Surf Camp Frequently Asked Questions
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:
Plenty of water
Sunscreen + Sunglasses
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 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 9:30 am sharp . 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.
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 call to parents around 8:30 am 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.
