|** A note about the weather and waves**
Waves are not guaranteed. In fact, Brickhouse surf camp is designed around the assumption that there will not be waves on certain days each week. Students have a lot to learn both in and out of the water and their time at camp will be fun and educational regardless of weather and wave conditions.
Waves are often associated with bad weather. A day at the beach in New England often means a day at the beach in the rain. That’s what the wetsuit is for. This is the reality of New England surfing. If it is rainy and there are waves, we will be in the water all day. If it rains and there are no waves we have several rainy day itineraries that will be implemented depending on the severity of the weather.
