Surf camp is where people especially the beginner and advanced surfers are gathering around to learn how to be better on controlling the surfboard and getting along with the waves. Mostly, it is a course that they will be divided into classes base on their own surfing ability and level. This is also a travel inspiration. Therefore, being in a surfing course is also means that you will be served with accommodation and some are even offering you an itinerary for more longer stay (days or more).
But, no matter how good it is to be a travel idea and how beneficial it is for our health, some of us may are thinking that surf camp is not for them, you and the others. And it can also be caused by a though that telling them surfing is only for surf enthusiasts and no more than that.
Things that will help you decide whether or not a surf camp is for you
If you and the others are still confusing about being in a surf camp where your schedule for most of the day is to surfing at the beach, I am glad to help you out decided whether or not you will need this kind of travel idea. Why would I even bothering myself to do this?
As you know, most of us are trying to be the better human being just by sharing the thoughts you’ve got in mind. And even though I am not pretty sure that what I am going to tell you about the surf camp is useful, dang it, I will keep on doing this since it is come-across my mind as well.
1. For those who are working behind the desk at the office all day long, your body and mind deserve to be in a surf camp for better health condition
You’ve got another issue, you may are type of people that can’t stick to your own exercise schedules, aren’t you? Or did you really got your own exercise schedule or not? If you are not totally a person that eventually go to the gym to be fit day by day, then you will need to experience the surf camp idea especially when you are not also working out your body at the weekend.
Surf camp is a chance for your body and mind to be reseted. Right before you are touching the sea, the lessons you will get from the professional surf instructor may let you do the calisthenics and tumbling as needed to warming up yourself as well as to avoid the unwanted injury.
And right after that when you are starting surfing, your body will experience the movements from down your toes up to your head. All of your body will be moved and that will be your fun exercise even for the lazy ones.
2. You will be taught by professional coach and you won’t need any skill at all(?)
As said before that surf camp is a course, so, it is clear that there must be the professional teachers (coaches) that will help you out to start your surfing learning process. And the interesting thing that a surf camp can be the best place for that is it is not requiring you to have any skills.
Even though you are the teenagers or an adult that have no idea how to swim, surfing should not always be held at the certain deep sea. You can even start learning about boarding and how it will make you think that swimming is apparently easy and it will also an intro for you to be at the sea so you will getting used to it by the times.
I know that you will not agree with me about surfing is not allowing you to know how to swim. But, that’s the true! And there are many surf camps in this world that are admitting that you will only need to ensure yourself to be at the surf camp in the right time.
3. “But I am living away of the beach!” You said.
One of the cons about being in a surf camp is, there are also many people who are living at the higher land or the distance to the beach is far enough. If you can’t really visit the beach, then I have nothing to talk about. But, that’s what the traveling it is, it encouraging us to experience the journey.
Even though you can find the beach easier, how about there is no surf camp at all at the area. Say it would be the loneliest beach in your area and there’s nothing business potential at all for the others to rent the surf equipment or opening a surf camp class. If you will be met such condition, then I have nothing to tell you except you can always by the surf equipment online and teach yourself about surfing.
This point is also important to help you decide whether or not you are going to be in a surf camp or not since not all the beaches are possible for that.
4. How much will it cost you to be in a surf camp?
Next important thing to help you decide about the surfing trip is budgeting. And said before, many surf camps are offering their services included with the accommodation and another package like itinerary that will also let you spend the money for transport or gas, destination tickets, etc.
Some surfers are finding that accommodation can be found by yourself to get more affordable if you will really needs it, and some are don’t care about it since they may are thinking that they are affordable enough for everything. But if you are trying to find your own place to stay, ensure that the location is close enough to the beach as where the surf lessons will be started.
For a day of being in a surf camp, some surf operators are offering you to pay up to 55 €/night in Portugal or even more. But for the same country you are heading, you can also get the cheaper offer that will only cost you around, say it 399 € for a week but you have to stay in a shared room that will contain around 4 to 6 beds inside.
Each countries along with their locations have their own rate, so it is also important to decide whether or not you are going for a surf camp at another country or simply just enjoy what you have got at the beach that is close to your living place.
5. Any people with different ages are welcome. Good news for the kids up to older people
This is actually will be the last point to help you decided if you will really need to be in a surf camp or not. If you think that you are too old to learn surf, believe me that there may also the kids are thinking that they are too young to start experiencing it. Meaning that you don’t need to create uncertain things in your mind about surfing itself.
Surf camp itself is truly for everyone and while you are realising that, there were even the dogs surf competitions that held before. It is truly an trip, an exercise as well as the sport for human and animals. So, thinking hard about your age won’t be necessary to do.
So, are you ready to gives it a shot? Who would have guessed that it can be your own favourite and positively an unforgettable travel idea for a lifetime!?
