"Aqua Surf is an amazing camp! My daughter met great friends, learned to surf, and overall had an incredible time! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to surf and meet great people." -Karen

Santa Monica Summer Camps

"My son Francis, age 15, had the best surf camp ever. We had a good experience at AQUA SURF prior years, but he really had a blast this year at the AQUA SURF camp . In fact, he fell in love with the sport for real, thanks to this camp. I was going to buy him some private lessons, but I was really happy I followed Allen’s recommendation to enroll him in the surf camp. The instructors were great, and they communicated the passion for surfing to my son. He made tremendous progress, and now he wants some more. I would recommend AQUA SURF surf camp in a heartbeat." -Awa

Hang Loose at AQUA SURF

Campers thrive when they receive personalized attention and mentoring from our expertly trained team. They assimilate the information and techniques better, faster and more safely, which translates into a higher level of confidence and performance. 

Students improve communication skills, increase participation and feel they matter. Although our staff guides individual students, they also are vigilant to maintain a group mentality. Students learn to encourage and support one another, which develops friendships and trust. We’ve seen the best possible results gained by our focused coaching ratio. The results speak for themselves.
