All surfing levels are welcome at Surf Hatteras (everyone must be able to swim). If you’re a complete beginner from Nebraska, we’re going to make you into a surfer! If you’re a seasoned ripper, we’re going to bring your surfing to the next level. On any given day, our surf instructors are up bright and early analyzing the forecast and ocean conditions in order to choose the best spots for the particular surfer we have that week.
Daily Film & Photography
Who doesn’t love being treated like a pro? Each morning our photographers and videographers invest hours on the beach shooting wave after wave, ride after ride, so that when our surfers go home, they leave with more than just memories. They’re given a photo/video package with all the best hi-res photo files and a professionally edited movie with all the best footage of the week. Campers also get to watch the raw footage of their surfing after each session, which is one of the best ways to improve your surfing (and to learn not to take yourself to seriously).
Though it’s hard to beat surfing, we do offer a variety of other great activities throughout the week. When we’re not riding waves during the day we’re playing games like bocce, spikeball, waterpolo, and Zukerball (you’ll have to come to see what it is!). At night we’re playing putt putt, climbing giant sand dunes, and making s’mores. We try to enjoy all that Hatteras Island has to offer, from it’s gorgeous scenery and distinctive landmarks to its unique local surf shops and unbeatable ice cream. Basically we’re either having a blast or we’re sleeping.
What About the Food?
At Surf Hatteras we work hard to offer fresh, wholesome, and hearty meals to fuel the average surfer/teenager. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are thoughtfully prepared in-house, and we cater to all kinds of dietary needs and restrictions. If you like food, we got you covered. Some have said it’s the best part of camp.
