SURF CAMP DATES
June 24 – August 16
Kids & Teens Surf Camp
Softboard and Wetsuit Included
Beginner Surf Camps
We have two surf sessions with a break.
Students will learn how to catch and ride both inside white water waves, and outside unbroken waves, and do it safely. Students have the choice to surf on the inside or outside, whatever their comfort level. We supply an easy-to-ride softboard and wetsuit, and take you into the easiest waves for you to surf. Plenty of instructors so you get plenty of help.
No beach games.
We surf a lot at our camp to improve your surfing.
Surf if you have never surfed before.
Students will learn:
* Catching and riding whitewater waves
* Catching and riding outside unbroken waves
* Surf Etiquette
* Surf safety, how to prevent getting hurt
* What kind of surfboard to ride
* What kind of wetsuit
* Techniques for paddling out through the surf
* Wave judgement
* Swell Direction and Tides
Our goal is that you are able to surf on your own. You don’t need lessons until you are surfing like Kelly Slater, you only need lessons until you are able to catch and ride the easiest of waves straight in, Waikiki in the 1950s style. Then you are on your way to improving your skills, and its all fun along the way.
You will be surfing on the first time out, and getting “surfed out” every day. Plenty of top notch instructors, great equipment, and fast results. Specializing in beginners, even if you have never surfed before, don’t worry! We will have you surfing in no time.
No deposit – Easy cancellation policy
Quick Results – Surf Right Away
We understand that many of you are only in San Diego for a short time, and have to get some surf while you are here! This is our specialty, getting you up and riding in easy waves on easy boards right away, even if you have never surfed before.
High Quality Softboards & Wetsuits Included
We have a large selection of various surfboard shapes, so that we can custom fit just the right softboard for you. You will get the board that will be the easiest for you to ride. We also have thick 4/3 wetsuits, which are surprisingly warm in winter. A softboard and wetsuit are included with your lesson.
We are proactive on safety, and won’t let you get into trouble. We use only softboards, and all our energetic, experienced and professional instructors are EMT, Lifeguard, or CPR certified.
CUSTOMER REVIEW FROM YELP: Absolutely the best surf camp on moonlight beach, my son did four days and had a ball, lots of instructors, lots of help it’s all about surf, they get them up on the board so fast. There were other schools on the beach and Leucadia Surf School stood out so much as by far the best camp. Would recommend it to all my friends. Was totally impressed from start to finish.
CUSTOMER REVIEW FROM YELP: My husband and I signed our Grandson up for one lesson last week. He was in town for six days and we really wanted him to spend time in the water. We opted for one day of surf lessons not knowing if he would like it. Gerry had him standing on his board by the end of the first lesson. We ended up cancelling everything else we had planned and just let him go to Gerry’s surf school and catch waves. He had so much fun! The instructors were wonderful and very encouraging and we did not have to worry about wetsuits or boards. We did stay to watch the class and always felt that our child was safe. We love the way the school is run and how the lessons are set up. The students participate from the very beginning and they sure respect each other in the water. I would recommend this school for anyone. Thank you all so much for providing such a wonderful experience for a young boy. Oh, and the waves were all “10 footers” when he talked to his parents.
In the surf camps, we get you standing up in the whitewater, then take you to the unbroken waves on the outside, when the conditions are easy. You always have a choice to be inside in the whitewater, or “outside” on the unbroken waves, whatever your comfort level, with plenty of instructors everywhere.
If you are “intermediate”, good in the whitewater, standing up every time, we can help you to surf the “outside” unbroken waves, conditions permitting.
We go north on Moonlight Beach, the main beach in Encinitas, to the last uncrowded beach in Southern California. There are restrooms, a snack bar, and a lifeguard tower at Moonlight Beach.
Parents and other friends and family members are always welcome on the beach at surf camp.
2-1 to 4-1 student to instructor ratio.
Plenty of instructors with you at all times.
Pizza Party on Friday!
