Here's Where We're At for Camp! (Tower 41)
Why Surf Camp LA at Badass Surf School?
BASS Founder Jake McNulty is a surf therapist and coach with years of surfing lessons experience with organizations like A Walk On Water, Life Rolls On, THERAsurf, and The Jimmy Miller Foundation.
This surf camp is specifically tailored around how these organizations operate, which first and foremost means developing personal relationships with surfers: discovering their abilities, learning their inhibitions, and finding THEIR way to coaching a fun, unique surf style.
Whether your child has unique needs, is new to surfing, or straight up wants to learn how to rip, our surf camp in Los Angeles has a proper place just for your surfer at LA beaches like Santa Monica, Venice, Dockweiler, and Manhattan Beach in 2023.
Our reputation over these last few years has lead us to special approval from the city to finally start our surf camp this summer! Each and every instructor hired is certified by the ISA, LACO Lifeguards, or another similarly respected organization to make sure your child is not only safe, but learning how to grow into a real, talented surfer.

Some additional helpful bites about how we run BASS Surf Camp that might help you choose us this summer.
We have mastered the art of teaching surf students how to read and predict waves. The same will go for surfers at our surf camp!
Our surf camp will provide meaningful things outside of surfing: resiliency, creativity, communication skills, friendships, role models, environmental consciousness, and more.
Professional photography + videography are taken frequently, so you're bound to get some goodies.
Healthy and nutritious snacks provided at our surf camp throughout the day, every day. And at Dockweiler Beach, we can grill in the fire pits!
We love our beaches! So to show that, unlike most others, our surf camp will use no single use plastic. Ever.
Included & Customized Gear
Surfboards, wetties, rashguards, leashes provided. The only surf school to custom-shape our boards!

All staff CPR + first-aid. Our #1 job? To keep you safe! We also never operate without liability insurance.
Ocean & Climate Conscious
Our camp goers are educated while the fun goes on with guest speakers, daily lesson plans, etc.
3:1 Surfer-Instructor Ratios
We use as many instructors as necessary, sometimes even 1:1 or 2:1.
Lifeguards Always on Duty
We know the LACO guards personally, and we never teach without them on site.
We offer half-day, full day, weekly, and a number of other packages that fit your busy schedule.

We are a permitted surf school; All surf camp prices include required fees and surcharges we pay to the city of Los Angeles as per our 2023 summer camp use permit. Quality snacks daily, and lunches on the days we provide, are also included.
You may purchase any number of days/weeks for any number of surfers; here we list discounted rates per day/week.
If you'd like to purchase 3 half-days, for example, your total would be 3x a single half-day for $384. The fourth half-day would only be $116 more.

Optional Transportation Schedule & How it Works
For our surf camp in Dockweiler Beach (Tower 41). FULL WEEKS ONLY
This is something we are working on and TBD for the summer. If transportation a must for you to book, call and let us know and we will notate and work it out for you.
We know and understand how much of a commitment it is for surf camp in Los Angeles, especially for Santa Monica, Venice, or Manhattan Beach. Driving, waiting in traffic, dropping off, and picking up your child from surf camp or day camp every single day? That's a hassle. So to make your life easier, we are operating a pickup system this Surf Camp LA summer for you and your young grom!
Surf Camp pickups are based around the Santa Monica, Venice, Dockweiler, & Manhattan Beach areas.
1. Book your surf camp spot and number of weeks! Either online or over the phone.
2. If you book your surf camp spot over the phone, we will collect some info from you, such as your selected surf camp dates to participate, address to base your nearby pickup spot on, and more. If you book your surf camp spot online, someone will contact you shortly to collect that info.
3. You will be given a morning pickup time (around 8 or 8:30am) and location (nearby approved school) respective to YOU, prior to each surf camp day, with sufficient notice. Your scheduled times and location will always be close and convenient for everyone signed up for that day of surf camp. For example, if you live in Venice or Santa Monica, your drop-off/pickup location will never be closer to Manhattan Beach.
On Your Selected Dates
4. Follow your given directions for drop-off before our surf camp day starts, and pickup after our surf camp day ends. Our surf camp will run from around 9:30am til about 2:30pm, so our pickup is at about 8-8:30am, and our drop-off is around 3-3:30pm.
5. You will be notified prior to our drop-off that we are on the way!
This is about as easy and convenient as it gets for getting your child involved in a surf camp. You save countless hours and avoid beach traffic, while your young surfers develop extra camaraderie with surf instructors & with one another.
