An important information for sun worshippers in advance: If you like to take the feeling of surf camp with you, but don't feel like salt water and wetsuit, you can book the surf course in the beach option of this camp and save 100 Euro! But now: The lively and colourful coastal town of Vieux Boucau les Bains - better known as "Vieux" among the old hands of surfing enthusiasts travelling to France - is about 2 hours south of Bordeaux and 1 hour north of Biarritz. Right in the middle of the action! Right in the centre of Vieux, which can be reached on foot within a few minutes from the camp, there are small street cafés, cosy restaurants and trendy surf shops. Nearby there is also a seawater lagoon where you can swim far away from the waves of the Atlantic Ocean or even rent pedal boats and SUPs if you feel like it.
The campsite where we put up our tents for the summer is known as Les Sablères and is located directly behind the protected sand dune on the beach section best suited for surfing lessons. The resort is awarded with three stars and has very well maintained sanitary facilities, which are cleaned several times a day, a large beach volleyball and basketball court, a small football pitch for leisure activities and areas for boules. We will be happy to lend you the material you need! If you want to stay longer or treat yourself to a little extra luxury, you can rent a small safe for valuables or your own fridge compartment at the reception and wash your clothes in the coin-operated washing machines. Life on the campsite actually feels like life in a small village: with neighbours you greet with your first cup of coffee in the morning and meet again later in the line-up.
Accommodation during your surf holiday will be super close to nature in cosy 2-person tents, which are equipped with sleeping cabins for the extra bit of privacy and have a spacious anteroom for brought luggage, including your favourite bikini and flip-flops. Our steep wall tents are well impregnated for all weather conditions and offer plenty of space for all the things you need for a great surf holiday. And if you're not over 1.90 metres tall, you can even stand upright in your holiday accommodation! Sleeping bags and air mattresses are not provided by us and must be brought by each camp guest - otherwise it will be uncomfortable for seven nights. Mobile phones and other electronic devices can be recharged at any time in the camp's bar tent.
A lot of sport and fresh coastal air make you hungry! That's why our chef and his team provide balanced and tasty meals every day. When you get up in the morning, a top breakfast buffet is waiting for you, which leaves nothing to be desired from fresh fruit to crunchy baguette and at the same time offers everything for a super packed lunch, so that you can strengthen yourself later in the day between the learning units of your surf course. When you return to camp in the evening, a warm dinner awaits you - including fresh salad and sweet dessert! If you live vegetarian or vegan or suffer from a food intolerance, please let us know at the time of booking with a comment in the comment field and inform us briefly in the kitchen on the day of your arrival. So we can be prepared to conjure something special for you!
Our beginner's course is made up of practical and theoretical elements and brings each course participant in a few steps completely relaxed on the board. Most of the time you are with your board - a softtop, so that nothing goes wrong and you have especially good buoyancy - in the middle of the white waves. You practice taming waves with the help of dry drills and advice from your surf coach and you always pull back into the water. The practical part of 10 lessons of 45 minutes each is followed by a theoretical part about meteorology and wave studies in the camp, which explains the mechanics and conditions of the Atlantic ecosystem and the dynamics of surfboards. Other topics include surfing equipment and surfing prebook rules. At the end of your ingenious week at the surf camp, there will be a fun surf contest with all the course participants, where you can really step on the gas again!
Have you already completed a surf course with at least 10 learning units or have you already gained some experience on the board? Then you are best suited for our intermediate course, which gives you the freedom to try yourself and get an even better feeling for the waves out there! During this course you will hardly spend time on the beach with the other course participants, but get to know the real line-up outside in the green waves. This gives you the opportunity to improve your surfing skills and to watch your surfing technique closely in the targeted video analysis by the surf coaches - the great feature of this course - in order to achieve even greater progress. The Intermediate course consists of 10 practical 45-minute units and further theoretical elements. For an additional 120 euros per person, you can increase this course by 10 units to a total of 20 units of 45 minutes each.!
