Surfing for Beginners

Enjoy the Journey

Surfing is one of the most fun things to do on Planet Earth. Equally true: surfing is not easy to learn and progress at. It takes quite a bit of dedication and time to get the hang of it and consistently catch waves. This isn’t meant to discourage you, rather, it’s helpful to set realistic expectations and know that you’re not the only one falling off your board a gazillion times. The learn-to-surf struggle is real.

But you can do it! If you keep at it with a positive attitude, you will improve your surfing and have a great time along the way. To help you become a better surfer and ocean-going human, here’s a collection of helpful info for beginner and intermediate surfers. We wish you lots of success and tons of fun on your surfing journey!

Surf Camps for Beginners

One of the best ways to set yourself up for surfing success (and progress faster as a beginner or intermediate) is to take a surf trip where you can surf every day to really build your skills and gain momentum.

Enter the surf camp. Surf camps (or retreats) are an awesome option for surfers at any level, but especially for beginner surfers because you’ll get to surf every day and have skilled surf instructors guiding you every step of the way.

Here are a few of our most popular surf camps and retreats that have excellent programs for beginner surfers.
