If your number one priority for your vacation is all about the surfing and getting as much wave time as possible, all with the additional factor that you have limited funds, then surf camps will definitely be a cheap surfing holiday the way to go. These options are all about being able to surf to your heart's content until the sun sinks or exhaustion forces you out of the ocean and all without having to spend a fortune.
The accommodation during your surf vacation will vary depending on which choice you settle for. Options range from dorm rooms – shared with your own surf crew or fellow surf vacationers – shared double rooms or shared rooms with 4 beds. However, there is also usually the option to take your own single room if privacy and the chance to retreat (whenever the fun and socializing get too much) are important to you and are in line with your trip budget. The great thing here is you choose – shared, super-social, cheap, ideal for solo travelers perhaps, or privacy.
The surf services you will find attached to your surf vacation camp are varied and diverse and can either be found as inclusive in the price or as optional extras. Lessons are often part of the deal and cover every skill level – from complete beginners who have never tried surfing before, through the intermediate levels where improving and maximizing surf style are the focus and on up to experienced surfers who want to address any aspect of their style and skill.
Surf guiding is also found, where the staff at your camp will get you mobile and searching out the best (and sometimes secret) breaks in an area. This can be combined with lessons or this option can be a great way for experienced surfers who don't want or need surf coaching to have a real surf adventure holidays and seriously add to their ‘breaks ridden’ list.
Things such as equipment rental, meals with a variety of arrangements, swimming pools, Wi-Fi and much more besides can all be offered as part of your surfing camp experience – there are even such things as a cinema or babysitting services on request – the possibilities are endless.
The social aspect of surf vacation camps makes it a very popular and fitting choice for solo travelers with the instant opportunity of meeting fellow surfers and giving you a place where new friendships can be forged; an ideal way to take the 'lonely' out of solo travel. The surfing camp option is also a great fit for groups of friends, girls and those who like to combine partying with their surfing. Anyone who wants to learn to surf or is interested in taking their surfing to the next progressive level will find a surf camp vacation a great place to do just that and it is for this reason such options are popular with both beginner to intermediate level surfers.
No matter what you group size or make-up or skill level, one thing is for certain – surfing camps are well suited to those looking for budget to medium standards and who want to make their money go as far as it possibly can……with LOTS of surfing in the whole equation.
