These include 4x 90 minutes of practical surf lessons on Moliets-Plage, the beach just outside the surf camp, 1x 90 minutes breath & balance workshop as well as 1x 90 minutes of surf theory in the surf camp, teaching you about water safety, rip currents and the intricacies of French beach breaks.
Surf Course & Surf Instructors
During your weeks’ surf course, our surf instructors teach you the essentials of surfing such as how to paddle into waves, catching waves, standing up and controlling your surfboard. We use ‘foamies’ for our surf lessons which are great for beginners to catch the most waves.
All our surf instructors are qualified, fully licensed in the country they teach surfing in and have a lifeguarding qualification. They have a good understanding of the wave conditions and local surf spots, and are always ready to lend you a helping hand. The maximum group size for our surf lessons is eight surfers per one instructor plus one surf assistant if required. The use of surf equipment (surfboard, leash and wetsuit) is included in you surf lessons.
Your first surf lesson will be on Sunday. We all meet at the surf tent for an introduction and wetsuit allocation in the morning of your first day surfing. We divide all surfers into beginner and intermediate groups. Your surf lesson times are displayed on our notice board in the surf camp.
Revitalize your mind with Yoga
Yoga has swept surfers off their feet with most professional surfers practising yoga to help improve flexibility, core strength and surfing performance. After a long day surfing, yoga is a fantastic way to improve your flexibility and strengthen your body.
We have built a large shaded yoga platform among the trees. We run a weekly yoga schedule with two yoga sessions per day (not Saturdays). Our enthusiastic and professional yoga instructors make their sessions fun and accessible to ‘Yogis’ of all levels. Once a week, we go down to the beach for an evening yoga session at sunset.
Join our yoga sessions here in our Moliets surf camp and see the positive effects of yoga for yourself, your body and your surfing. Choose from 3, 5 or 10 yoga sessions per surf camp week. We provide exercise equipment during the sessions free of charge.
