Rowan, student

Surf Happens is one of my favorite programs because we work as a team and surf and have lots and lots of fun. At the end of Surf Happens we get to surf in a final contest where everybody is a winner and we all get trophies and we’re all happy at the end and we make lots of friends. When I’m surfing I’m motivated to keep going and when I fall down I get right back up and surf. It helps me realize that I’m a better surfer than I think and that everyone around me is also really good and you just have to keep trying. Surfing gives me lots of confidence to succeed. In my opinion, Surf Happens makes surfing easy and I recommend it. If you’re really scared to try surfing the teachers help you overcome your fears and make surfing really fun!

Santa Barbara, 3rd Year Surf Camp Scholarship Recipients 

Surf Happens is one of the best programs offered in Santa Barbara. Over the years I have seen the self confidence learning to surf has provided my son. He is more out going, more willing to try new things, and more than anything - he has developed a passion for surfing. The staff are wonderful too. I highly recommend this program!

Vaughn Family

New Jersey, 3rd Year Surf camp Scholarship Recipient

We wanted to let you know how awesome the camp was this week, for the Vaughn kids (scholarship recipients). As you know, none of the kids have ever surfed before. The first day Monday of this week, Khalid and Sadia caught on well and both caught waves and popped-up ( the new word I learned) and stood up and rode some waves!! Sadia was being cheered on by her fellow campers and had the biggest smile this summer. They were very patient and even-though some were young they were all excellent with kids.

I am so happy we got this opportunity, THANK-YOU!!!
