We have over 100 different breaks to surf here on the Island for all levels of surfer’s from first timers to advanced riders. Each morning we will set out to find the best waves for your ability level. Then go off on an Island adventure afterwards.

I heard the surf is big in Hawaii can I handle it?
Yes, Hawaii’s North Shore is known to have some of the biggest and best surf in the world. In fact the waves here are as famous as the surfers who ride them. However what most people don’t understand is that there are waves for all levels of surfers on the Island of Oahu. We have some great waves for beginner and Intermediate surfers when the waves get too big on the north shore. So the best thing about being on an Island is you can drive and find a wave that suits your ability. Camp owner, Jason Senn, has been conducting lessons here for years and thinks this is the easiest place in the world to teach someone to surf. These camps are geared towards all levels of surfers, so if whether you are a beginner or Advanced surfer we will find waves for you.
Can I bring my own equipment?
Yes, you are welcome to bring your own equipment if you have it in fact we recommend it, especially for those Intermediate/Advanced campers.
