Surfing at the Oregon Coast

Surfing OR Coast

This adventure includes five days of surfing and camping in Cape Lookout State Park on the northern coast. Walk along sandy beaches at sunset, gather around beach fires to relax and connect with new friends after thrilling days spent catching waves. We'll provide the wetsuits, surfboards, and instruction to go along with the Pacific Ocean's amazing scenery and great waves. There's nothing more soothing than falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves!
