Surfing and its practice convey essential values for Biarritz Surf Training.The force of nature dictates its law and we must constantly remember that it is stronger than us.The unpredictable, the unknown, the spontaneity of the waves that are born in front of us and show that we are nothing reminds us to remain humble. The essence of surfing is to tame the unpredictable. Knowing how to read the ocean and its waves, knowing the relief of the seabed, the strength of the currents, the influence of the wind are all required skills. Because knowing how to surf is not done in a day, you have to know how to pass and juggle the phases of progression, euphoria and stagnation.In addition, the efforts related to the practice of surfing combine work of endurance, resistance, speed and power. The surfer is an accomplished sportsman.Surfing also teaches you to respect your body; warm-ups and recovery are essential to link the sessions but surfing also teaches respect for others and safety rules. Finally, surfing is an activity of sharing, letting go and building self-confidence.
In short, surfing is a life lesson !

The ocean is still a wild environment with its subtleties but especially its dangers. Above all, it is necessary to remain cautious and attentive in the waves, for pleasure, safety and that of others.
If you are a beginner, stay in the mosses or small waves. Use a foam board and protect your head in case of a fall.
Do not try to swim back to the edge, stay on your board and wave your arms to alert the emergency services.
Choose waves adapted to your level and avoid crowded spots. Never surf in stormy weather. Protect yourself from the sun by using sunscreen.
Surfing areas lie beyond the red-spotted green flags.
Basic rule: 1 wave = 1 surfer. The surfer furthest inside the surge has priority. Don’t throw yourself into a wave if there’s someone in front. Don’t let go of your board while making ducks. Avoid collisions: bypass the surge zone to get offshore.
Like any unstable natural environment, the ocean carries risks. As a result, surfers undertake as of right to monitor each other and to assist each other in case of danger.
