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.
