During this surf camp, you will spend your night in a tent at Manresa Uplands State Park Campground. You do not have to worry about water supply since the tent camp has a close access to bathrooms and warm showers as well as has a solar heated rinsed-off water right in the campsite.


You will get surfing classes during this surf camp. They will be divided into two sessions including a morning and sunset sessions. The morning session will start around 07:00 every day since waves are usually good in the morning and you will surf until about noon. On the other hand, the sunset surfing session will be held in the last few hours before sunset when waves generally get good again.

In the afternoon, you will have afternoon trips in town such as visiting the boardwalk, the surfing museum, and the Pearson Arrow surfboard factory as well as watch movies. Your evenings will be spent relaxing by the fire, playing music, and telling stories.

Surf campers will get videotaped as well as photographed throughout the week and go home with an edited, soundtracked DVD of a week during your stay at the camp along with a special edition Club Ed Surf School and Camps' T-shirt made in Maui. The surfing class will focus only on beginner and intermediate surfers.


This beginner class will be useful for you who have never surfed before. During this class, you will be introduced to surfing fundamentals, etiquettes, safety, wave dynamics, paddling skills, surfboard positioning, maneuvering, proper stand-up, and riding techniques.


Intermediate class will focus on enhancing skill from what you have learned in the previous surfing lessons. The point of this class will improve the skills you have. You will also practice wave judgment, riding the curl, angled takeoffs, trimming, and cutbacks lesson during this class.

Ed Guzman
Ed Guzman has devoted his life to surfing. In 1969 at the age 12 living in San Francisco, he started to surf Ocean Beach and continued through his Salinas High School years, surfing daily in the Monterey Bay. Residing in Santa Cruz since 1986 has given him intimate knowledge of the local waves. Ed has surfed almost every day of his adult life from the smallest to the largest waves on earth. He especially enjoys the largest waves both paddling and tow-in surfing.


During this surf camp, you will spend most of your time on Manresa Beach, California. Manresa Beach is a special place for summer surf camps and its surfing classes because the waves are very consistent and out of the way from the general summer crowds. Moreover, the dolphins cruise is by on most days in the early morning and the place are visited occasionally by sea lions, otters, and pelicans soaring the waves.


During this surf camp, you will get daily breakfast, lunch, dinner, and also snacks. Breakfast selections include cold cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, french toast, eggs, and bacon with a variety of juices and fresh fruit.
