Richard, Marisa, and Richie,
I just wanted to drop off a quick line to say thank you for a truly wonderful week. It is really difficult to put into words how a few short days spent with you all surfing and camping made such a huge difference in my life. This past year I’ve taken a lot of time to do a really good gut check and a lot of soul searching — a lot of the answers I’ve found fit into what was accomplished at your camp. You all have something very special that you share so willingly – thank you. Please pass along my thanks to Sonia, Joey, Pam, and everyone that I’m leaving out – they really went above and beyond.
Thanks again – hope to see you on the waves again sometime soon!

Richard, Marisa, and staff,
I just wanted to drop a quick line to say that I enjoyed the week with all of you tremendously. The pace, food, surfing, and especially all of the people, both staff and campers were great. Please thank everyone, Pam, Tori, Mark, and everyone else. I definitely want to do this again next year.
Thanks again,

I had a great time at camp. It was one of my best vacations ever.

Hi Richard,
I wanted to thank you and Marisa for an absolutely incredible week at surf camp. Honestly, hardly a day goes by that I don’t at least flash on time in the water down in Santa Cruz and smile. I learned so much, increased my level of confidence in the water, and met some truly great people. You, Tori and the rest of the instructors are fantastic. (The food was pretty great, too!)

My daughters, Kimberly(15) and Lauren Jordan(17), attended your week camp this past summer, and had a tremendous time! I can’t remember the last time they were so enthusiastic about every aspect of any sports camp. (The food, the company, the instruction, etc..) They have since practiced whenever they can and would like to return to learn more next year.
Thank you very much,
