As former residents of Brevard County, Florida. We are big fans of Ron Jon's... we love the surf shop and Cape Caribe Resort at the Port. Our nine year old daughter was excited to return "home" for summer vacation and have the opportunity to take a one day surf camp at Ron Jon's. I was scheduled for a private lesson with the school the same afternoon as her camp. The surf camp day could not have been better... The waves started out flat in the morning, which resulted in my private lesson being cancelled, but for the kids at camp, it was perfect! The ocean was calm and the ability to work on their balance on the board in calm water could not have been more ideal. As the day and the kids skills progressed (camp was from 9 AM to 3 PM), the waves began to pick up and all (30 or so kids with a instructor ratio of 4 kids to 1 instructor) were having a great time riding the waves all the way into shore, double riding on the board or doing tricks like jumping from one board to the other. Again, these were ideal surf conditions for beginning children, for which we were extremely blessed and thankful for. I appreciated Ron Jon's initiative to cancel my private lesson due to the conditions and highly recommend their summer surf camp. We were able to take advantage of one day camp option for $99 (what a deal, lessons from 9 AM to 3 PM that included lunch)! A private individual lesson is $65 for one hour or 2 hours for $95... The same instructors that teach the kids at camp offer the individual/private or group lessons for all ages. I am looking forward to our next summer vacation and being able to hang 10 with my daughter after a private lesson. I did recommend and suggest that they offer opportunity for parents to join in the fun during the last hour or so for a small fee during camp!
