Frequently Asked Questions


 What do I bring to the surf camp?

Wave catchers tries to provide most of the essentials such as your surf board and more, but we recommend you bring the following items to ensure you have an optimal learning experience:

  • Water or Sports Drink (we do not recommend sodas)

  • Snack

  • Towel

  • We RECOMMEND lycra shorts underneath the boys swim trunks (prevents rashes)

Can we get a refund if we aren’t able to attend?

Due to limited availability per camp, all purchases are final.

Where on the beach is the camp held?

For classes at Topsail Island: Public Beach Access #15

For classes at Wrightsville Beach: Public Beach Access #2

How do I know if my child would be better with a camp vs. private lessons?

The camp setting is ideal for children who work well with others, don’t require any major medical attention, and want to learn the basics of surfing/surf safety in a collaborative and immersive environment.

If you are the parent of a child who is looking for more than the general knowledge found in most group settings or has a unique need, private lessons are a more ideal experience and will most likely provide your child the most value.
