So much fun! My daughter is in her third year of surf camp and does multiple weeks each summer. The instructors are great and make sure all of the kids are having fun, no matter what! I’ve seen major improvement in my daughter’s ability to surf as well as her confidence and knowledge in the ocean (tides, rip currents, winds etc.). Keep up the awesome job!

We had the best time learning to surf. Highly recommend!! All four of us - 2 adults and 2 teens got up on the board in less than an hour (my daughter rode the wave all the way to the beach on her first try). It was an awesome experience. Based on her success of our first lesson we already booked another one.

It doesn't matter what surf shop you step into, Evan Thompson and his brothers get rave reviews. Not only for being good surfers and instructors, but for being good men, community citizens and teaching our kids to be good people too. They are great role models.

This was our 4th summer with Evan and our son wouldn't surf with anyone else.

The Eddings are HUGE fans.

It doesn't matter which surf shop you go to—from Ponte Vedra to Atlantic Beach—if you mention Evan Thompson, people have compliments. He and his brothers are great young men and leaders to our children.

This June was our third summer in a row at Even Thompson Surf camp. On the last day, my son came home and said he wanted to attend every week this summer! He caught his first "pipe" and it has set him on fire!

Great instruction and character building. Highly recommend.

Absolutely the best on the Beach!! We set up lessons for our granddaughters first time to surf. These guys were ready and offered a one-on-one lesson of instruction. i had seen two other schools on the beach earlier and there were 15 to 20 surfers and maybe 3 instructors in the water. They had a great time and next day we rented boards and did pretty well with the instruction the received on trying it on their own!

My 7 year old son loved this camp! This was our first time doing surf camp. The coaches were encouraging, knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming from the very first moment to the last. I stayed at the beach and watched and I was very impressed with the level of safety and concern for each surfer. The coach:surfer ratio was great and made me feel at ease. They had appropriate breaks for the age groups and even dry land lessons for the kids. My son had the best time and learned a lot. We will definitely sign up again next summer and would highly recommend.

Fabulous surf camp run by local Thompson surfers. Evan Thompson takes incredible care of all the surfers, makes the camp fun and educational, constant supervision by staff. I bought one week of surf camp last year for my grandson as his birthday gift, and he had such a marvelous time that he specifically requested a repeat this year for his birthday.

I was very hesitant to book an appointment because I’ve never surfed before, but Tristan was super patient and helpful. Good instruction and constructive feedback. I have no athletic ability & he was able to help me gain a better understanding of surfing! Totally recommend!

Awesome week of ‘shredding’ and ‘nar’ surfing. The Thompsons have it all figured out. Organized, from a parent’s perspective, and ‘banging’ from a kid’s. Highly recommended. May do it all again next year. Or next week. 🤙

Our 12 year old grandson has been wanting to learn to surf. I wanted him to learn the “right” way, so as a birthday present we gave him a week at surf camp. He loved it and was getting up and riding some waves in a short time. His only regret was that he didn’t go to camp earlier in the summer. Instructors are attentive and nice. I highly recommend.
