessons, 4:1 water play & 7:1 beach activities). Our goal is to take baby steps into helping them become comfortable in the ocean so they can move over to our Surf Camp
. Even the daily splashing near the waters edge will only build their confidence. Then we would work on the next steps of how to manage waves and whitewash, where to take off in the wave, how to swim past the break (wave) and back in safely and eventually how to boogie board and surf! My goal this year is to have my 2 and 4 year old not run away from the whitewash as it rolls up on shore like it was going to bite them! And to provide the education I want them to have over summer break.
Wetsuits are provided but the sizes are limited. A size too small or too big will still work. All must be potty trained and comfortable enough to leave without the parent present. Separation anxiety children will not be ready for our camp.
Groups divided by age and gender if preferred and friends stick together. We encourage parents come on Fridays only to avoid performance anxiety. This will help your child progress in our goals of creating water babies. Also, it is difficult for the staff to know who is watching your child when they run off to be with you.

For your peace of mind, our camp managers & lead surf instructors are mature adults and a credentialed teacher for our preschool program. Some are lifeguards, a nurse & parents themselves who are Lifeguard, CPR, First Aid & AED Certified. The owner is a mother of a 2 year old and 4 year old who understands the needs of young children and will staff accordingly to meet those needs. They too will attend my program so I will be certain to keep it safe. The staff is professionally trained waterman to be aware of everything on the beach around them and in the water, so trust that all will be in good hands. We also include young surfers (most on local surf teams) that relate to our campers who can motivate and influence them. The surf is a sandy beach bottom break safe for beginners and we do not get in the water when unsafe which is rare for Summer. If you ever have concerns, please bring it to the managers attention any time and they will help comfort you. More about owner hereWHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT:
