Billabong’s “Surf With A Pro Fantasy Camp” In El Salvador

Billabong’s “Surf With A Pro Fantasy Camp” In El Salvador

Donavon, Shane Dorian and Occy Come to Billabong’s Fantasy Surf Camp Season 3 @ Las Flores Surf Club, El Salvador

Billabong has created a unique travel experience, a fantasy surf camp at a dream pointbreak in EL Salvador, where legendary pros will surf and coach a select group of attendees on a once in a lifetime week-long trip. The opportunity will be limited to 15 surfers in each session. This year the pros will be Donavon, Shane and Occy!

Billabong Surf Camp El Salvador

The Billabong fantasy surf camps are scheduled once again at the Las Flores Surf Club in El Salvador where you can enjoy world class waves, uncrowded conditions and 4-star accommodations, resort facilities and amenities while riding with some epic waves with some of Surfing’s legendary professionals. Each week will feature Team Pros who will surf with you and the other attendees and offer hands-on coaching and instruction and video analysis of your own surfing!! The camps are geared for surfers of all ability levels who are looking to take their surfing to the next level, and the curriculum is designed for anyone from beginners to competitive amateurs.

A major part of the Billabong Fantasy Camps curriculum is the video analysis. Billabong’s staff videographers will shoot each session, and the guest pros will conduct group analysis of each videotaped session played back each afternoon and evening in the main lounge on a 42-inch plasma TV screen. All campers will receive a DVD after each trip and complimentary Billabong gear.

The camps are geared for surfers of all ability levels who are looking to take their surfing to the next level, and the curriculum is designed for anyone from beginners to competitive amateurs. The minimum age for the camps is 16 with younger campers accepted with parent or adult chaperone only. There is no target age group otherwise and adults of any age group are encouraged to attend the camps. The Billabong Go-With-A-Pro camps are a laidback, loosely structured format where you basically go on a surf trip with your favorite pros and hang out for a week in paradise. Here are some of the guys who have experienced the Billabong trip from last season:

“Always held at premier spots, Billabong’s “Surf with a Pro” is a one of a kind trip where you get to meet new friends, improve your surfing no matter what level, and best yet, share a few sessions and trade stories with some of the legends of the sport. Not to be missed. You can either surf with a pro, or stay home and watch them on video…your choice.” – Walt Brannan, avid surf trip taker from Manhattan Beach, CA

“The El Salvador 08 trip to Las Flores was the perfect trip for the “middle aged” crowd. The accommodations where 4 star, from the rooms to the employees. Not only did they call you by name, but they continued to impress by anticipating my needs. The food was excellent; with the ability to order from a menu, I never felt like I was eating cafeteria food. And the waves…WOW!! Talk about an epic right handed point break! One of my fondest memories was watching Donavon kick out of a stand-up 10 second tube, right in front of me, as I was paddling out. Even the PRO said this was one of the most epic surf trips ever. I can’t wait for the next one!” – Stan Abe from Orange County

“When do you ever get to surf all day with a pro— and rather than dropping in on you he’s giving you tips as you paddle back out? Then you spend dinner watching video clips of yourself as the pro teaches you how to improve your bottom turn….this was an amazing experience!”- Spencer Jones from New York
