Surfing is more than fun; it also offers great health benefits for kids

Learn to surf at surf camp
Surf camps are growing in popularity each year. Kids love to surf, or if they don't they want to learn how. But here's an often overlooked benefit to the surf camp experience: It offers fantastic health benefits for kids offering a total body workout from cardiovascular exercise to arm and leg strength to helping increase balance and more.

Here's how it works. When kids paddle out on their surfboards toward the ocean to catch a wave, where develop upper-body strength (including their arms and shoulders). And they're simultaneously getting a cardiovascular workout. Then, when they're actually surfing, they're using leg muscles and developing important balance skills.

There are several sites on the internet to find a surf camp. You can do a general search for "kids surf camps" on Google, or you can visit a site-specific search engine where you'll find many available surf camps for kids and teens everywhere in the United States and abroad. (You might type "surf camp directory" into Google and see what comes up.)

It doesn't matter if your child is a beginning surfer or experienced and learning to pick up tips from a pro, there's a safe and fun surf camp out there for you...and the amazing health benefits can't be denied.
