The Camp:


This camp has flourished as the premier surf school in the country for men and women of all ages.  Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced surfer, we have designed an action packed vacation for you, with daily surfing lessons, accommodations at local 3 star hotels, yoga sessions, private body massage, salsa dance classes, walks to nearby waterfalls, body pump aerobics, power hikes,  or a spectacular canopy tour where you can enjoy ocean views and exotic wildlife while you glide from one tree to another in the rainforest.  All of this plus two meals per day in the best area restaurants is waiting for you.  Surfing instructors are certified by ISA, (International Surfing Association), and also certified by the Surfing Assciation of Austrailia.

The surf lessons are 2 hours per session. They include surfboard rental, rash guard, and a snack of fruit and drinking water.  Learn to surf with qualified instructors who themselves are expert surfers and trained with life saving skills.  You will learn basic ocean knowledge -- how to read the waves, the tide, the swell and the wind. Learn the fundamentals such as paddling methods, how to "duck dive," and how to get to your feet. More advanced instruction is also provided for the more experienced surfer.
