SandBar Surf Co. + Billabong Surf Camps

May 31, 2011
– (Central Coast, CA) Whether you've always wanted to try your luck at catching waves or you're the Big Kahuna, Pismo Lighthouse Suites has got you covered this summer.

Partnering with the SandBar Surf Company in Pismo Beach, Pismo Lighthouse Suites is offering an all-inclusive "Midweek Billabong Surf Camp Package" – a four-night package that includes a three-day Billabong Surf Camp for two and a luxurious two-room suite.

"The Billabong Surf Camp package is a wonderful way to introduce new and beginning surfers of all ages to the sport of surfing," says Erik Mund, General Manager of Pismo Lighthouse Suites. "The package is a perfect complement to the classic California town of Pismo Beach that practically lives and breathes surfing. I can't think of a better opportunity for our guests to get introduced to the core of what Pismo Beach represents to so many people."

The package, which is available now through August 28, 2011, kicks off with a relaxed Sunday check-in so you can rest up for the week ahead. Choose from either an Oceanfront Suite which features a spacious bedroom, with either a King bed or two Queen beds, living room with a Queen size sofa sleeper, and 2 full bathrooms. Alternatively, the two-room Family Suite offers the convenience of two separate sleeping rooms with private bathrooms.
Each morning, get energized for a day on the waves with Pismo Lighthouse Suites' expanded deluxe continental breakfast overlooking the mighty Pacific Ocean. Then hit the beach at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. or 4 p.m., for a two-hour Billabong surf lesson with an experienced surf instructor in a small group setting. Surfboards, wetsuits and rash guards are provided. The camp also provides two stainless steel water bottles and sunscreen for you to keep, and a souvenir T-shirt from the Billabong Surf Camp to elicit envious whimpers from your friends back home!

If you have the energy to explore during your off-time, there's plenty to entice you away from the beach. When you're not enjoying Pismo Beach's world-renowned surf:
· Take in the classic California vibe of the Pismo Beach pier and seaside shops.
· Put the car's top down and drive just ten minutes through charming countryside to reach Edna Valley, where award-winning wineries open their doors to visitors year-round for tasting.
· Enjoy culinary bliss at any one of Pismo Beach's top-notch restaurants, where chefs source fresh, colorful ingredients from nearby farms, and don't miss the world famous clam chowder.
· Burn calories in the open air with a hike across the Pismo Beach Dunes, a bicycle ride into gorgeous Price Canyon, or kayak around the tidepools in nearby Shell Beach.

Of course, if you prefer to stay in and wind down, you can arrange for an in-room massage or treat yourself to a full service treatment with Spa Central Coast Avila Beach at the sister hotel, Avila Lighthouse Suites.

The Billabong Surf Camp Package is perfect for the whole family. Two members can partake in the surf lessons while other family members enjoy other activities and attractions. Pismo Lighthouse Suites hotel's amazing activity-filled family play deck including a life-size chess and checkers board, multiple ping pong tables, badminton court, putting greens as well as an oceanfront heated pool and spa ensures laid-back fun for all. And Pismo Lighthouse Suites' accommodations are ideally designed for mom and dad to enjoy alone time in their own half of the suite or on the balcony at night after the kids hit the hay.
