The children from the Community Boys and Girls Club of Wilmington are getting plenty of good tips from the instructors at Indo Jax Surf School.

“With our instructors, our expertise and the equipment that we use it’s pretty safe and pretty fool proof as far as learning to surf, and by the last day, the third day, I bet some of them will be paddling into their own waves,” said Indo Jax co-owner Jack Viorel.

Indo Jax is holding a three-day surf camp and for these boys and girls, it is their golden opportunity to learn how to hang ten.

And for the instructors, it’s a volunteer experience they won’t soon forget. “I love the sport so much and it means a lot to show these kids what surfing is all about in the ocean and being in the elements and there’s nothing else that compares to it,” said instructor Liz Hauser.

The Indo Jax surf school has a proven record of offering charity surf camps for youth in the Cape Fear region.
