What you'll do

Private lessons are 1.5 hours and range from 1 to 5 people (couples, groups of friends, families, etc.)

This teaching is perfect for beginners looking for new sensations as well as experienced surfers demanding them, performance and progress at each session.

For the best success of my students, only 6 maximum can be present in the water with me against 8 for a group lesson.

Quality equipment will be fully provided to you according to your level, size and weight for maximum pleasure.

I offer introductory lessons from the age of 6 which range from total discovery of surfing to seasonal practice.

Advanced courses are technical and progression courses. They are carried out offshore, behind the breaking area of the waves and require a certain autonomy of / students.

For your safety and your learning I will always be present in the water with you and will help you with practical and technical advice to achieve your goals.

Let’s have fun!

Where you'll be

I travel and organize lessons with varied schedules depending on sea conditions and tide times. From Bidart to Hendaye via Guéthary and its small local fishing port and Saint Jean de Luz and its historic city center. Bidart is known for its chapel, its typically Basque center where you can have a coffee on the terrace on the large pediment and its cliffs overlooking the beaches of the coast.
