Five full mornings of surf instruction
The Eli Howard Surf Camp is for boys and girls ages six and up who are ready to gain ocean confidence and enjoy the coolest beach adventure while really learning to surf! The camp is all-inclusive, providing five days of non-stop surfing and ocean awareness. Your child will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of brand new soft surfboards and full length wetsuits.
Enrolling your child in the camp will give them a safe non-competitive learning environment. All instructors are trained in CPR and First Aid to ensure safety. In addition, all head instructors are American Red Cross certified Lifeguards and EMTs! As always, we offer are our famous teaching ratios of 3:1, which put us on the map many years ago! With ratios this small, each student can work with an instructors at their ability, with beginners and younger surfers starting in the areas of water where they can stand up. Then as they progress, and once they're ready, they can move further out with the next instructor.
The camp covers a multitude of topics, everything from how to carry your surfboard down to the beach, tie a leash, build ocean confidence with bodysurfing sessions, to more advanced topics like surf etiquette and progressive surfing.
At the end of the week, your child will be able to catch waves on their own, having progressed each day, learning ocean safety and awareness. Our instructors instill self-confidence and have the patience to work with each child on a individual basis to meet their goals.
As with all Eli Howard lessons/camps the surfboard and wetsuit are provided so all students will need to bring is a swimsuit, towel, and sunblock. Daily refreshments are also provided mid session such as gatorade, hot chocolate if appropriate, trail mix, and fresh fruit. After a great week of surfing students may relax at the beach for a barbeque of burgers, hotdogs, and all the fixins.
Morning Surf Camps are held on City of Encinitas beaches, at Moonlight Beach as well as San Elijo State Beach. Afternoon Surf Camps are held at San Elijo State Beach.
