Learn to surf with patient instructors, or tour the best breaks with local guides. Both options are included in the camp price! Join us and our hosts for a laid back surf town getaway. Enjoy 85 degree water, 85 degree air, and a local vibe that’s like Hawaii before the crowds arrived. Surf, snorkel, stand-up paddle, hike, or just relax on the beach! This camp is limited to 10 spots!

Getting To Panama

Day 1: At Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport, you’ll jump the Riande Hotel 24-hr transportation.

Day 2: After breakfast, relax in your private shuttle to Paradise! Arrive at Beach Break Surf Camp around 2pm, just in time for an afternoon surf session. Playa Venao is a crescent shaped beach break with several different breaks for all levels of experience. If you don’t care to lug your own board down here, no worries, Beach Break has a nice quiver of boards for you to choose from. Unlimited surf board rentals, surf photography, surf lessons or surf tour guidance and breakfasts are all included. Top the night off with a welcome dinner at Beach Break’s restaurant, Pizza Gavilan.

Day 3: Coffee, breakfast, and a morning surf session (in no particular order) is followed by a mid morning Surf Fitness Class lead by John Boyle, Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, retired pro MMA fighter, and lifelong surfer. The routine will be focused on movements that can be applied to your surfing and will give you the tools to continue strengthening and maintain a routine when you get back home.

Day 4: Another day in the life! Today we’ve set you up with an adventure that few get to experience – a “secret spot” near Playa Venao. The trip will include your transport, boards, sandwiches, snacks, water, and guide. This is what traveling and surfing is all about: the search for an unforgettable experience that will leave you buzzing!

Day 5: And yes, another day of the surfing life…the adventure is up to you!

Day 6: Enjoy a day with no set plans. We can set you up with fishing trips, snorkeling, kayak mangrove tours, waterfall hikes, and more. Or… take an extra nap and surf session, read a book and relax, you’re in Playa Venao.

Day 7: You’ve fallen into a routine at this point, and that’s not a bad thing! Are you ready to tackle a more challenging break? Prefer to take it easy on the low rollers and a long board? Or is it time for a waterfall hike, a snorkel session, and a rum drink or two?

Day 8: Enjoy your last full day at the beach to the fullest. Your last night at the beach will be celebrated with a bonfire and BBQ with the whole Beach Break staff to say thank you. We hope at this point you’ve made some friends and had some experiences you won’t soon forget.

Day 9: Sneak in one last surf session in the morning before your private transportation back to Panama City leaves around 9am. By the time you get back to your home you’ll have a email from us with pictures to remember your adventure. You’ll hate to go, but we’ll shuttle you back to Panama City to continue your journey home.
