So what does it mean to go to a Billabong Surf Camp? Just what you’d expect from the leader in Surfing – free Billabong giveaways and of course, the best surf camp around!
Participants will be broken up into small groups based on their level of experience. The basics will be taught (or quickly reviewed for more advanced students) – we will begin with land lessons that will focus on you learning about the waves and different types of breaks, surfer etiquette and water safety, and the different types of boards and fins. Lastly, before we head out into the water, we will coach you on the proper positioning, balance and pop up techniques on land and then into the surf we go!
As the camp progresses, we will get into more intermediate skills, catching waves and controlling your board while learning how to turn and maintain balance on the board. We will also teach you how to further your balance on board while standing on the face as well as how to efficiently and effectively paddle out through the breaking waves. You will learn the differences between riding in the white water and the face. You will also be taught to maneuver the board, turn, and begin to walk up and down the board.
Our instructors are all CPR, First-Aid, & lifeguard certified and ready to teach you the basics of surfing. Each participant will learn about ocean awareness, wave breaks, ocean conditions, safety in and out of the water, wave etiquette, paddling, push up and pop up techniques as well as and balancing.
