Playa Surfers found its home on the playa in 2006 when founder Donald Cassel claimed stake to a spot on the Esplanade that was actually part of Diva Boot Camp. The following year it became officially established on the Esplanade due to the nature of our theme which offers the experience to “surf the playa” so a “beach front” location would be moist suitable.
Today the camp has grown to over a hundred people and become a main stay theme camp at Burning Man. Besides providing great surfing we also construct a full size lifeguard tower, bring Tiki Island ,a giant mutant vehicle art car that is over 50ft wide and three levels high as well as creating an infrastructure including a TIki lounge, showers , kitchen, water and power.
We also throw an amazing sunset party. Our goal is to provide a fun camp with a laid back vibe associated with the surf culture. While laid back is our vibe, the approach is the opposite. To accomplish our contribution to Burning Man a motivated and organized effort must be taken.
This is a camp that requires participation not in the sense of singing Kumbaya but actual teams of volunteers to make all the stuff we offer happen. We need build crews, mechanics ,logistics , surf instructors, organizers, etc., along with people just willing fo contribute in some fashion. Remember Burning Man is a gifting society and this is our gift. In return, no words will justify the experience that awaits you…
