Salty Grom Surf Camp

Salty Grom Surf Camp | Huntington Beach









What sets Salty Grom Surf Camp apart is its low student to instructor ration 4:1.  Salty Grom meets at Bolsa Chica State Beach by Tower 22. Weeklong classes are held from 8:30am – 1:30pm with a Surfrider Foundation-inspired trash pick up during the lunch hour. The cost is $300/person but if you sign up at least 7 days before camp, you get a discount.

Salty Grom also has a program for kids 5-7 years old called Sprouts. While kids will also surf at times, Sprouts is mainly a beach camp, and goes at a slower pace than Salty Grom Surf Camp.

Salty Grom is sponsored by Billabong. By the way, Friday is Family Day at Salty Grom,  family members are invited to watch campers participate in a mini surf contest. Campers also receive goodie bags, hats and shirts.

  1. Don’t forget about Surf Academy! We have been with the city of Huntington Beach since 2002 and have been sharing the stoke since 1999 in the LA area as well. Beach kids programs for kids age 5-8 with a 1:4 ratio and surf camp for kids 9 & up with a 1:5 ratio. We are a women owned business that embodies the ALOHA spirit and we truly love being ambassadors of the sea.
