BACK TO THE ROOTS

find us at the beach.

At the WSMS Surf-Art-Music Camp, we aim to teach the younger generation the roots and culture behind surfing, which we believe is driven from creativity and self expression.

Alec was an awesome instructor and has clearly put in a lot of work to perfect his teaching methods. He had us shredding by the end of our first lesson!

My son did the spring break camp and not only did he have a great time, he also got up and surfed a ton! Alec and his team were wonderful teachers and so welcoming. I would highly recommend them!

It was fun watching my son out on the water with the amazing instructors. They had him catching tons of perfect waves on a beautiful day. It was a blast. I could see my son light up with joy and confidence.

WSMS is amazing at what they do! I have watched my grandchildren thrive under their instruction. Everyone at WSMS is welcoming, fun, kind and obviously in love with what they do! Tons of soul (& epic wave riding) @ WSMS.

11/10. WOW!! They are exceptional at what they do. They are intuitive to all the details that make the experience the best it can be. All of the instructors have been so great with our kids- fun, kind, flexible, outgoing, easy to talk to and knowledgable. We have been fortunate enough to have enjoyed both 1-1 lessons as well as their camps and have all positive things to say. My 6-year-old son did a one week surf camp recently and I could see a huge difference in his confidence and skill level. He told me he had "the BEST time". What a treasure WSMS is in our community. Highly recommend!

This year will be our 4th summer of participating in the WSMS Surf Art Camp. My two kids, now 12 and 9, absolutely love it! Alec and his amazing staff do a phenomenal job of organising the camp and engaging children of all levels and interests. I am so very grateful to have this gem to be a part of the St. Augustine community!

I only wish I could have given 10 stars! Alec worked with three young boys last year and this year. He was patient and yet treated the boys 9 and 12 like surfers! They all got up and had great rides. We’ll be back next year for sure! Outstanding instructor.

WHAT TO EXPECT

at the camp.

St. Augustine, FL

01.

Water Safety

Although all kids are required to know how to swim, we will do a brief water safety lesson on rip currents, waves, and spatial awareness (boards, friends, etc.). Aiming to give the kids confidence to feel as comfortable as possible before entering the water. Will touch back throughout the week if necessary.

02.

Music

Alongside a brief history of the ukulele and its relation to surfing, campers will learn the song of the week. A beginner song aimed to teach basic ukulele chords, strumming patterns, and rhythm. Ukuleles will be supplied for campers, who will split up into partners to help each other learn. Ukuleles and additional lessons available.

03.

Art

Using natural muses, we will have a project each week that will aim to teach creativity in the natural world. We aim to show campers how easy it is to make art with natural and recycled objects you can find outdoors or around your home.

04.

Surf Instruction

Beginner to advanced surf instruction! We supply 8ft soft top boards designed for beginners- equipped with a handle in the middle to make carrying easier, a soft spongy deck, and soft plastic fins- these boards are the safest and most effective way to learn. Although boards will be provided, we encourage campers to bring their own boards so they can progress on what they’ll be surfing on their own time.
