As you know, our programs fill up fast, so take a look at your calendar and get your booking in ASAP to guarantee the availability of your preferred dates.

If you’re not ready to commit to a multi-day program or you want to get the whole family in the water together, taking a Surf Lesson is a perfect summer activity!

We offer lessons five days a week throughout the summer (Tuesday – Saturday) and accommodate all ages 9 and up. Our lessons run in the mornings from 9:15am to noon and the schedule and sign-ups are available here:

P.S. We can accommodate groups of up to 20 people for events and private lessons, so don’t hesitate to give us a call if you want to plan an amazing experience for a big group!


Surf + Climb Camp unfolds over selected weekends in small groups and combines a morning of surfing, lunch at the beach, and climbing in the afternoon up the road at Salt Pump. Tons of fun and no one gets bored! Ages 9 to 17.

  • Session #1 – Sat/Sun, July 20th – 21st
  • Session #2 – Sat/Sun, Aug 10th – 11th

Learn more and sign up:


This month long program runs in the month of September and is designed to help more advanced surf campers take the next step in advancing their skills in New England’s fall surf season, when chances for bigger waves and ideal conditions abound.

Our small group meets every weekend and we cap the program off by taking a local surf trip to check out some new waves and conditions at another local surf break. Sign ups start mid-summer. Learn more here:

Don’t hesitate to call or email with your questions or for help signing up for one of our programs. Thanks as always and I look forward to seeing you on the beach and in the water!

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.

Surf Night for 2014 NYA Graduating Class

Surf Camp was lucky enough to celebrate graduation with the 36 seniors from North Yarmouth Academy class of 2014. We got the entire group out for a night of surfing at Scarborough Beach last week during their Project Graduation program. After a cold week leading up to the event, we lucked out with beautiful weather and one of the best evenings of surf so far this year.
