Introducing wakesurfing this fall!



We are excited to announce that we are now offering ENS 138 Wakesurfing as a college credit class starting this fall! Wakesurfing is a watersport that has risen in popularity as of recent years, and offers a unique, fun way to ride a boat’s wake, aka the perfect endless wave. Our new boats include the Nautique Surf System (NSS) where with a push of a button transforms the wake into a carvable face, giving the rider the ability to surf behind the boat without a rope.


While SDSU and USD students can receive academic credit for wakesurfing class, these classes are also available to the public. Our wakesurfing ENS class takes place once a week on Mission Bay and is a great opportunity to help you learn and master wakesurfing. There will be classes offered Tuesday through Friday from 2pm to 3:40pm, starting in late August.

Learn to surf in our 2-day surf class



Now that the sun has decided to show up this summer in San Diego there has never been a better time to learn to surf. This month our featured class is our Two Session Surfing class. This class meets on a Saturday AND Sunday providing you with enough instruction over the weekend to feel confident practicing on your own after the class. On Saturday your class will begin with classroom instruction providing you with safety information and proper etiquette while out in the lineup followed by on-the-water instruction on proper paddling technique.  Paddling is very important, as many surfers will tell you surfing is 80% paddling and 20% riding a wave. Next, you will work on your pop up on the beach, before charging the waves with an instructor there to assist in riding your first wave.

After all the fun and excitement on Saturday you will be able to come back on Sunday and continue practicing catching and riding waves which makes this 2-day class perfect for those looking for a successful surfing session.

Don't let this sunny summer pass you by without getting out there in the water and learning to surf.

Check out the schedule of upcoming classes on the surfing class page on our website.

TRS Camp at the Bay provides access to watersports for persons with disabilities




Our mission statement at Mission Bay Aquatic Center includes ensuring a safe, enjoyable watersports experience for all who wish to participate. We were ecstatic and appreciative to once again be able to partner with the City of San Diego Therapeutic Recreation Services (TRS) to host a week-long “Camp at the Bay” event ensuring that watersports are accessible to persons with disabilities.



The event, held in July, hosted over 125 participants with a wide range of disabilities and offered accessible waterskiing, jet skiing, sailing, and kayaking, as well as other land activities such as frisbee golf and cycling.  The participants had a blast and we heard many stories of how this event is a highlight of the summer season for many who may not otherwise have access to these activities. It’s a rewarding experience for staff and participants alike, to enjoy a beautiful week on the water enjoying watersports.



Thank you to the TRS staff and volunteers, Kawasaki USA, the Torrey Pines Kiwanis, and all who contributed to make the event a huge success.  We hope to see returners and new participants next year!

New to The Watersports Camp? Top Five Things to Know.



We here at Mission Bay Aquatic Center want every camper to be prepared to have a great time at The Watersports Camp, so we’ve compiled the top five things to know for new attendees:

Sunscreen is an important part of camp!
  1. Be ready for FUN! With the wide array of programs offered, campers will find a sport they’ll love and our staff’s expertise and great attitudes guarantee the maximum amount of fun time packed into each day. 
  2. Bring sunscreen--and lots of it! San Diego summers include plenty of sunshine, so make sure your camper stays protected from the UV rays.  We will be stopping to reapply throughout the day so be sure you bring ample sunscreen to apply multiple times. 
  3. Our morning camp offers instructional lessons to practice throughout the week. This allows them to build confidence and learn new techniques in the watersport that they choose when registering.
  4. Our afternoon multisport camp is designed to squeeze in the most fun, where we allow every camper to try out a different watersport each day! This provides an awesome scope of all the programs we offer and every day is a unique experience. Full-day campers can add the afternoon multisport camp to their morning instructional session for a jam packed week of watersport fun.
  5. Your camper is in good hands! We pride ourselves on providing a wonderful and safe watersports camp experience with our fully equipped, experienced instructors and camp counselors. Every staff member is certified in Red Cross CPR, First Aid, and Lifeguarding, and employs a “Safety First” approach to fun. 

We are excited to see you at The Watersports Camp and encourage your camper to come prepared and ready to have FUN!

Camp is More Fun with a Friend!



Camp experiences are especially unique when shared with friends! Your camper will gain long-lasting memories if they share The Watersports Camp experience with their friends.  They will create the ultimate summer memories to enjoy and reflect on as they share it together. Moreover, our afternoon multisport camp groups are organized by age so campers will be able to experience this fun camp session with their peers.

If you sign up with a friend and will be attending the multisport camp, be sure to let us know at check in so we can be sure you get placed in the same afternoon group.

We want your camper to have a memorable and amazing water-filled week to remember for years to come! What better way to do that than with a friend?
