Learn to surf – or improve your surfing skills – with Ohana surf camps! Ohana has a decade of camp experience on Galveston Island teaching kids how to enjoy surfing and offer lessons everyday of the week at the lowest prices in Texas.
Ohana has assembled a group of experienced watermen and women to serve as instructors who share their enthusiasm for the sport of surfing and love for the ocean. Ohana’s model of teaching is based on a “safety first attitude,” so get ready for another summer of fun.
Campers will be met each morning at 9:00 a.m. by their own Ohana Surf Camp instructor on the beach between 28th & 29th St. on Seawall Blvd. (weekdays) or West Beach / Hershey Beach (weekends) on beautiful Galveston Island. These are excellent sites with good waves, sandy bottoms, and safe environments for learning to surf.
As required, our instructors are Open Water Safety Certified, as well as camp being monitored by the Galveston Beach Patrol Lifeguards which are on duty at the 27th and 29th street jetties from 9:00 a.m. until the end of the day. Surf Camp hours are 9:00 am till 12:00 noon daily through the summer season.
Throughout the summer camp experience, we have several individuals join us to teach our camper’s about surfing, the Gulf of Mexico and its’ inhabitants. Weekly one of those guests – a marine biologist during the week will attend to teach the students about sea life and how to protect our beachfront natural resources. They will also create a ‘hands on’ experience by catching sea life for the campers to safely handle in an on shore classroom. We also explain how waves are generated here along the Texas Gulf Coast and around the world, so our future surfers know what to expect.
Other beach activities during flat spells allow for additional advance training, pop-up drills, paddling, races, beach games and more. Lastly we also offer on the last day of camp a photo program to capture your child in action, as a team member, individual or within the large surf camp group shot – and how can we not forget the famous pizza party to end the camp on Thursdays!
Grab your swim gear, a towel, your flip flops and some sunscreen – and get ready for a summer of fun with your friends at Ohana Surf & Skate.
Please note: Any skate days student must provide their own equipment (skateboard/helmet/knee & elbow pads)
