LEARN TO SURF LA SURF CAMPS

Our Manhattan and Santa Monica/Venice Surf Camps are a great way for kids to spend the day playing and relaxing while learning how to handle themselves competently in the surf. We are professional instructors who pride ourselves on teaching a top notch technique that will have your child going down the line by the end of the week! Safety is our top priority: we provide top quality foam surfboards, bodyboards and full length wetsuits. We also provide snacks, drinking water and sunblock and have pop-up canopies to provide shade and protect students from over-exposure to the sun. Surf Camp LA is for kids ages 5 to 12 and teens aged 13 to 17. Surf camp is held every year during Spring and Summer Breaks. See below for session dates.

ABOUT OUR SURF CAMPS

 

Learn to Surf LA’s Santa Monica and Los Angeles Surf Camps both have excellent locations in the Los Angeles area. Conveniently located at the end of the 10 and the 105 freeways, it’s an easy drive to our surf camp from greater Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Venice as well as for those coming from the South Bay, Manhattan, Hermosa, Redondo, Malibu, Pacific Palisades and other LA areas. Both breaks have gently sloping sandy bottom, such that the waves here break much more mildly compared to most other breaks. We are fortunate enough to have two great locations with a wide range of latitude for acceptable wave conditions -These are some of the easiest waves to learn to surf on that you’ll ever find!

 

Our qualified, experienced instructors are CPR and First Aid certified–your child’s safety is our primary concern, and our maximum in water instructor to student ratio of 5 to 1 ensures that every child get’s enough individual attention (some schools have a ratio of up to 10 to one!!).

 

Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles, Malibu and Santa Monica Surf Camp students will learn about wave dynamics, ocean safety and awareness, how to deal with rip-currents, popping up on a surf board, handling the board in the water, turning, wave selection, positioning and maneuvering, surfing etiquette, and much, much more.

 

Other beach activities we offer are: paddling, boogie-boarding, swimming, body-surfing, , running, sand sculpture, and beach games such as Frisbee, Nerf touch-football, beach volleyball, dodge-ball and beach soccer. We also have break times to dry off, rehydrate and relax or play. No child is forced to participate in any activity.
