The Eternal Summer Surf Camp is back on Anna Maria Island for their fourth year in a row. The Eternal Summer Surf Camp has been teaching children to surf on White Avenue every Sunday from 2pm – 4pm since the weekend of July 4th and will continue until the end of August.
Anna Maria Island has become the hub of children surfing education every year from July 4th for 8 weeks. Almost 200 children sign up for the eight week 2 hour instructional class every Sunday. The Surf Camp takes place just off White Avenue on Anna Maria Island. The surf camp is not-for-profit and is the Eternal Summer Surf Camp. Visit their website for more information. If you are wondering if the experience is worth it for your children and yourself then just click on the video below. Be careful, if you watch this video more than 20 seconds your going to get inspired to come visit Anna Maria Island. The video was done by Ryan Bodie Films and he has done an unbelievable job at capturing the spirit of the camp. Sorry parents, the Anna Maria Summer surfing camp is for children 14 or under but maybe if you are good to your children they will teach you to surf during the week when school is out!
I would love for everyone to think I am a cool surfer dude and all this advanced information came from my vast knowledge of surfing. Unfortunately, I have to give credit to a surfer web site that gives more details on the characteristics of surfing just off White avenue in Anna Maria City. WannaSurf.com…yup, the surfing on Anna Maria is a big enough deal to get discussed on surfing websites. The website discusses surf and wave quality, tide, swell and wind characteristics, as well as any dangers. The web site tells you the name of the contributor as well as (4) other individuals that added information and actually surfed Anna Maria Island. Take a look, if this website does not give you the information needed, then you will just have to come to the island to experience it yourself… Also, if you are looking to get your children involved then visit our Anna Maria Island Children surfing camp. Do yourself and check out the video as well!
