WB Surf Camp Instructor of the Week for 10/24/11: Summer Britt

Having grown up surfing on Wrightsville Beach every summer down at the south end, Summer came to us hoping to share her love of surfing with others. Not only did she accomplish that, but she brought the warmth and fun of her namesake to our Teen Overnight and Day Camps all season long. Whether she was in the water or entertaining our kids in the van, she definitely brought on the stoke every day! Now, back at school in Charlotte, she always has her eyes on the wave forecast just waiting for that next swell so she can jet down here and charge.

1. What drew you to a position at WB Surf Camp? I wanted to do something different this summer, and yet didn’t want to impose on my “beach time”. This seemed like and WAS the best transitional job possible! I love teaching others, so why not teach them something I love.

2. Who is your favorite surfer and why? Carissa Moore, she has dedicated her life to becoming a better surfer, and that girl could rip at age 5! Born with a talent for surfing!

4. What is your favorite surf break? Oceanic Pier. What can I say, Wrightsville Beach is my favorite place to be in the whole world!

5. What inspired you to start surfing? I pretty much stunk at all other sports, and this was something different that hardly no one did in Charlotte. It was such a fun challenge to embark on.

6. Where was your most memorable session? Last years Hurricane or TS swell, Biggest waves I have seen on Wrightsville in a while. Loved it.
