Summer is a great time to enroll your child in all sorts of camps to keep them active, social, and learning throughout the warm summer months. So give them something to talk about when they get back to school in the Fall.
Everyone should learn how to surf at least once, and why not start at a young age? Surfing will not only teach your child patience, but they'lllearn a fun and unique skill not everyone has.
Below are 5 reasons to try surf camps in San Diego:
1. Learn to Surf
This one should be obvious. When you live near the ocean, laying out on the beach all day can get a bit tiring. Signing up for a surf camp will get you in the water and teach you how to surf. Plus, it's something to check off a bucket list early on.
Don't expect to learn in just a few days, though; learning to surf is a hard skill to pick up and can take weeks or months to get the hang of it. Luckily, you can choose between a 1-day, 3-day, and 5-day surf camp to give you the basics.
2. Active Workout
Is surfing a hobby? A sport? Both? We won't narrow down what it is, but we will tell you that it's quite a workout on your body.
Your child will keep active and get a full workout without even realizing they're doing it. Between the amount of swimming they'll do, the paddling on the board, and the popups on the board, they'll come back fit, active, and ready for Fall sports.
3. California Waves
There are tons of surf camps to choose from, but California has some of the best surfing beaches on the west coast. San Diego Surf School is the leading surf school in Southern California.
Your child will be in the best of hands while learning to ride those Californian waves, with instructions, tutorials, and help on the water the whole time.
4. Surf Friends
It isn't every day your son or daughter has the chance to learn how to surf, and it also gives them a chance to make new friends that they will have something in common.
They'll remember this summer for the rest of their lives, and each time they'll think about who they got to experience it with. Whether you send them with friends from home or they make new ones there, they'll be glad they went.
5. Stronger Swimmers
To learn to surf, you need to be a strong swimmer. If you need some more time in the water or need to overcome ocean fear, learning to surf is a great distraction. It will make you a stronger swimmer and show you there's little to be afraid of in the water.
