We are happy to partner with Island Water Sports to offer camps & private events
Kirk Cottrell started Island Camps in 1978 with one goal. To take the surf hungry groms of the swell deprived Florida coast to find some real waves! He organized surf trips to Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, South Africa, the Bahamas and more. Creating unforgettable memories and relationships that would last a lifetime.
Decades later, Cottrell’s kids run Island Camps and are blessed to continue to share the stoke of not only surfing but skateboarding, stand up paddling and skimboarding to the South Florida area.
Our goal at Island Camps is to challenge individuals to get out of their comfort zone, face fears and have fun. Our family of accredited and professional instructors are passionate and knowledgeable about what they teach and are excited to share their experiences. Whether it’s sharing the rush that comes with catching your first wave or the feeling of flight when you drop in on a skate ramp for the first time. We live for these moments.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where do I Park?
Parking at Island Water Sports is limited to customers shopping in the store or while completing your rental paperwork. While you are using your rental and having fun on the beach, we ask that you move your vehicle out of the IWS parking lot. Parking is available at the USA Parking garage across the street or metered parking on the beach.
Surfboards come in different shapes, sizes, and specifications that improve your surfing experience. Surfboard selection should be based on your size, ability, and location and not just on looks alone. Beginners might want to start with a lightweight board with better control and maneuverability.
Experienced surfers might want a surfboard made for speed, while advanced surfers might look for boards designed for competitions and overall performance. The experts at Island Water Sports will guide you in the right direction and help pick the perfect board for you.
STAND UP PADDLEBOARDS
Stand up paddle boarding, or SUP, is a surface water sport where the paddler stands on the board and uses a paddle to move through the water. Stand Up Paddleboards are versatile and can be used for a variety of activities, from surfing to cruising the open-ocean, waterways, Intracoastal, and mangroves.
Skimboarding is a popular sport that can be done year round along the shores of South Florida, in which the boarder hydroplanes across the thin water of a receding wave. Skimboards come in all kinds of shapes and sizes like circles, ovals, teardrops, and squares. Beginners might want to start with a square shaped board that stands about mid-chest. Advanced skim boarders can attempt tricks like turns and flips when coming into contact with an incoming wave.
Bodyboarding is a great activity for all levels. Unlike surfboards, whose shape and design is complex, body boards are simple and easy to use. Body boarders easily kick their feet to propel themselves in with a wave while in a lying down position with both hands on the board.
