Looking for a fun, unique activity for your kids this spring or summer break?

Try our surf camp in Santa Monica or Venice Beach!


SURF CAMP is available at our Venice Beach/Santa Monica location every year during Spring Break (March-April) and Summer Break (June-September). It’s open to all kids between the ages of 5 to 17 to take part in a fun, engaging half-day or full-day experience!


Operating since 2002 in Venice Beach and Santa Monica, our Surf School is perfect for beginners, as these areas have conditions that create the gentlest, easiest waves in the region. Students can sign up for as many or as few half-day or full-day sessions as they like. Week-long packages are also available.


Surf Camp is a perfect way for kids to stay active and make new friends during school breaks. Classes are led by highly qualified and experienced instructors who make student safety a top priority. All instructors have CPR and first aid training, and we provide all the surfing gear and safety equipment students will need.


Flexible schedules and reasonable rates make surfing in

Santa Monica and Venice Beach accessible to everyone.


We tailor all Surf Camp classes to the needs and skill levels of students in the group, teaching concepts like dealing with rip currents, popping up on a surfboard, board handling, turning, wave reading, proper positioning and maneuvering, and surfing etiquette.


Students can also participate in many other aquatic activities, including:

  • Paddling
  • Boogie-boarding
  • Swimming
  • Body-surfing
  • Sand sculpting
  • Running
  • Beach sports (touch football, soccer, volleyball and dodge ball)


We also provide drinks and snacks, as well as pop-up canopies to provide shade and prevent overexposure to the sun. Regular break times are scheduled, and while we strongly encourage our students to engage in surfing as much as possible, children are never forced to take part in any activity if they prefer to sit out.
