We’ll have the following activities, depending on conditions;

  • Tandem surfing
  • Body-boarding
  • Stand up paddling (SUP)
  • Kayaking
  • Beach obstacle course
  • Fun beach games

We provide all the gear needed for a fun safe day at the beach. You only need to bring your personal items, such as a towel, change of clothes, etc. At the end of the day, we provide a hot lunch for our participants and volunteers. Finally, we wrap up the day with our award ceremony, a fun-filled celebration of success where each participant receives a Best Day team surfer medal and goodie bag.
