Surf Camp: The Best Summer Playground


“The average American child spends about 4 to 7 minutes a day playing outside and over 7 hours a day in front of a screen”.

-Child Mind Institute


In our increasingly tech-obsessed world, our kids’ playgrounds have become screens.

Instead of using their muscles, getting their hands dirty and being rambunctious with friends, our kids are sitting on the couch disconnected and de-energized.

Here at Wavehuggers, we believe the beach is the finest type of playground for kids (and adults 😉).

Nature has provided the best antidote to our tech-y society and the all-inclusive fun it brings is life-giving and rejuvenating!

According to research done by UC Berkley, kids who spend more time outside are less stressed, learn more quickly, have healthier weights, and develop stronger friendships.

The ultimate playground

Our Huntington Beach and Encinitas Summer Surf Camps are a rad opportunity for kids to re-connect with nature, get off the screens and learn new skills!

Get ready for all the fun, all the saltwater silliness, all the new friends, and yes, ALL the surfing.

Summer Surf Camp is not only awesome way for your kids to learn to surf, but they will also learn water safety and ocean conservation! We offer full, half-day and drop-in options to work with your busy schedule.



With an instructor-to-student ratio that is never higher than 1:3, your kids become our friends, not just another name for roll call.

Our staff is fun-loving, highly trained and fantastic with children – we’re counting down the days until we’ll be romping in the waves with them and cheering for their progress. We truly can’t wait! 

Camp festivities include:

  • Ocean Safety
  • Surf Technique
  • Beach Games
  • Ocean Conservation
  • Camp-Wide Surf Contests
  • First-Aid/CPR Certified Instructors
  • Video Coaching Analysis (Encinitas Only)
  • ‘Pizza Party Fridays’ (Huntington Only)

This summer, give your child the gift of nature’s amazing playground.

Your children will come home from camp each evening elated after a whole day playing with their friends in the sunshine and experiencing the stoke of surfing confidently.
