Grommets’ Surf Camp

Boys-Only Weekly Surf Camps

Wrightsville Beach, NC's finest summer Surf Camp for boys ages 9-16 years old! Camp runs Monday through Friday from 8:00am-10:30am, every week of the summer! This camp is great for first time surfers all the way up to advanced surfers. Each camp has a capacity of 10 students total!

What is Grommets’ Surf Camp?

The Grommets’ Surf Camp has become a staple of beautiful Wrightsville Beach, NC’s surf community! It’s an incredibly fun summertime surf camp that fosters the true love of surfing and takes each boys’ skill set to the next level!

FYI: ‘Grommet’ or ‘Grom’ translates to something like ‘little surfer dude’ in surf slang.

Our camp’s strength is highly personalized, fun, and effective surf instruction catered to your child’s particular skill set development. Our goal is to see them showing all of the know-how of surfing safely on their own by the end of the camp! Your kids will come out of this camp absolutely stoked on surfing! But don’t take it from us, just ask around!

Our CPR and First Aid Certified instructors will be teaching your Groms to surf and/or improve their surfing the majority of each day’s 3 hrs. All while learning about safety in the sea! If the surf isn’t cooperating or the kids are getting tired, we’ll be doing some fun educational surf-related activities such as body surfing, learning how to use hand planes, riding surf mats in the shore break, as well as doing some fun relays to improve the kids’ paddling, swimming, breath holding ability and overall safety in the ocean.

We also run the Wahine Week Surf Camp for girls ages 9-16 years old 8:00-10:30am just down the beach!

These are Wrightsville Beach, NC’s finest summertime surf camps! Locally owned and operated.

Student to Instructor Ratio

Camp operates on a 2:1 ratio approximately. If the waves get a little rough, we’ll add instructors for maximum safety. If the waves are going to be very small and nearly flat, we’ll have less instructors than we would on a rough day. Safety is our #1 priority at all times.
