Best Summer Surf Camp in Los Angeles


Dear parents,

We understand that entrusting your children and teens to our camp comes with its share of concerns.  You worry about their safety, whether they’re applying sunscreen, eating their lunch, keeping warm, and of course, enjoying themselves.  Rest assured, we share these concerns too.

Mastering the art of surfing can indeed be challenging, but safety should never be compromised.  At Aqua Surf, we’ve learned from experience that the most effective way to provide a safe, enjoyable, and enriching experience for our students is through our bespoke instruction approach.

Introducing our Premier Ratio Initiative, a dynamic student-to-teacher ratio strategy ensuring personalized, attentive instruction.  This tailored approach maximizes safety both in and out of the water, while also promoting optimal learning and enjoyment for all our students.

Best Surfing Student to Surf Instructor Ratios

At Aqua Surf School, we pride ourselves on our tailored student-to-instructor ratios.  With our Premier Ratio Initiative, we flexibly adjust these ratios based on factors like surf conditions, safety considerations, and the participants’ experience and maturity.  In challenging surf conditions, we often provide an even more personalized learning experience, sometimes going down to a 1:1 ratio.  Moreover, we typically prioritize our younger surfers with dedicated one-on-one sessions, underlining our dedication to safety and bespoke instruction.

Campers thrive when they receive personalized attention and mentoring from our expertly trained team.  They assimilate the information and techniques better, faster and more safely, which translates into a higher level of confidence and performance.  Students also improve communication skills, increase participation and feel they matter.

Although our staff guides individual students, they also are vigilant to maintain a group mentality.  Students learn to encourage and support one another, which develops friendships and trust.  We’ve seen the best possible results gained by our focused coaching ratio.  The results speak for themselves.  Aloha.
