So what’s it all about?

If group classes are not your thing, and you prefer faster progression in a lesson tailored exclusively for you, then you have come to the right place!

Finding the best waves for you is our job! In private lessons we really get to know you. We will adapt our teaching and surf spot choice to suit your character, style, and level.

From first time standing up to nailing those technical carves, we’ll be in the water with you. Your surf instructor will be teaching, coaching, filming, and making sure you have a fun, safe, you-centred session!

We will provide you with surfboards for all levels. Also we have wetsuits for all seasons, plus hoods, booties, and gloves for winter.

Raphael is your experienced, friendly, local surf guide who has a French Surfing Federation Instructor Diploma, a Federal Surf Coach Diploma and a First Aid & Life Saving (surf specific) Diploma – renewed every year.

We have a private mini bus so that we can move from the meeting point if we need to change spots.

We can film/photograph you to help progress your techniques and as a little souvenir to take home.
