Banzai’s claim-to-fame summer surf camp! Largely for kids (median age is around 14), but open to all ages 6 and over (We often get “kids” in their 20’s). Surf Camp runs Monday thru Friday every week of summer, from 8:30am to 12:30pm (July 4th is usually a shortened pro-rated week). We offer good full wetsuits, a variety of surfboards, and more actual surf-time than many other camps in the area. (Some surf camps overbook and kids ‘share’ equipment) Staffing is one instructor per 2-5 students, depending on age, abilities, and conditions.
We have the best beginner location & instructor/student ratio of any surf camp. We often get whole families spending the week with us! (And if you skip a day it’s still cheaper than our group rate).
Pick Up/Drop Off
Our location for drop-offs and pick-ups will be in the red-curb turnaround area at the Brookhurst Street entrance. Our staff will be there to meet you, and this is also a good time to provide us with any information and ask questions. You are free to enter the park, but you may be asked to pay the $15 entrance fee. Summer Camp parents/guardians will receive a parking pass on opening Monday when you check-in with us – This pass is good for that week only. Additionally, the Brookhurst Street entrance is sometimes closed, so you’ll have to enter north at Magnolia Street and drive south through the parking lot.
What to Bring
Sunscreen (hat and sunglasses too?)
Warm dry clothing
Snacks and drink
Shoes/sandals (the sand gets hot!)
Boys: Tight fitting shorts/speedo to wear under your wetsuit.
