How to be selected for all-stars?
How will I know if I have been selected?
If you have been selected for all-stars and are looking for a more next step programming, consider joining the Kids Surf Club on weekends to surf all summer long and progress your skills.
Surf Camp is designed for and attended overwhelmingly by kids who want to be in the ocean. However, after years of running surf camp, it is prudent to address that surf camp is not an appropriate program to help kids get over their fear of the ocean or the water. All campers are expected to participate in the ocean.
If your child is fearful of water activities, we recommend private lessons to help them overcome this fear. This should not be your child’s first time in the ocean!
Summertime Surf will not refund or apply surf camp credit for campers who are unwilling to participate in ocean activities.
All Campers Must:
Rapid skills improvement under a dedicated coaching staff. Summer teams practice on weekday mornings, while Fall-Winter Spring practices are scheduled after school & on weekends.
The “Fall-Winter-Spring Season” starts October 9th. Register for practice alerts now!
