American Surf Academy Summer 2018 (Ages 12-17)


"That’s it Groms! You’ve spent all year looking out the window, checking the wave and dreaming of surfing all day - now it’s time to do it!"

The awesome American Surf Academy is the #1 surf camp in San Diego for teens ages 12 to 17.  Whether it's their first surfing experience ever or if they want to get a new perspective on their surfing, our team will have them ripping up the waves in no time. Some of our advanced surf campers have gone on to become competitive surfers, winning contests around the world. 

Our expert instructors are all great surfers with knowledge of the ocean. Every instructor at American Surf Academy is CPR and First Aid certified. The instructor to student ratio is 1:5 maximum. All students must know how to swim. 

We offer a morning camp, an afternoon camp and a full day camp. During our peak season, starting the week after July 4th, we also offer a mid-morning camp.

For all surf camps we also offer surf photo packages. Pick up a surfboard shaped USB stick at the end of the camp week with action shots, portraits and group photos ready to print or shared of Facebook or Instagram! Please register for a photo package during your online sign up, call us or sign up on your first day of camp!
