Come for a discovery surfing course in Saint-Jean-de-Luz with Gold Coast school of surf! You can pick from several packages adapted to your expectations and objectives so go ahead and do it! You will ride the best waves of the region!
The Gold Coast surf school of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, certified by the French Federation of Surf, is located in the center of the city (62 rue Gambetta), inside the Chica Beach shop. A team of friendly and passionate experts will be happy to welcome you and to teach you how to surf. You can pick from 3 packages: Discovery course, 3-day course or 5-day course.
The starting time of the lessons depends on the tides so that you can 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…).
