What you'll do

Having the right equipment is a big part of success. The surf board must be suited to your height and weight and to your ability. We provide wetsuits that are specifically suited for men, women and children, and that are adapted to the season. Spring suits (3/2), summer suits (2/2) and winter suits (4/3).

Every surf lesson is 2hours.
Introduction to the elements: the waves, the currents, the sand banks and deep water troughs. And most importantly the rules of safety.
-Introduction to the equipment.
-Warm up and stretch on the beach.
-Warm up in the water
Finding your balance on the surfboard in a lying position: on the beach then in the water. The aim is to catch a white water wave or broken wave whilst lying on the surf board. This will allow you to become accustomed to the handling of the equipment in the ocean, the correct positioning and the general process of catching a wave before taking it any further. When you nose dive and you will nose dive you are understanding the importance of weight distribution on the board and it’s effects.
-Now back on the beach we learn how to pop up on the board. This is where the real challenge begins..
The aim of the lesson is be able to stand on a surf board whilst riding the white water towards the beach. The key to success is to put you feet in the right place on the board in order to keep your balance.
-Debriefing
Other things to note
Access to the toilet, shower, changing booths (heated in the winter) and a place to store your personal affairs in safety.

Where you'll be

Surfing in Les Landes beaches is a unique experience, the nature and the strength of the elements make us feel in total osmosis with our mother earth. To get drunk with marine odors, to feel the warm sand under your feet, to cross and to smell the Landes forest are all sensations that make this magical place a timeless place.

Our two 11 year old boys were super keen to learn the basics of surfing, after already spending time on SUP paddleboards on the Lot river. They felt straight at home in the small group, despite being the youngest and the instructor took plenty of time with each of them in the water and back on the shoreline explaining how to improve their technique. The result? Lots of fairly long rides in the whitewater, and smiles aplenty; they had a great time and the younger family members are now asking to do the same surf training!
