The surfing TEAM & Club
We hope you young grommets have enjoyed surfing with us at Freedom Surf Camps in Venice/Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach and Malibu . This has been an amazing summer for the camp, with amazing fall still to look forward to. September and October can bring some of the best south swells to Los Angeles, California beaches, along with warmer water temperatures, this is the best time of year to expand on what we learned in summer before the waves get too big this winter. When summer comes to an end, we don’t want your kids to forget about riding the waves.
That is why, from September through the end of October, your child is invited to be on the Freedom Surf Team. We have noticed that your child has a talent in the water and we want to expand on that in a constructive and safe manner. The team differs from camp in that all the riders have already been surfing, these are the surfers who want to take it to the next level. This means working on carving, duck diving, reading the waves, understanding the unwritten laws of surfing, using different equipment,Video & photo analysis and traveling to the best surf spots and competitions, along with other ocean safety skills
The Team will get professional instruction for every level!
The beginners will surf at their level in the friendliest conditions appropriate for advancing their skill – Venice , Manhattan, Malibu!
The intermediate & advanced will surf and travel to different surf spots as waves and conditions permit.
The team will meet in Manhattan Beach & Venice on Sundays from 10am to 1pm. We are looking for young surfers who want surfing to be a bigger part of their lives than just a summer camp activity.
We handpicked the team based on what we saw as instructors in the camp, this is a special invitation. The cost for 8 weekend sessions is $400, there will be a a total of 12 sessions this season to accommodate those who have other activities planned. If you need to purchase individual sessions you can do so at $60 per session. Those who come more will ultimately benefit the most from the continual instruction based on each surfers progress.
We want to be there to mentor your child as they transition from beginners to intermediate and beyond. The team is sponsored by Body Glove, so if you are thinking about getting a new wetsuit for the colder months feel free to check in with us first. It is a great privilege that we are partnered with Body Glove, and so we want to pass that on to our team members. We want to make sure they are getting the best custom equipment, for the best prices. We want to form a community that transcends the summer vacation season. So come out and meet the rest of the team members from all around southern California!
