I had moved to North Carolina from Colorado and wanted to learn how to surf, considering I grew up snowboarding. I was given the suggestion of WB Surf Camp from a family member who had seen one of their ads. I looked them up online, figured I would give them a try and signed up for a 3 day adult surf camp in late August of 2010. I was so impressed with that first surf camp experience that I signed up for their Tortola adult trip that took place a few months later. The professional camp setup and knowledgeable staff made my introduction to surfing an awesome experience. Instructors Jason and Steve walked and talked their way through surf safety, water safety, getting up on the board, reading a wave, beach care and surf session etiquette that I could not wait to buy my own board after the camp and start surfing on my own. Jason and Steve answered every question I had in a professional and encouraging way. They wanted everyone in our group to learn how to surf and enjoy every minute of our time in and out of the water. Because of this wonderful experience, I have attended their Caribbean surf trip (which was better than I could have imagined) and setup other day sessions with WB Surf Camp for my family and friends when we visit Wrightsville Beach. I can’t say enough good things about the staff and experiences I have had with WB Surf Camp and would recommend them to anyone who wants to learn to surf. I now have a young son and look forward to the day when I can sign him up for a day camp with the staff at WB Surf Camp, I know he is going to have an awesome time. Read more

Surfing Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Surfing is one of the most popular beach activities, and there are opportunities to learn for all ages. It takes patience and practice, but learning with a group is one of the best ways to make sure you achieve the ultimate dream of riding the waves. It's easy to find lessons for all different experience levels and soon you're out on the beach enjoying learning a new skill. Let Stride find the perfect surfing group trip for you!

About Surfing Vacations:

Surfing can be a wonderful way to get back in touch with nature and escape the daily grind.  There are many destinations in the world that offer wonderful surf---for varying levels of ability and varying price points. The best pointer is to do some research as to what the conditions are likely to be like in your chosen destination at the time of year you’re planning to go, as waves can vary dramatically at different times of year with summer not necessarily being the best season for surf.

How Much Surfing Would You Like To Do On Your Tour?

Some trips offer the opportunity to try your hand at surfing for one lesson or one day. This can be a great chance to see if surfing is something you’d like to do more of, or for those who aren’t sure if they want to commit to a full week or more of surf camp. Just don’t expect to be surfing a barrel in a day! 

For those ready to learn or develop their skills, week - long, or longer holidays provide plenty of time to get used to the waves and work on your pop-up in the white water or start honing some green waves.  

Surf Camps

Whether you’re a first timer or have tried your hand a few times before, Surf Camps can be a great way to practice popping up on the waves.

One of the great advantages of surf camps is that it’s a relaxed way to learn to surf with little investment required by you. Boards and wetsuits are all provided, with no need to buy your own. Surf camps are often located right on the beach with walk-in access to waves, although some may be located a short drive or walk away from the beach. 

Surf camps vary in vibes with some being extremely chilled and laid back (think yoga classes and massages by the beach too) while others have more of a party vibe. Have a look into what feels right for your trip.  

Standards of accommodation can range widely too. Some camps are literally camps in that accommodation is provided in either basic or luxury tents. Other surf camps provide higher end accommodation in fixed buildings, apartments, or lodge-style accommodation. 

Board basis varies from trip to trip, from fully inclusive 3 meals a day to self catered trips. Some camps (usually the higher end ones that focus more on yoga as well) offer a vegetarian, vegan or healthy-eating focused menu. 

Exploring the Local Area

Some camps will take you to the same spot each day, while others will take you to different beaches depending on conditions. Surfing can be a great way to get to know the coastline of your destination from (literally) a different angle.  

Many camps also include a ‘day-off’ or ‘non-surfing-day’ where excursions may be organized to nearby towns, cities or to do non-surfing activities such as horse riding on the beach. Check your trip itinerary or with your tour operator for details.  

Where to Go On Your Surfing Tour

Depending on your personal point of view, surfing is arguably most enjoyable in tropical destinations with warm water, where a full wetsuit is not required. Some destinations are extremely popular with many surf schools lining the beach. This can create great vibes but can lead to competition for space in the water. 

If you want a quieter surfing experience have a look for camps or vacations that are in spots with fewer surf schools on the same stretch of beach. When in the water always be courteous to other surfers, even if they do not extend the same to you. 

A Word About Learning to Surf

Rome was not built in a day, and (from this writer’s personal experience) neither were professional surfers. Surfing is an amazing activity that can take time and patience to master - but investing in a week can be a great first step. Go with the flow, stay in the moment, don’t look down and feel the adrenaline rush as you catch your first wave!
