“I had too much fun at surf camp,” said nobody ever!

All jokes aside, this STOKED group of Surf & Adventure Chica Surf Campers were throwing down some of the best soft-top rides of the season at Little Island Park last week, and the very talented Erika Mills was there to capture the action! So far, the summer season has provided nearly perfect conditions for learning the ropes of surfing at Little Island Park — uncrowded lineups, slow-rolling 1- to 2-foot waves, mostly clean morning conditions and the guidance of our awesome Chica Surf Camp instructors ensuring these girls become certified surfer girls. We still have plenty of spaces open for the remaining Chica Surf Camps of the summer, which run on Thursdays and Fridays starting at 9 a.m. at Little Island Park. The $100 cost of the camp includes an awesome goodie bag from our camp sponsors, including a Billabong Camps t-shirt complete with our own S&A logo and a pizza party at the shop following Friday’s session! Call us at (757) 721-6210 or follow this link to sign up.

There’s always a special energy that surrounds our Chica Surf Camp, and its first week of the summer season proved to be no exception! It’s no secret that the surf can have a “macho” vibe from time to time; but this unique, girls-only camp looks to level the playing field by empowering these girls to claim their place in the lineup. Our tried-and-true instruction methods are put into action by our staff of female surf instructors, creating an atmosphere of positivity and encouragement perfect for learning the ropes of wave riding. It’s taught by surfer girls for surfer girls!

Our opening week of this fun-filled, two-day camp saw plenty of great waves ridden and even more smiles and laughs as longtime Chica Surf Camp instructors Camie Romano and Candace Burns led seven stoked campers at Little Island Park.
