Surf & English in California


Surf’s up, dudes!
Want to learn English and ride the waves in one of the most iconic surf locations in the world? Then this is the camp for you!

For teens aged 15+

Our California Surf & English camp is housed in the Cal State University Long Beach (CSULB) y, 25 miles from Downtown Los Angeles. Surf lessons take place on Huntington Beach, the site of the world surfing championships and some the best waves you’re likely to find in North America! It comes as no surprise then that the beach is known as Surf City USA.

10 surf lessons per week!

Our partner's expert teachers will help provide students with the skills to enjoy California’s most loved sport!

18 English lessons per week!

While on the beach you’re likely to top-up your vocabulary with terms such as ‘dude’, ‘gnarly’ & ‘wipeout’, the conventional English classes will complement it with grammar, listening and speaking skills you’ll need to progress your English - and all with the instantly recognisable West Coast American accent!

Students are housed in 2 bed shared rooms in the  Cal State University Long Beach (CSULB), in safe & secure halls of residence on a full board basis, with brunch and dinner on weekends.

Activities & Excursions
As well as English and Surf lessons, you’ll also spend your afternoons and weekends heading out to experience the best that California has to offer, including Disneyland, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and much, much more!

Sports fan?
You’ll also be offered the chance to attend a Major League Baseball or NFL game!

This really is worth getting that excited about!
