Welcome to Main Beach Surf Expeditions, one of the most popular and fun camps in the Hamptons! If your child is looking for excitement and adventure, they’ll find it at MBX surf camp. Our focus is on surfing, (and safety) but we cover a variety of sports. Each camper receives focused attention, group sizes are small, and all lessons are taught by certified instructors and professionals.
A New Look For MBX Surf Camp In 2014
The camp runs five days a week, and each week is a complete session. Two full activities are arranged every day along with transport to and from those activities. Healthy snacks, drinks, and lunches are always provided. We meet in the morning at Main Beach Surf + Sport in the Wainscott Village at 9:30am. Camp ends at 3:30pm. Campers should be confident swimmers, but no previous surfing experience is required – just the willingness to get their feet wet and have a blast!
At the core of any MBX experience is surfing. It’s the simplest, most stripped down way to have fun in the water. All you need is a surfboard and a wave, so there’s no better place to start. Instructors delve into water safety, wave knowledge, paddling technique, both basic and advanced maneuvers, and board design.
In addition to surfing MBX campers enjoy Stand up paddling on the ocean and bay on calm days. Beautiful kayaking tours are undertaken with an emphasis on teaching correct paddling technique and safety on the amazing peconic bay estuary. Daily ocean safety sessions are conducted emphasizing the reading of ocean conditions, self-rescues and ocean specific swim techniques. Red cross accredited swim cards are distributed that reflect each swimmers ability level at the end of the week.
Only 24 spots are available each session. This makes for a better learning experience and child-to-teacher ratio.
