Junior American Surf Academy



Starting summer 2016 we group surfers ages 9 to 11 years old under our American Surf Academy (ASA) program. The campers will be surfing as "Junior ASA" in a separated group. Tweens, usually too big to be considered a kid and to too young to be a teenager now have a place all their own to surf, learn about the ocean, the environment, make friends their own age and have the best summer ever. The tween surfers also have different specific needs from the kids at La Jolla Surf Camp, which include longer water time for more waves, advanced coaching, and higher expectations from the surf instructors.

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 1:4 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!
