Venice Beach/Santa Monica
Our flagship camp and most experienced with all ages. The first thing you will see when you arrive at the Venice/Santa Monica camp is Owner/Director Gilad Lewandovski, AKA the Man with the Red Hat. After a short introduction to the crew, your child will start the day with a fun kid-orientated yoga session, followed by a safety talk and information about the camp day and daily schedule. The Venice/Santa Monica location is all sand bottom beach break, which is perfect for learning or training in surfing, boogie boarding, body surfing, and ocean safety for swimming and diving. The camp offers shade with canopies and usually Hawaiian Aloha music on the breaks.
Freedom at Manhattan Beach could not be more local! Learning with our born and raised South Bay crew, your children will find themselves right at home with homies who probably went to the same school and know their teachers. Surfers gather in the morning to meet the weekly instructors for a safety talk. Manhattan Beach quality waves are our go-to Freedom Surf Squad summer spot, where a variety of young surfers—from first-timers to advanced surfers—gather to enjoy the conditions. You will find more teen surfers here compared to our Venice/Santa Monica location, though young kids at this location can enjoy a more advanced and smaller camp as well as a tight connection with Freedom instructors.
