Kids Surf Camp

Our surf camp offers your child an unforgettable experience in which your child becomes familiar with the sea, gets to know the children in the group and gets to know themselves. The children go through an experience of empowerment and development while having a lot of fun and feeling of freedom.

The camp starts at 8:30 am and finishing at 1:00 pm

In our surfing camps, the number of places is limited in order to ensure the quality of instruction, safety and the personal treatment we give to each child. During the five days of the camp, the kids go through a structured professional, social and educational process.

Our skilled instructors are responsible for a group of kids and its goal is to form them as a group, teach them about the sport of surfing and the sea and give them maximum confidence during their entire stay at the camp.

It is important to know that South Pacific Surf School follows all safety rules and regulations. Our instructors are certified and experienced with extensive knowledge in the field of teaching people to surf.

There is one instructor for every 5-7 children (depending on ability and age) so that the children are under constant supervision in the water and on the beach. In addition, the Surf School works with new and advanced equipment that is integral to keeping children safe. 

The Surf Camps are held at Mount Main Beach, a beach which provides optimal conditions for a  safe and secure learning environment. 

Smart in the Sun 

During the surf camp, the children have frequent refreshment breaks in the shade, where they eat, drink water and apply more sunscreen.

The instructors are aware of the importance of drinking enough water during strenuous athletic activity that accompanies the prolonged exposure to the sun. All the children must wear a hat if they are not in the shade or surfing at all times.

On the flip side, if it’s too cold or windy we never push the kids to surf if conditions are unpleasant. We have plenty of hands on deck to ensure if a kid is cold or unwell an instructor can aid them immediately.

Personal Attention 

The students are divided into groups of up to 14, where each group has two instructors. This ratio allows  instructors to give students individual attention and to accompany them closely throughout the camp.

The small groups allow students to become familiar with each other and go through an experience that gives them improved  self-confidence, life skills, physical fitness and a broad understanding of different situations of the ocean.

We also break up into groups of age and ability to ensure no one feels out of place. 

Satisfaction Guaranteed 

Our surf camps take your child outside of the formal framework and safely lets them experience a unique feeling of being outdoors, to cope with themselves and with the ocean and reach new heights.

Our surf camps take place at Main Beach in Mount Maunganui, Monday to Friday, from 8:30am – 1pm. The surf camps are for children ages 7 – 15.

All that is required is a basic knowledge of swimming and a will to learn and enjoy.
