The Team

that manages your stay

A surfing stay in Biarritz ?

Surftraining and all of its team are there to help you make your surfing stay perfect. Our team of professionals is committed to a safe and high quality offer.

Our surf instructors are all state graduates (BEE surf) and speak English as well as Spanish. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced, adult or child, they will share with you their passion for surfing.

Groups are up to 8 students for 1 instructor, they will help you in order to have the most suitable equipment for your level and sea conditions. They will guide you to choose the best place to surf during your lessons. As everyone does not progress as his own rhythm, they will make individual corrections. Finally, they will be in the water with you to encourage you and help you to take the best waves.

On the Côte des Basques beach, where we have a “cabana” with changing rooms and showers. The staff will help you to register yourself, give you lessons and tides schedules and informations about the rental.

For your surfing holidays during the school holidays, a team of BAFA graduated animators supervise the teenagers for the inter-surf and the evenings.


Who are we ?



Philippe Beudin

Philippe Beudin was born in Biarritz, he is one of this generation who saw surfing arriving on the beaches of the Basque Country. At this time, there were no schools and it was all well and good, helped by the older ones, that he learned to surf. After several years traveling the world he returned to the country to make his passion his trade. Professional for more than 25 years, he puts his experience and know-how at the service of others.
