Houston Bodyboarding Camps changed my life. I had high expectations after signing up 2 weeks before the camp was to begin and every expectation was met and exceeded.

Jared and his family are some of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Their home and property in Puerto Rico is mystical. The vibe nourishes your body and minds need for nature. I found myself constantly receiving a calming sense of peace. I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable. After a long day of surfing, stretching and eating delicious meals, the Airbnb apartment behind their house, El Cucubano, was the perfect place to come home to.

I had several goals during my trip that Jared worked with me on daily, but probably the biggest goal of the trip was to learn more about competing professionally. Not only did I learn just about everything I needed to know, but Jared helped me gain the confidence I needed to commit to taking action towards making some of the biggest decisions of my life. He encouraged me in ways that I truly needed to take the next step mentally. Sure enough, after my time with Jared at Houston Bodyboarding Camps, I went on to compete in the 2019 Mike Stewart Pipeline Invitational Trials event. I ended up making it into the main event by ironically beating some of the guys that I consider to be the best from Puerto Rico. Without Jared’s camp and confidence in me, none of that would have been possible. Now I’m more motivated than ever and only just getting started in the sport that I’ve loved for almost all my life.

I recommend this camp for anyone who is interested in getting excellent advice on how to improve their bodyboarding skills or anyone who is just in love with the sport of bodyboarding.

Hustonbodyboardingcamp has been one of the best experiences in my life, 1000% recommended. It was super affordable and a true bargain. Being able to stay 7 days in Puerto Rico and eat the best healthy food out there was really fulfilling. Jared and his family took great care to make me feel welcome and part of the family. The housing was very comfortable and nice. Amazing coaching from the world’s champion. He is very detailed and attentive to whatever you want to improve or learn. Jared was there all the time, teaching not only techniques but a true experience and life style. My barrel riding, trick techniques, and reading the waves all improved over the week. I also felt more inspired to surf at a high level for as long as I can. All the locals are very nice and welcoming. This trip has also a cultural. You will see the most beautiful places, sunsets, beaches and caves in PR. If you have any thoughts of doing this camp don’t hesitate, just do it! You will thank me later. I can’t wait to come back and share waves with everyone again. I can’t thank my new friend Jared enough for such a great experience and for taking my bodyboarding to the next level!
