A Typical Day at Coach Cooper's Surf Camp is safe, exciting, and informative. The camp provides a great beginning for the new surfer and the needed guidance for the more experienced. A highly qualified and well trained staff of instructors teach all levels of ability to beginning, intermediate, and advanced surfers.
On the final day of Camp, all students will receive a goodie bag, and a free Surf Camps USA T-Shirt. Our weeklong Camps have a contest with trophies as well.
