A beginner's session to discover surfing

This type of session is designed for people who want to learn, but also for those who already surf and are just passing through Lacanau. The instructor begins with a short theory session, presenting the board and the ocean. Then it’s time to warm up on the sand or in the water. Then it’s off into the water, always in the company of the instructor, who uses various exercises to teach you the basics or help you progress.

The Big Découverte for surfing your first waves

This formula is often offered over two consecutive days. Following the first lesson, in which you learn the technique for standing up, the second session allows you to learn how to keep your balance on the board. For those who already practise, this package is ideal for weekends and public holidays.

The Big Mi-temps to progress and become autonomous

The 5-day course is ideal for really getting to grips with what you’ve learnt and becoming a surfer. During these 5 days, you won’t just learn the technical moves; the theory part before each surfing session will give you a better understanding of the board, with explanations of its characteristics, and of the ocean, with briefings on sandbanks, bays and currents.

Children's package to help your little ones discover surfing in complete safety

The children’s course consists of 5 sessions of 2 hours each, giving your little ones a chance to discover surfing at their own pace with the help of experienced instructors. Through playful games, they’ll learn to pick up foam and stand up on the board like grown-ups. The sessions take place in shallow water, guaranteeing children’s safety and serenity.
