Surf Camp Frequently Asked Questions

Warm Winds takes a different approach to teaching kids how to surf - introducing the lifestyle and sport of surfing through fun and knowledge based phases. Not only do we teach surfing, we also have daily topics that teach safety, basics of surfing, surf etiquette, equipment knowledge, and basic oceanography and environmental awareness. Our goal is to give surf campers a unique and educational experience that they will remember forever!

Camper safety is extremely important to us - therefore we always have a maximum student to instructor ratio of 5:1, and often as low as 3:1. This way campers get the attention they need to maximize safety and surf coaching.

What are the age requirements for surf camp?

Our surf camps accept kids from age 6 thru 16. For the younger campers, ability to swim is a requirement. 

Before each surf session, we typically group surfers by age and skill level - so campers will have the opportunity to surf with campers their own age. 

Warm Winds will provide all gear required for surfing, including surfboards, rashguards, and wetsuits (if necessary). All surf campers should bring the following packed in a backpack that is easy to carry: 

Lunch, Plenty of water, Sunscreen + Sunglasses, Towel, Shoes/Sandals, Sweathshirt, Hat for sun protection, Raincoat for poor weather

We also recommend a pair of lycra shorts for male campers to wear under their wetsuits to prevent rash from surfing all day and playing beach games. If a rash does occur, we recommend a rash gel that can relieve discomfort for the remainder of the week. These items can be purchased at our retail location.

We will be opening registration for surf camp very soon! 

Feel free to give us a call anytime during normal business hours to add your name to our waitlist at (401) 789-9040.

Our friendly staff will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the program.

No worries! Our surf camps are open to surfers of all skill levels.

We typically break into surf groups seperated by age and skill level before each session, so if your camper already has the basics down they will be paired with an instructor focused on teaching them the next step.

Whether it's their first season surfing, or they're a seasoned surf camp vet - Warm Winds instructors will take their surfing to a new level!

Our team of qualified surf instructors have a combined experience of over 40 years. They live to surf and are true ambassadors of the lifestyle. Every instructor is certified in both CPR and First Response, and has been trained thoroughly by our team of lead surf instructors. 

There will also be active lifeguards on duty at the Town Beach between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Feel free to bring your own wetsuits to camp, however we do not allow campers to bring their own "hard" surfboards. At surf camp we use a fleet of soft top surfboards that are both safe and fun for everyone to use. All of the equipment is available for purchase at Warm Winds Surf Shop. Please reach out to our team for questions related to equipment. 

Surf Camp is held at Narragansett Town Beach, located at  29 Boston Neck Road, Narragansett, Rhode Island 02882.

We ask that all surf campers get dropped off at the semi-circle/drop off spot in front of the South Pavilion @ Narragansett Town Beach at 9:00 AM for Youth surf camp

This is where you will meet our team of instructors and check in will begin. PLEASE DO NOT PULL INTO THE SOUTH PARKING LOT FOR DROP OFF - PER THE TOWN OF NARRAGANSETT. 
Note: Please arrive 10-15 minutes early on the first day of camp.

No worries! Since surfing is primarily a "wet" sport, we typically hold camp during rainstorms unless thunderstorms or heavy wind/dangerous conditions occur. Therefore, it is important for campers to have something warm and dry to put on - pack a sweatshirt and rain coat.

During rain days - we typically have a long session in the morning and then take a trip to the shop and watch a movie during lunch time while everyone drys up. Pick up will likely be at the shop on rain days, but we will communicate this in advance.

If the weather is really bad and conditions do not allow for camp to run, we will cancel the day and use Friday as the make up day. We will typically make the announcement to parents the night before, or around 8 am the latest in the event of cancellation.

All cancellations and rescheduling must be made  at least 1 week prior  to the start of camp.

Any cancellations made within 7 days to 72-hours prior to the start of camp will only be eligible for a partial refund (50%). If you reschedule in this time window, a rescheduling fee of $75 will be assessed.

Cancellations within 72-hours of the start of camp will incur the full charge of the camp - no refunds + no ability to reschedule.

Please get in touch with our staff and get put on the waitlist for a week that is full. Things change, and cancellations do happen!
