If you want to experiment the real Californian lifestyle and get those SoCal vibes, you definitely have to spend a couple of days (or weeks, if you have this chance!) at the CaliCamp. As we all know, California is surfers' paradise; I’ve traveled quite a lot, and when it comes to consistent surf, Southern California is definitely one of the... More

Comming to calicamp was a glorious decision. I spent about 1.5 weeks in Dana Point in January, it happend that I was the only camp guest but this doesn't matter. Dave and Regan made up for the missing guests with their very welcoming nature. After a long break in surfing I had to restart from the basics, but that was... More

If you are looking for a chilled surf experience, thats the camp to go to. I've never done that before and never imagined myself on a board, but was eager to try. Thanks to Regan and Dave I felt comfortable and safe in the water and finally stood on the board a couple of times. It's also a perfect vacation... More

Me and my two friends have been traveling for two months here in the US, and this was definitely the best week! We actually extended it because we thought we had to less time there. Awesome leaders, nice environment, really good food and you're making new friends! Couldn't be better. I'll be back 👌🏽

That trip was awesome! It felt like you have the chance to get a sense of what surfing really is about, hanging out with friends, expose yourself to nature and have a little fun fighting your own brain: "You can ride that wave!" If you are into the mentality of sports like skating or bmxriding and havent tried surfing yet,... More

I had a very good experience with the CaliCamp. Before getting to the camp, I didn't really worry about the way things would happen, but I just didn't know how cool my trip would be. First, I can assure you that the welcome is warm: yes, someone actually comes to pick you up at the airport and make sure you'll... More

It was amazing to be out in the water for a week! The surf instructors are super motivating and Dave is crazy and fun ;) We got the chance to surf as much as we wanted with all the guidance we needed. If you wanna learn to surf, this is the place to be!!
