Surfing the North Coast

August 28 - August 30

This ocean filled weekend will take place on the beaches of the North Coast. The North Coast has some of the best locations for surfing due to the various wave breaks and the magnificent beauty that surrounds. What better way to begin your stay in Humboldt than with a weekend adventure focusing on learning or refining your skills in surfing. This trip will take place at beginner friendly beaches and will consist of paddling and standing up techniques, water safety, and ocean awareness. Surf etiquette tips will shadow all the lessons; by learning and practicing these simple “rules of the water” Humboldt will continue to be a unique place to surf. This trip is designed for those with little or no prior surfing experience, however, experienced surfers are more than welcome to attend as well!

Program Fee (per trip): $164 includes transportation, instruction, surf equipment, food starting with Saturday's breakfast, and campground fees.

Mandatory pre-trip meeting: Wednesday, August 26th, 6:00pm – 7:00pm


Please Note: Our Friday departure time will be based off of the participants' class schedules and will be determined at the pre-trip meeting
