Surf Camp Frequently Asked Questions
What Separates Warm Winds surf camps from others?
What is the student instructor ration at camp?
Are your surf instructors qualified?
What are the age requirements for surf camp?
What do we need to bring to camp?
Warm Winds will provide all gear required for surfing, including surfboards, rashguards, and wetsuits (if necessary). All surf campers should bring the following packed in a backpack that is easy to carry:
Plenty of water
Sunscreen + Sunglasses
Hat for sun protection
Raincoat for poor weather
We also recommend a pair of lycra shorts for male campers to wear under their wetsuits to prevent rash from surfing all day and playing beach games. If a rash does occur, we recommend a rash gel that can relieve discomfort for the remainder of the week. These items can be purchased at our retail location.
Can surf campers bring their own equipment?
How do I register for surf camp?
Where do we meet for surf camp?
We ask that all surf campers get dropped off at the semi-circle/drop off spot in front of the South Pavilion @ Narragansett Town Beach at 9:30 am sharp. This is where you will meet our team of instructors and check in will begin. PLEASE DO NOT PULL INTO THE SOUTH PARKING LOT FOR DROP OFF - PER THE TOWN OF NARRAGANSETT. Note: Please arrive 10-15 minutes early on the first day of camp.
What happens when it rains?
No worries! Since surfing is primarily a "wet" sport, we typically hold camp during rainstorms unless thunderstorms or heavy wind/dangerous conditions occur. Therefore, it is important for campers to have something warm and dry to put on - pack a sweatshirt and rain coat. During rain days - we typically have a long session in the morning and then take a trip to the shop and watch a movie during lunch time while everyone drys up. Pick up will likely be at the shop on rain days.
If the weather is really bad and conditions do not allow for camp to run, we will cancel the day and use Friday as the make up day. We will typically make the call to parents around 8:30 am in the event of cancellation.
