Chevron Surf Camp: Monday, June 29 - Monday, August 31 - 9:00 a.m.

The City of Hermosa Beach Surf Camp is one of the South Bay’s most popular summer programs for kids ages 7-17 years. Learn about the ocean environment, basic surf techniques, tricks, ocean safety, and safe places to surf. Weekly classes meet Mon-Fri (except the day of July 4 and the week of Aug. 22) with two sessions per week: 9-10:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. to 12:25 p.m.
Surf classes maintain a 1:6 teacher-to-student ratio that promotes safety and a lot of individual attention. Each student uses a BZ soft surfboard and receives three photos, T-shirt and rash guard. Wetsuits are recommended. You must be an intermediate swimmer to participate. Bring water, snack and sweatshirt if attending both sessions. The camp is run by long time surfer Vince Ray. Ray has been teaching surfing for 17 years and is competing in NSSA, WSA, ASA, and other local surf contests. He also coaches junior high kids, so they have a better chance of making the high school surf teams.
One class: $124/$119 resident discount Two classes: $204/$199. Sign ups available at www.hermosabch.orgContact director Vince Ray at 370-1918.
