Summer is here and the kids are out of school! If you have a young’un looking to be the next Kelly Slater, now is the time to send your budding grom to surf camp or surf school.
We know that there are thousands of surf camps to choose from so do some research and make sure you’ve picked the right camp that perfectly suits your kid. Location, wave quality, skill level, and other personal reasons should all factor into play when picking the right camp. Some are even all-inclusive, so make sure that’s something you want.
In order to help narrow down the field, here is a list of summer surf camps we’ve spotted (or heard) that could get your child hanging ten in no time:
