Book An Ocean Beach Summer Surf Camp
Summer is the perfect time for anyone to start their surfing journey and participating in a surfing summer camp is a fun way to learn and strengthen the basic skills of surfing. During a surf camp with San Diego Surf School in Ocean Beach you will discover the excitement and adventure of the ocean. Because we are based in San Diego, surfing conditions are mostly ideal throughout the entire year allowing us to offer surf camps year round. Our Summer Surf Camp is very popular and runs from the beginning of June to the end of August. The summer sessions are usually in high demand because the students love the experience and are free to attend during the week. During the camp, surfers will learn the basics including things like surf etiquette, wave selection, and ocean and safety awareness; and each of the camp days will have a different aspect of surfing to focus on. All of our camp participants will get personalized instruction with a 3:1 surfer to instructor ratio; the small class size ensures that everyone remains safe and gets quality time in the water. At the end of the Ocean Beach Summer Surf Camp you’ll see amazing results and will be able to cheer your surfer on as they start to ride the waves of San Diego all on their own.
Summer Surf Camp in Ocean Beach
The Ocean Beach Summer Surf Camp is for surfers aged 5-17 (for adults, try one of our surfing retreats) and runs weekly during the summer season. You will choose the number of days that your surfer will participate and whether they attend a full-day or half-day session on those days. We have two half-day options – the morning session from 9am to 12pm and the afternoon session from 12:30pm to 3:30pm. Full-day sessions run from 9am to 3:30pm. We offer 5-day, 3-day, 2-day, and even 1-day camp options so your surfer is guaranteed at least 3 hours of surfing instruction. Surfers will spend their camp time with a professional and CPR certified surf instructor who will use their surfing knowledge and style to create fun, personalized, and informative sessions. No matter what the skill level is of your surfer, the instructor that we match them with will ensure that they master the fundamentals of surfing during their time at our summer surf camp.
Whether your surfer participates in 5 days or 1, they will still experience every aspect of our Summer Surf Camp. They will learn and master the fundamentals of surfing from their instructors and get access to a surfboard, wetsuit, snacks, pictures taken during the camp, and a t-shirt to commemorate the fun they had during their time with us. Every surfer gets ample time in the water, personalized instruction, guaranteed safety, and days full of fun that they will never forget.

Ocean Beach Summer Surf Camp Details
The camp itinerary is mostly the same for all surfers with minor changes depending on the number of days you sign up for. Each day starts with safety talks and stretching to prepare surfers for getting into the water, followed by an area of focus for that day. After the specific skills for the day have been taught the remainder of the session will go to practicing and strengthening those skills. A general layout of the areas covered for each day will be: Monday – introductions and water safety, Tuesday – ocean knowledge and understanding how to catch and read waves, Wednesday – free surfing days with demos performed by surf instructors, Thursday – practicing and learning more advanced techniques, and Friday is when the surfers put it all together and start to catch waves independently. Camp will end with a pizza party on Friday to celebrate all that the surfers accomplished during the week. The goal is for your surfer to leave the camp with a new found confidence that they can express not only on a surfboard and in the water, but also throughout the rest of their lives.
