Surf into Summer with Hang Loose Surf School

by Chris J Rosser
Summer can be a very depressing time for surf.  The waves get smaller, and the stoke factor is going down.  It’s time to fight the good fight, and get that stoke back.  That’s where Hang Loose Surf School comes in Hang Loose has been sharing the surfing experience for over 12 years in South Florida, and they offer day camps for all ages and overnight camps in Melbourne for riders 7-16 during the summer.  These camps will get you psyched no matter what level you are at, and all the knowledge of the instructors will help you to raise your game. The camps feature surfing, skimming, stand-up paddleboarding, snorkeling, beach games, ocean safety, and lots and lots of fun.  They are also part of Billabong Camps so you know you’re getting a quality experience. Hang Loose provides surfboards and instruction, so even if you’ve never touched a board they’ll get you up and riding.  The instructors can also help you advance your skills so more experienced riders can get some personal coaching.  The day camps are located on Fort Lauderdale beach and run from 9:00AM to 2:30PM.  The overnight camps are based in Melbourne about a block away from the beach.  Melbourne has a good variety of waves and a large swell window to keep the action coming.  While in the Melbourne area campers have the opportunity visit a few of the local surfboard shapers to see how boards are made.  The sleep away camps in Melbourne also have an extra dash of awesome as they go to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon for a private shred fest at the wave pool.  Oh, and if you’ve been there before and are worried that the waves aren’t that great, have no fears.  They turn on the extra power for the camps.  Check out yours truly taking on the left break below.

And for a pulled back perspective, here’s instructor TJ Ralph laying it down on a longboard.

Dutch Schorn is the owner/operator of Hang Loose Surf School and has been surfing for over 25 years, and teaching for the past 12.  Get the stoke back in your summer and head over to Hang Loose Surf School’s site,  or their Facebook, for complete info on their camps.
