The surf school runs surf camps Monday to Friday in the school holidays, with a one or two hour surfing lesson each day, depending on the age of the child. Children will love to learn the basics of surfing, and we often meet families who are delighted by how much progress can be made in a week, even by very young children!

Ben’s Surf School has developed a teen surf camp that is very popular with young people, giving them the option to take their own surfboard or borrow one, and promising to improve your skills, whatever your ability level. Surf camp for teens involves a surf lesson every day for five days, which will give the rest of the family plenty of time to explore the beautiful surrounding area, too!
