Surf camps are one of the most fun ways to travel cheap, learn to surf and meet like-minded people! They usually offer shared accommodations and facilities, and have activities for everyone from beginner surfers to experienced ones. You’ll find surf camps all over the world with different levels of surf classes and social vibes ranging from super relaxed and quiet to full on party mode!
There are surf camps for all tastes, with not only surf classes, but also yoga classes, skateboarding or even language classes. The activities will depend on the host and country. Go to Costa Rica and Nicaragua if you wanna find the best surf camps in Central America! Miramar Surf Camp,
in Nicaragua, is an example of a great host, which offers restaurant, oceanside pool, terraces to enjoy the breathtaking ocean view relaxing on a hammock and last but not least: a skate park! Other great countries for surfing are Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Australia, Indonesia and South Africa.
To surf and volunteer in the locations we mentioned, or any other country for that matter, you don’t need to be a surf instructor! Of course you can teach people how to surf if you have that skill, but volunteering in a surf camp is also about creating a nice environment for everyone, so you can work in the kitchen, give dance or yoga classes, help with cleaning or even do creative work like taking photos or blogging! Travel cheap to surf camps all around the world by helping the best way you can.
Exchanging work for accommodation is a great way to travel cheap to surf camps. At Worldpackers you’ll find a host list with places to surf and work in many countries. No need to be an experienced surfer, you can be a beginner surfer and still volunteer in a surf camp. Learn to surf in the best beaches of Europe, like Cascais and Costa da Caparica in Portugal, or Somo and Fuerteventura in Spain!
