WE’RE GOING CAMPING AT THE BEACH.

Can you think of anything better than a surf trip? How about a surf trip where you wake up right next to the waves, still smelling like last night’s bonfire? You know, with nothing else planned but to surf 3 sessions that day and eat too many hot dogs. Pretty cool right?
Yeah, we thought so too.

October conditions:
As an Outer Banks surfer, your favorite month is October!! Historically, it has the most waves. Water will most likely be trunks or swimwear, and at the most a spring suit, but on very rare occasions a full suit (cold front).
See you at camp!! Yeeewwwww!!

West Coast Campout: Oct 18-21

Cost: $120

Registration Deadline:  Oct 1 (but will likely fill up sooner!)
Details on Mexico, Driving, and Safety:
10-11 Drivers – Every driver will have extensive Mexico driving experience and have filled out a Christian Surfers Leadership Form as well as Mexican car insurance.
Punta Cabras is about three miles from a small fishing village and about 15 miles from the main highway. The area is safe, and we have had good experiences with past trips. There will be a certified First Aid and CPR responder on the trip. Please make us aware of any medical conditions and be prepared with your own prescriptions and needed supplies.
We will tent camp on the bluff of the north side of Punta Cabras cove. There are no noise or fire regulations, nor established bathrooms, running water, electricity, or trash services. It’s full freedom-style camping. Come ready to rough it, and remember we are packing out everything we pack in!
It is very unlikely you will have cell phone reception at Punta Cabras.

Cooking/Meal plan: We will have 4-5 designated volunteer cooks for the trip in charge of meal planning and food regulation.

Schedule:
Coffee/pastry – 6:30am
Breakfast – 10am post morning surf
Lunch – 2:00pm
Dinner – 6:00pm
Daily Devotional/Group Gathering (Mandatory) – 8:00-9:00pm

Surf:
The waves are very consistent at Cabras, usually about two feet bigger than the surrounding coast. It is not a popular camp spot because there is a more popular right point about 10 miles north where there is also bluff camping. Cabras is a beach break that has multiple sections that caters to all levels of surfing.
Essential Documents:
Valid Passport. As of January 2018, you MUST have a valid passport for re-entry into the USA.
Rules for minors: Minors must be accompanied by either a family member 21 years of age or older OR have a signed off waiver placing the responsibility of that minor to ONE Christian Surfers staff member or volunteer leader of at least 25 years of age with the proper leadership forms on record. The Christian Surfers leader will be in charge of looking after this minor the whole trip.
