    • 2023 surfing

      Summer Sessions (SS) is the absolute best place in New Hampshire for kids to learn to surf. Their programs are the perfect way for new surfers to learn and progress in the sport alongside their friends. This program, open to Oyster River Participants, is designed to introduce kids (age 6-13) to surfing in a safe and fun environment. No experience necessary and all equipment is included! Each participant will also receive a summer sessions hat, water bottle and gift certificate for a free future rental.

      Their instructors will work with your child to help get them accustomed to the mechanics and timing of the waves as well as teach them the skills to enjoy riding them. If they have never surfed before, this is their chance to learn! If they have surfed before, their camps help refine their techniques and develop a foundation for more advanced maneuvers. The program is held in Rye, New Hampshire, at Sawyers Beach, just south of Jenness State Beach and only 3 Miles North of Hampton, NH.

      Your SS program will include professional instruction from a staff with more than 40 years of surf experience. A maximum student to instructor ratio of 4:1

          Unlike ORYA’s regular season program which builds from skill work to game-play scenarios, this program will focus exclusively on individual skill with the ball. Developing ball handling skills, offensive moves and shot mechanics will be primary goal of the program. All sessions will be led by Coach Jason Campbell.

          *Register for the program corresponding to your players grade within the 2023-2024 school year (grade they are entering in the fall).
