Our Surf School is now running surf camps and teaching surfing lessons in Cocoa Beach, Florida. From beginner to advanced, we have professional, CPR certified instructors which are there to ensure your fun and safety during the class. Cocoa Beach Florida is well known for surfing, and offers us an ideal location to run our surf camps and teach private surfing lessons. There is a variety of other surf camps being run in the county, some of which are at breaks that are not the best for giving surfing lessons. Cocoa Beach Florida has long been considered one of the best areas in the world to go in and catch your first waves.Whether you have never touched a surfboard before or ready to move to the Nex level, Nex Generation Surf School will take you there. Longboard or shortboard, we have the instructor for you! We will have you in the water and surfing on your very first day at camp or lesson. All of our surf camps have safe soft surfboards which make our camp as safe as it can get. For the more advanced surfers, you can supply your own boards if you wish to. No matter what, just make sure you get out there and have a good time.NexGen's summer surf camps are going to be run directly from our shop in Cocoa Beach, FL. We can help arrange stay at the hotel and include the surf camp as the perfect learning vacation. At surf camp, you learn to ride the waves and experience the healthy, exciting sport of surfing first hand. After each morning camp, private lessons are also available. All surf camps have a low student to instructor ratio and are staffed with accomplished surfers who are knowledgeable of the ocean and the environment. In Cocoa Beach you can lean to surf while taking advantage of Florida's warm water and pleasant weather

Barry and Al are awesome! Spent 5 days in surf camp and loved it so much came back for 2 more! They have completely different teaching styles and it was great to bounce between the two of them.

We brought 4 16-year old girls to Barry and Otto for a 3 hour lesson. Surf was pretty rough that day, and I watched the whole time. Not only were the girls very closely watched and taken care of, but they were all up and surfing within the first hour and had a BLAST! Thank you for making the start... More

Barry was a fantastic instructor. My 11 year old son had an excellent time with him. He made it fun and came in on his day off to give my son a lesson. We will be there every time we visit Florida!

Our three teenage boys had a great time during their spring break vacation. We booked a one hour private surf lesson that they did together. Great instructor - they were up and surfing in no time. They are hooked for life! Thank you for a great vacation experience.

We took took our granddaughter who is 8. She can swim but has only been to the ocean twice. She was a little scared but they made her her feel comfortable. They are very good at teaching and working with kids. Very well worth the money.

We signed our 9 year old daughter up for a surf lesson with Bryan. This was only the 2nd time she had ever had a lesson. Bryan was great with her. He didn't take her in the water without first discussing water safety which I thought was great. The waves were really rough, but he encouraged her to keep trying... More

My husband and I took our first ever surf lessons with Nex Gen and it was the BEST experience! Brian and Barry are best instructors ever. They are so laid back, but obviously passionate about surfing and teaching. They are encouraging, and were genuinely excited for us when we stood up. Speaking of standing up - I was shocked that...
