Quick to Dry Daily Wears

You will be in contact with water a lot, and you’ll want to wear something that’s quick to dry when hung. At least 50% of your t-shirts and leggings should be made from quick-to-dry materials. 

Eco-Friendly Sunscreen

Aspire to be an eco-conscious surfer from young age. Reef bleaching is real! Know the damage of sunscreen residue to our beloved reefs. Choose only reef-safe sunscreen made from natural and organic products. Do your best to not harm the earth while having fun in teen surf camp! 

Water Bottles

Between all the shining sun and salty sea water, you can be dehydrated pretty quickly. Bring your own water flask everywhere you go. It’s a good idea to pack a hydroflask that would keep your water cold amidst the hot, humid weather. 

Beach Coverup

When you are not spending your time in the waves, cover yourself with beach-coverup to prevent severe sunburn. Choose one that dries super fast and looking stylish!

Dressy Clothes for Events in Teen Surf Camp

Many surfer camps for teens arrange a get-together night and shopping day between surfing classes. Water something other than bikinis and short this time. Flannel shirts, jeans, dresses, and skirts are good ideas! It can get chilly at night sometimes, so you might want to bring some sweatshirt or hoodie with you.
