Frequently asked questions
A towel, sunglasses, beach attire and sunscreen. If you bring water, we can refill it or provide you with some. We have changing rooms and a place to rinse off as well. Surfboards, wax, rash guards and fun will be provided.
How old does my child need to be ?
We always tell the parents ” if your child is comfortable in the water and can pay reasonable attention to the basic instruction, you will get your moneys worth.” We have had success with children as young as 4 years old.
Do I have to be at camp or the surf lesson?
We always encourage parents to participate. It is a great time to share, however it is not required unless you have a very young surfer. Then we ask that you be present the first day or hour to insure everyone is comfortable. It is always a good idea to bring a camera too!
Your lesson will most likely take place near the Jacksonville Beach Pier. We are blessed with a clean, sandy, east facing beach that is perfect for beginner, intermediate and also advanced surfing. The ocean temperature in the spring & summer fluctuates from the low 70’s to the low 80’s. The average Jacksonville Beach days are sunny and ranging in the mid 80’s. If conditions prove to be unsafe, we will have to reschedule.
Are you insured?
Yes. We have an extensive insurance policy that covers all of our lessons, parties, camps, contests and rentals.
Why are others so expensive?
Other service providers are seasonal and opportunistic. Some use a costly referral service’s or need to hire seasonal help. We are locally owned and operated. Our instructors work year around and have been fine tuning their curriculum for years.
Most of our programs are run at 6th Avenue North, in Jacksonville Beach. We do travel to you, especially for small groups or parties.
What do you do in stormy weather?
We will get out of the water in the event of inclement weather, if required we will move up to the parking lot and get into vehicles and call the designated number for the surfer. We never leave a young surfer alone on the beach or after camp or lesson without supervision.
