South Florida’s Premiere Surf Camps! Learn From The Pros!

Each morning your child will be met by our program’s skilled instructors on the oceanfront at North Ocean Park, Pompano Beach. This is an excellent site with user-friendly waves, a sandy bottom, and a safe environment for teaching your child how to enjoy and appreciate the ocean.

Instruction will focus around Ocean Awareness and Surfing Fundamentals. In addition, students will learn firsthand about such topics as waves and tides, marine biology, coastal ecology, and beach profiles. Students may also participate in skimboarding, snorkeling, beach games, and towed tubing (Wave runners driven by instructors only).

Remember, the best surfer is the one having the most fun!

Each morning will begin with light stretching and exercises for young surfers. A professional surfer will be on hand to discuss his experiences surfing around the globe and competing in international surf events. 

Throughout each day, campers will participate in a variety of activities based on the ocean conditions. Campers will be continuously hydrated throughout the day and sunscreen will be reapplied every hour. During downtime, campers will be taught valuable lessons in Ocean Safety and Ocean Awareness which they will use for the rest of their lives. 

Each week will culminate with a surf contest, complimentary pizza party, and giveaways from Scales and area surf shops.

Campers need to pack a lunch each day, except Friday.

No surfing experience necessary/must be able to swim.
