    We discovered the surf school "Les Vagues" in HOSSEGOR in November 2022 with a course for teenagers and a handover for an adult.
    Benjamin has extensive experience as a high-level athlete combined with an extraordinary sense of education. All this produces a choice of spot and board perfectly suited to your level and the conditions encountered. Benjamin immediately sees what you need, advice that strikes. He knows how to center you on the right movements, sensations and gaze that really make you progress. This, whatever your level, your skill or your difficulties. All with natural kindness. And it provides security!
    In short, he is the IDEAL TEACHER!!!

    You will have the chance to have surf lessons by Benjamin who was vice champion of France in surfing!
    He is very professional and very friendly.
    Thanks to him, my beginner children (14 and 12 years old) made enormous progress in just five days. It adapts to everyone's level.
    If we return to the region next year, we will definitely resume lessons with him.
    Do not miss ! The best moment of our stay!
