• Surfing w/ Summer sessions

    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 8-14) to surfing in a safe and fun environment. No experience necessary and all equipment is included!

    Our 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. And they will have a ton of fun as well. If they have never surfed before, this is their chance to learn! If they have surfed before, our 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. Wetsuit and board rental for each session. A maximum student to instructor ratio of 4:1.
