It was sunny and hot for most of the week and there were plenty of waves out there for everyone to have a great time.

Surf Camp Photos from Weeks 3 and 4

The waves for weeks #3 and #4 of Surf Camp provided non-stop fun. We had light winds and sunny skies to make the small but consistent pulse of swell a perfect mid-summer treat. There wasn't much time spent out of the water in either week.
