Family & Kid’s Fun / Bodyboard Clinics

NEW Parents and Kids Surf Camps this summer!

Want to learn to surf with your kids in fun filled day surf camp experiences? Well after numerous summers of parents seeing how much fun their kids are having in our kid’s group surf lessons, we took them up on their request for combined parent and kid camps.

We are offering two mid week surf camp experiences for parents and their kids, ages 6 to 12 years old, in July and August. We chose midweek to avoid the busyness both in the waves with excessive weekend surfer traffic and to avoid the difficulty of finding parking on weekends at the state park. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays of each month’s camp event, you can book one, two or all three days of camps. Students must attend the first day of camp, and then can opt in for additional second and third days of camps, in order to keep the learning flow cohesive. You will have the option of one, two or three days of camps at Active.com online registration when you book your space. 

What’s included in the three days of camps:

  • Fun and informative Cape Falcon Marine Reserve short presentation. Learn about the cool ocean species that reside in the ocean here.
  • Learn how to survey the beach for the 6 forecast conditions we call “A Recipe for a Perfect Wave”.
  •  Learn how to read the local tide table to pick the best tidal surf window for you to learn in.
  • Learn the 12 essential surfing skills and techniques to succeed at surfing.
  • Experience hours on the beach and in water exceptional surf instruction and coaching from our all women team of coaches. Including paddling techniques, reading the waves, dropping in and surf etiquette.
  •  First day of camp runs from 9 am to 3 pm. Second and third day of camps run from 11 am to 3 pm.  
  • Camp photos taken of the day’s campers will be shared on NWWSC’s Facebook album.  
  • Kid’s Froth softop surfboard with flex fins.
  • Gath surf helmets for everyone. Part of our concussion prevention program.
  • Wetsuit, wetsuit parts and Softop longboards for parents and kids from Cleanline Surf Shop. Your family will rent on the first morning and return rented gear to the shop location on the last day of camp by 6 pm.
  • Yummy Kind nutrition bars and fresh fruit for snacks. Bring your own picnic lunches for your family. Lunch is not included.   
  • Board and wetsuit recommendations given on the third day of camp, to assist your family in purchasing the right gear for your surfing success. Cleanline Surf Shop offers our students special discounts on your first time purchase of surfboards, wetsuits and parts. Coupon sheet given at camp.

After immersing your family for three days of surf camps, you will feel confident in pursuing your family’s desire to surf together.

Water coaching will be broken into adult group and kids group with coaches. Space for 12 students in this new surfing camp experience.
