  • In operation since 1955 and located at Central Beach (la Plage du Centre), the Ecole des Vagues Surf School is located just down from the village and can be reached on foot from Central Beach. Situated to the north of the beach, it enjoys an exceptional, unspoilt setting with vast dunes and rocks, wild cliffs and original vegetation. Walk down from the Chapel of Mary Magdalene and take in the magnificent view of the Bay of Biscay and the waves, suitable for all levels, visible just opposite the School.

    Far from the big ‘surf factories’, the School reserves you a personalised, tailor-made welcome. We are a family-run operation where the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Open to all ages, 52% of our members are 6–12 year-olds and 53% are regular surfers.
