I stayed at the school for 7 nights and had a blast. Edison is an excellent instructor and I really enjoyed my time out on the water. The camp was beautiful and relaxing. The only change that I would rent a car next time. I will definitely be returning.

I came to surf camp with two friends from college. After many years and many miles apart, this was a great opportunity for us to get back together. My 2 friends had surfed before, I had years and years ago, so basically a beginner. We had lessons with Edison; over 3 days, he took us to multiple beaches where the... More

I stayed at the Surf Camp in August and had an amazing time. Everything is very relaxed and the accommodation was great. Jenni was really friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome. The surfing was great and although Edison was unavailable that week (he was badly injured the day I arrived...) Sash was fantastic. I was quite nervous... More

I booked a 3 day multicourse with Edison. Unfortunately, or rather luckily, it was only me and another guy for the first two days. The first instructor Sash was good but could but didn´t give as much constructive criticism, but he was helpful and made sure that you came up on the board. Edison worked much more with constructive criticism... More

Edison & Jenni were accomodating from the beginning. I made last minute plans to travel to the North Shore around the holiday season (busy time due to winter swells/vacations). While Edison & Jenni's camp accomodations were full, I still wanted to attend surf camp. They were nice enough to recommend me to stay with one of their good friends (who... More
