Campsurf has been the official surf school of the city of Manhattan Beach since 1997. 

The California Business Journal dubbed Campsurf “Los Angeles’ premier surf school”. Campsurf provides a safe, fun and educational introduction to surfing and the ocean environment for boys and girls ages 4 and up. Our camps are different in the way we pass on surfing and ocean knowledge. Our low student to instructor ratio of 4 : 1 guarantees surfing improvement, personal attention, and most importantly, safety. If you’re looking for a solid foundation in surfing, book a summer surf camp with us!
