I bought my out of town nephew (21 years old) surf lessons at Eli Howard. The experience was the highlight of his trip. After 15 minutes of beach instruction with Taylor, my nephew got in the water and after 15 minutes he was catching waves and having the time of his life. The ocean conditions weren’t great but it didn’t matter for a beginner. The school gave him a 5 m wetsuit so he wasn’t cold and gave him clear instructions about body mechanics and understanding waves. It was easy to park close by the campground (where the lesson took place). Showers were available after the lesson.

We go every year and Emily and her crew are simply the best. They WILL get you looking like you have been riding waves like a native for much longer than a few surf lessons. Plus, you can get street cred with a photo to prove it!

We absolutely loved this camp. Our 6 year old daughter started the week very unsure about surfing. I watched her confidence grow each day. By the end of camp, she was having a blast and riding wave after wave. We will be back next summer!

These guys know their stuff. If you want to give your kids a fun camp to learn the basics of surfing and have a blast at the same time, this is your place.

A family owned enterprise, Greg and Emily live and breathe this surf school. It is like sending your kids to a relative's to learn how to surf.

They have games to play or hammocks to lounge and grill up fresh barbecued food for the kids. Ask your kids about the crumb cake or fresh brownies after the camp. Yours will never be as good.

Definitely a favorite summer week for our kids. Now teenagers and they still want to go back!
