SUMMER CAMPS SURF CAMP N othing more fun than learning to surf! And with so many lo- cal camps to choose from, two words of advice. First, every camper has to learn the basics of getting into the wa- ter, judging a wave, catching it and stand- ing up. You need at least three days to do all that so be sure to sign-up for a week’s instruction. Second, make sure your camp is fully certified, licensed and insured. Here are two of the best in both phases. Celebrating its 18th season Montauk’s AIR AND SPEED SURF CAMP 631-668- 0356 was the first camp on the East End to teach little grommets the basics of catching a wave. Held weekly at Ditch Plains boys and girls eight and up learn proper respect for the ocean, basic surf- ing skills and water safety. Weekly ses- sions run July through August. Small classes ensure a meaningful experience but also limit membership so call today to reserve your slot. FLYING POINT SURF SCHOOL 516- 885-6607 offers weekly sessions from mid-June through the end of August. With small classes that afford plenty of hands on instruction their record of suc- cess is equal to any. Have a youngster who wants to expand his repertoire to include the ever-poplar stand-up surfing? Bring ’em down to the beach and before you know it they’ll be running downhill with a 6’ graphite paddle in their arms. A Club For Everyone 27TENNIS is open to the public offering ten- nis for the whole family at the most affordable rates in the Hamptons. We are located across the street from the Sea Crest Resort (on the site formerly known as Napeague Tennis Club) with beach access, so bring your swimsuit to jump in the ocean after tennis!
