How do I prevent sunburns?

Pack a HAT for them, full brimmed preferred.  Apply surf/ocean specific sunscreen to the face before arriving. It is very important to have a sunscreen that can withstand ocean waves, choosing a sunscreen with Zink Oxide is recommended. Spray-on sunscreens often wash off while surfing. Sunscreen is part of being a surfer and is reapplied throughout the day at surf camp.  You may also purchase sunscreen from AQUA SURF (upon arrival).

Are AQUASURF staff vaccinated for COVID-19?

Yes, all Aqua Surf camp staff are vaccinated.

What is the policy on face masks?

Face masks are optional for staff and campers during time on the sand, face masks are not worn in the water.

May parents/guardians hang out on the beach at camp?

In our experience, most kids/teens learn and respond more effectively to us when they are allowed solo time to learn surfing, and experience our camp as an individual (especially on Mondays & Tuesdays). Parents/Guardians may visit the beach at any time but we recommend coming on Fridays between 10:30am and 11:30am for our weekly surf contest. We also recommend that parents/guardians allow their kids/teens time to acclimate into our camp environment.

What is the most efficient way to drop-off, pick-up, or park?

When dropping-off/picking-up campers, you can park at the South end of the Torrance Beach lot (at the top of the big ramp.) The lot requires payment for parking but parents should be allowed entrance to the lot without paying if they tell the attendant that they are simply dropping off/picking up children and not parking.

Other:  Please refer to our POLICY for cancellations, reschedules, and refunds.

We encourage AQUA SURF students to stay connected with us via social media.  Look out for our discounted winter lessons, spring break camps, birthday beach surf parties, and surfing trips.  AQUA SURF teaches every day — all year round.
