Parents often ask us what is the best age to start their child in swimming & surfing? The simple answer is to get your child in the water sooner then later. We find that our strongest and most confident swimmers and surfers often start their aquatic experience at a younger age. Ages for swimming begin as early as 6 months. The goal for infant aquatics is to make sure that infants can turn on their backs while in the water. This is extremely important and can save their lives. We suggest surfing with your child one on one as early as 5 years old. Leading up to their surfing we suggest having the children as much as possible in the pool and around the ocean with parental supervision at all times. It is extremely important to have your child familiar with the water as well as a deep understanding and respect for it. The water is a great place but it can also be very dangerous & is extremely important for children to be confident in and around the water especially living in a coastal community. All of our programs are tailored towards safety and creating strong swimmers and surfers. For more information please contact us today!!
