Salt Pump opened their new facility in the fall and the idea was hatched when I started climbing as an alternative to flat surf days. Being new to climbing, I found the challenge of climbing stimulating, and with many of Salt Pump’s staff also being surfers, it became clear that the symbiosis between surfing and climbing is strong.
Both surfing and climbing emphasize a relationship with our environment, and while each activity is usually enjoyed with other people, both are essentially individual pursuits that illicit total focus and presence of being.
There’s also a healthy physicality to both surfing and climbing that requires mind and body be in tune with one another in order to succeed and progress.
As a result, I’m happy to introduce a series of Surf + Climb Camps that will take place over the weekends: these Saturday/Sunday programs will run from 9am to 3pm, starting out at Scarborough Beach to take full advantage of light morning winds (good for the surf) and then heading over to Salt Pump after lunch to climb.
As far as I know, it’s the first program of its kind in Maine. We have three weekends scheduled with a maximum of 12 people in each program:
The program is designed to accommodate surfers and climbers of all levels. In the ocean, participants will learn from our team of experienced surf instructors and at the climbing facility, we will all learn (myself included) from the equally experienced climbers at Salt Pump. It’s going to be a ton of fun and I hope you’ll join us!
More information and online signups are available on the Surf + Climb page of our website. I look forward to seeing you in the water and ‘on the wall!’

The last week of camp for the summer of 2015 did not disappoint. Beautiful weather and fun sized, glassy little walls were fun for everyone. And as the photos show, these guys are RIPPING! Check out Pearl (first photo), Anya (third photo), and Nic (fifth photo) — killing it! What a great way to cap off the summer.

The 2015 season launched full speed ahead last week with waves aplenty. The first week of camp saw good waves and beautiful conditions, with lots of opportunities to challenge and exhilarate everyone.
Day #1 of the season brought clean stomach high surf that delivered consistent waves through the end of the week. And we couldn’t even believe it when Monday of week #2 brought even better waves that lasted right up until Friday afternoon.
Thanks everyone for an awesome kickoff to the season!

Somewhat smaller waves this week compared to last, nevertheless, did not disappoint. 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.

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.
Above: Can you beat this? Warm water, sunny skies, glassy waves = GOOD TIMES!
