Activity description

Come and learn how to surf in Hendaye with a team of good and experienced instructors. All the instructors of Gold Coast surf school are state-certified and own a national certificate in supervision and rescue. They will share their passion for board sports with you!

You will have the choice between 5 packages: the initiation lesson, the group lesson, 3 group lessons, 5 group lessons and the surfing week-end. 

The starting time of the lessons depend on the tides so that you to surf in the best conditions ever. Generally, the lessons start very early in the morning to avoid a crowded beach.

The instructors organize the groups depending on your level for you to be able to improve as much as possible. They stay with you in the water and give you individual coaching. There will be a maximum of 8 participants per instructor.

The participants get ready for the lesson at the Hendaye surf shop. Please count 30 minutes approx. before and after each lesson.

Each lesson starts with a warm-up session. The instructor will give the students some information concerning the weather conditions of the day, especially concerning the tide, the nature of the waves and the wind directions. He will give you a theory lesson, on the beach, where he will tell you all about the basic surfing techniques (how to ride a wave, how to stand back up on your board, how to stand in balance…).
