You must know how to swim, and be in reasonably good physical shape to attend a surf camp or surf lesson.
WE WILL NOT BE SUPPLYING WETSUITS
You must have your own wetsuit. See tips on renting or buying a wetsuit, and water temps at the bottom of this page. Later in the summer you may not need a wetsuit.
RESTRICTIONS FOR 8 & 9 YEAR OLDS
It is necessary to have a parent or guardian on the beach with them, to take care of their personal needs, as we do not supply that level of care. You also must be aware as a parent of an 8 or 9 year old, that they can be moody. If the waves too big, water too cold, or too much seaweed, they will want to stay on the beach and out of the water. They may even want to quit camp. Be aware if you do sign up your sweet son or daughter, that we are not offering refunds, no matter how cute your kid is. We do group the real young kids together, keep them in the shallows, and watch them as a group, but we are not going to be able to give to any one student constant attention at all times in the water. If they are going to need an instructor with them the entire time while in the water, then we would not be able to do that. We have a 3 to 1 ratio of students to instructors, and we normally do not have extra instructors to watch just one child, essentially a private lesson. Some kids have been boogie boarding for a while, and if your child has some experience, or seems strong in the water, it will be fine. But if it turns out that he needs constant attention, know we are not going to be able to do that, and unfortunately we will not be able to refund.

WHERE TO MEET US
Meet us at the south end of 5th street, which forms a dead end at the beach just north of the volleyball courts. Meet us here at our van on the first day for check in. On the following days, we will meet at our tent on the beach. MEET ABOUT 15 MINUTES EARLY ON THE FIRST DAY. THE REST OF THE DAYS, BE AT THE TENT ON THE BEACH BY 10AM. KIDS WILL BE LEAVING THE TENT ABOUT 10 TILL 1PM OR 1PM AT THE END OF THE DAILY CAMP. We generally do not accompany the kids from the tent to the street, but it is not far.
WHAT TO BRING
Snack for the break
Towel and t shirt
We are in the water most of the time. We have a break in the middle of the session for snack and surfing related instruction.
TIPS FOR GETTING A WETSUIT
If the water temp gets to 68 and above, there is no need for a wetsuit. It is happening earlier this year, as of June 10, it is already 66 degrees F, which is plenty warm. At 69 degrees and above, a wetsuit is not needed, though it does protect against sunburn and board rashes. If the water temp now only a spring suit is needed. The water can drop in temp suddenly and for a few days, but it is rare. Less expensive wetsuits for growing kids Big 5 Dicks Sports Play it Again Sports More expensive wetsuits Hansens Encinitas Surf Ride Solana Beach Mitch’s Surf Shop in Solana Beach and La Jolla Wetsuit Rentals Hansens in Encinitas has a lot and decent rate. You must go into the shop to have the wetsuit fitted properly. It should fit tight, but not too tight. If it is too lose, it will fill with water. With growing kids, we recommend going the cheaper route at Big 5 or Dicks Sports. Wetsuits come in different thickness. There is 3/2 (3mm/2mm) and 4/3 mm. You will only need the 3/2 for summer. You can get a full suit or a spring suit. (Spring suit – short sleeves and short legs – not good for colder water/days.) Feel free to call me if you have questions or issues about obtaining or fitting a wetsuit: 760-635-7873 If you are having problems securing a wetsuit, call me. Unfortunately with Covid, we don’t feel confident disinfecting wetsuits that fit against the skin.
