Pink Pineapple Surf x Skate Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to Bring?
The only thing you need to bring to surf camp or a private lesson is a bathing suit, towel, water and a light snack. We provide everything you need to learn how to surf which includes surfboards, leashes, wetsuits, rashguards and sunscreen.
What is the age limit for surf camp?
The age limit for surf camp is 7-18 years old. If you are younger then 7 or older then 18 we recommend a private lesson.
Can I sign up for just 1 day of surf camp or do I need to sign up for the week?
You can sign up for surf camp daily and or pick random inconsecutive days you would like throughout the Summer. You are more then welcome to sign up for the whole week.
Do you give skate lessons?
We currently do not give skate lessons. We have skate sessions that are strictly for girls every Thursday from 4-8pm at the Pro Skateboard Shop Ramp in Belmar. The skate sessions are to empower the girls and give them an atmosphere that they can feel comfortable learning in. We can recommend you to local people for skate lessons.
Do I need to buy a beach badge?
If you are under the age of 14 you do not need a beach badge. Anyone over the age of 14 is required to buy a beach badge.
What happens if it rains?
We cannot emphasize enough the we are not the "Weather Women". If we need to cancel camp/private lessons/ birthday parties due to rain, lightning or rough surf we will give you at least an hour notice before the start time and reschedule you for another day.
What if it rains or lightning strikes while I am at camp?
If lightning strikes we are by law forced to leave the beach for 30 minutes before we are let back on by the lifeguards. We will head under the pavilion for safety. If we finish more then half of the day then we will not reschdule for another day. That will count as a full day. If we have not finished half of the day then we will reschdule you for another day. If it rains during your lesson but there is no lightning the lessons will go on! Some of our best lessons have been in the rain! If we have to cancel camp due to the weather we will give your emergency contact a call right away.
Can I bring my own surfboard or wetsuit?
Yes!! Feel free to bring your own surfboard or wetsuit.
What is your cancelation policy?
We understand that "Life" happens. We also are a small boutique surf camp with limited spots. If you need to cancel you must cancel within 15 hours of your lesson. That means if your lesson starts at 9am you must cancel by 6pm the night before. If you cancel anytime after that we will only be able to refund you 50% of your total cost for that day. If you are a no show then we will not be able to give you a refund. No exceptions. Thank you for understanding.
What is the instructor to student ratio for surf camp?
The instructor to student ratio is 2:1.
How do I use private lesson or surf camp packages?
Buying a package allows you to book multiple days. You will be sent a unique code in your email that you will be able to use each time you checkout. The surf camp packages are discounted. The private lesson packages are not discounted. Please email us if you need further help.
What if the waves are too big?
Safety is our number one priority . If the waves are too big or rough and you do not want to surf for that reason, please let an instructor know and we will reschedule you for a day with smaller waves. If we predict a large swell, and are able to let you know ahead of time, we will do our best to do so. If that is not possible, and we decide to cancel the day of your lesson we will give you a call as soon as we have made our decision and give you a call to reschedule.
What if the waves are too small?
Unfortunately, we are not the weather woman! We would love to be able to control the ocean so that when you are with us you always have ideal conditions. However, that is not possible. If the ocean is flat or waves are very small, we will have paddle drills, contests and other in water activities as long as possible. Swimming and paddling are fundamental aspects of surfing and will only make you a better surfer and more comfortable in the ocean. If you would like to know the surfing conditions prior to signing up, you can always reach out to us 15 hours prior to the start and we will share the forecast with you so you can decide in advance to change the day you join us. We will not reimburse for small days. It is up to you to reach out 15 hours before hand.
