Surf lessons – 5 sessions / week

Monday to Friday afternoon sessions of 1.5 hours – Exact times vary according to tide

Surf lessons take place on the famous Côte des Basques beach, located 10 minutes walking distance from the school. On this beach participants can expect a wide range of waves for all levels. On the first day, an instructor collects the students and takes them to the beach. On the following days students make their own way to the location. Subject to the weather, we may sometimes need to take the students to other beaches (in which case transport will be included).

  • Fully-qualified instructors of our partner surf school
  • Small groups of 8 students maximum
  • The sessions are held in French and are adapted to the level and requirements of participants
  • All material provided by the surf school (wetsuits and boards)
