Q: What should we wear?  A: Wear secure bathing suit or board shorts and RashGuard/Lycra Shirt to help protect you from excess sun and skin irritation.

Q: What should I bring? Only the basics like a towel. Sunscreen should be applied BEFORE you leave your house so it will dry.

Q: Is sunscreen necessary? A: We promote using sunscreen for your skin's protection. A wicked sunburn will kill your fun.

Q: What should we eat beforehand? A: You want to eat a healthy, non greasy, light meal before you get ready. This will allow enough time for it to settle. Sometimes the excitement of hitting the surf can make that tummy do a few flips. Stick with a good cereal, toast or pancakes.

Q: Should I pack any snacks? A: We provide watermelon with on our breaks every day. You are welcome to pack something light like crackers, but it shouldn't be necessary. ALL campers MUST bring their OWN FILLED WATER BOTTLES inside their beach bag daily! We will provide fresh watermelon at break!

Q: Should my parents stay or can they leave? A: Parents are welcome to stay and enjoy the other parents, but this camp requires listening and trust. We trust you will listen and you can trust we will keep you safe. In other words, you will have more success if you focus on your own surroundings and coaches. And as with other camps, your families will be thrilled to hear about your fun and get to watch your achievements grow before their very eyes.

Q: How soon can I start? A: Right away! We do private lessons, brush up sessions and group parties for all there's no reason to delay!
