Surf Camp Safety
Safety is the priority in every aspect of all of our programs. At Surf Camp, we strive to manage risk, knowing that we cannot eliminate the inherent risks in an ever changing ocean environment. We begin by providing participants with the best gear and performance learning surfboards that money can buy. To minimize the risk of fin cuts, all of our surfboards are equipped with specialized state of the art rubber tipped safety fins. Beginning surfers gain knowledge and learn skills one step at a time in small group settings. Our industry leading student to instructor ratio allows us to give individualized attention while slowly pushing limits. The goal of our progressional teaching system is to allow participants to experience success and build confidence through accomplishments, no matter how big or small an increment.
Any program is only as good as it’s staff, and their training. All of our employees contribute to over 150 years of surfing experience. Our team consists of trained educators with combined teaching in the thousands of hours on all levels to all types of students. This is no ordinary staff. We only employ the highest quality individuals with overlapping and complementary qualifications. We comb through hundreds of applications a year to hand select a few new quality individuals. All employees must go through our comprehensive in-house certification program before being granted the responsibility of student instruction.
We have a deep knowledge and experience base of both watermen and women. On our staff, we have an Ocean Safety Director, an EMT, and a Wilderness First Responder. All Surf Camp instructors are American Red Cross lifeguard, CPR and First Aid Certified. All surfing lesson instructors are certified in CPR, First Aid, and trained in water safety. Most importantly we also have a burning desire to better ourselves in every aspect of our programs. We utilize consultation and training from Ocean Safety experts outside our organization for continuing education. We value and incorporate feedback from students, staff, and parents as we continually evaluate and better our policies and instruction methodologies.
All of our quality control policies and procedures take valuable resources to implement and carry out. At the end of every day, your utmost safety and quality experience means everything to us as we want you to have an unforgettable adventure that will change your life forever!
