WHEN?: PCSL Surf Camp is offered Monday- Thursday 10:00 am- 3:00 pm starting June 13th.
WHAT'S INCLUDED?: We provide all-day summer fun for kids age 7-16; we also provide wetsuits, surfboards, leashes, trained surfing instruction and certified lifeguards. Our camp is insured and we keep a 4:1 ratio, ensuring every camper gets the attention and guidance they deserve in a controlled and safe environment.
WHERE?: Our summer surf camp takes place in Bolinas, CA (1 hour North of San Francisco, just 10 minutes past Stinson Beach.) We meet every morning in the grassy park behind the tennis courts at 80 Brighton Ave.
WHAT TO EXPECT?: We will divide the camp into a maximum of 5 groups. Each group will have 1 head instructor, 1 counselor in training and a maximum of 5 campers: with two Lead instructors posted on the beach to help wherever needed our ratio is unbeatable! Each group will have different colored PCSL hats to take home at the end of the session and will compete in fun beach games that correlate to a different ocean/surf lesson during lunch for prizes. Throughout the day we attempt to have two full surf sessions of 1-1.5 hours long depending on safety, tides and ocean current patterns that effect daily activities.
OUR GOAL?: We aim for every child to walk away from our camp with new friends, amazing memories, confident ocean awareness, and improved surf skills and techniques.

Pop-Ups! Monday is all about pop-ups. How our bodies all work differently and how we get to our feet varies greatly. Our instructors take time to focus on each individual and figure out what works best for everyone.
Monday's game: Beach flags- racing to get from our belly to our feet as fast as possibly, incorporating pop-ups all day long!
Etiquette! Tuesday we will learn how to behave in the ocean alongside other surfers. This is such an important lesson that we take with us to every surf break around the world.
Tuesday's game: Cups- taking turns cheering each other on in this relay style game to fill a cup with ocean water, teaching us to take turns, pay attention and share the stoke with our fellow surfers.
Currents! Wednesday we will look at currents and tides. Not only learning about what to do if we get caught in a current, but also how to use them to our advantage as surfers.
Wednesday's game: No competition or races today! Wednesday's we sit back and let the current take us for a ride in a lagoon adventure. Learning to literally go with the flow and stay calm.
Buddy System! It may seem old school, but the buddy system is a huge safety topic in any surfers tool box. We never should surf alone. It's important to learn how to stay together and ask for help when needed.
Thursday's game: Three, four and five legged races. Nothing says buddy system more then being stuck together!
