Learn to surf! Camp on bluffs just above the crashing Pacific Ocean surf on the central California coast.  This course is designed for beginner surfers, yet more experienced surfers are welcome to take the classes and improve upon their skills. This week of surf training covers all the basics.  Learn to read the surf conditions, choose the safest entry and exit point of the surf break, also paddling and wave catching techniques, standing up, turning and surfing etiquette. Get the best tips and coaching from the excellent surfing staff from UC Santa Cruz. All you need is your swimsuit, reasonable swimming ability, and a desire to hit the surf. We provide the rest.  Spectacular trails are there to explore after your surf sessions each day.  On top of that, the intriguing city of Santa Cruz and its world famous boardwalk are nearby.  Trip fee includes transportation, food, camping, surf instructors, and all the equipment (including surfboards and wetsuits, and any camping gear) you’ll need! You can get one credit in PE/A 142, “Wilderness Leadership” for participation during this trip. This class counts as an activity credit for graduation.
