The origins of surfing,  a water sport in which athletes ride breaking waves into shore on a piece of specialized equipment called a surfboard, are at least 500 years old, and possibly even older. The earliest surfing took place in Polynesia, a group of islands in the Pacific Ocean. These days people surf all over the world – wherever there is a wave.

Most of the surf camp offer packages for new surfers and help them become proficient riders.

Some surf camps offer overnight accommodations, meals, lessons and surfboards while some other offers only surfing lessons.Most of the instructors use longboards while teaching new surfers because these boards have more paddling speed and stability than shorter boards. That why longboards are very popular among the beginners. Some instructors and learners prefer Funboards. These boards combine the volume and stability of the longboard with the manageable size of a smaller surfboard.

One to one surfing class is best for beginners. But most of the surf camps offer group classes as they are cheaper. Another benefits of group class is that it allows the learners share their feelings, fear and joy with others. Most of the popular surf camps are located such in place that offer perfect surfing conditions for beginners, as well as challenging breaks for advanced students. Surf spots more conducive to instruction typically offer conditions suitable for learning, most importantly, sand bars or sandy bottom breaks with consistent waves. There is one major requirement for anyone considering taking up the Sport of Kings. You need access to an ocean with rideable waves. Surf camps ensure you get the best rideable waves.
