Surfing Camps in Southern ME
There is nothing more exhilarating than that first successful drop into a wall of rushing water! As you paddle for all you’re worth, seeing the wave start to surround and overtake you, wondering if you’ll claim a glorious victory or a humbling “drink from the fire hose” every particle of your being is tingling. You feel the split second when the time is right... you pop up! Success! Welcome to surfing, the way it should be! Aquaholics Surf Camps make easy to fall in love with the healthy sport of surfing in the pristine surroundings of Southern Maine. The camps are geared for beginner to novice, children and adults. We pride ourselves on our succes rate. Nearly every surfer is up and riding by the end of the first camp session. By the end of the week, our “campers” feel confident enough to try it on their own. Aquaholics is fully insured and sanctioned by area Parks and Recreation departments. Register for surf camp here.
Don't let the cold weather fool you- it's a great time to surf. Aquaholics offers surf camps throughout the Fall and Winter in Southern Maine. We’ve had several adventerous surf students take their first lesson during a blizzard. Talk about extreme! You'll feel like a super hero after surfing winter conditions!
Are you registering your kids for Surf Camp? Would your kids prefer to SUP? Sign up for SUP "Camp" and everyone has a blast in the same time slot!
Do you have a child under age 6 who would like to participate in camp? We now offer "Squirt Camp", for the little squirts. We dedicate a private instructor to your little one for a safe and fun experience. The little kids go out with the rest of the kids, surf in their own area (away from the other kids to keep them safe) while still feeling like part of the camp experience. And they get to participate in the "Award Ceremony" on Friday. If you aren’t sure your little grom can handle a full week, a regular private lesson can be scheduled.
