Basque Coast Surf School, Hendaye

Our surf school is located in Hendaye at the old Casino. You don't have to carry very heavy equipment, you're directly on the beach!

Hendaye, a surf spot for beginners and intermediates !

The long beach of Hendaye (3.5km) is a garden for beginner surfers. The waves are rarely too big and this very flat beach slows down the swell and allows surfing on all occasions unless the swell is really low (less than 1m and 6-7sec of period).
The best breaking waves are found in the middle of the bay towards the Casino.
The bigger it is, the more you surf on the sides.
It is also a fallback spot when the swells are too big for other spots.

Be careful as on all the other spots on the Basque coast, the waves are not good at high tide and at low tide the size of the waves tends to decrease.
The advantage of this beach is that it is very large. This spot is ideal to start surfing!

Hendaye, the largest fine sandy beach on the Basque Coast

Here is whhere Pauline Ado, 2009 Junior World Surfing Champion, surfed her first waves. Thanks to its policy of preserving sensitive natural areas, the city of Hendaye also has a "wild" aspect along the Corniche road.

From the giant wave of Belharra (Urrugne) to the "green slopes" for beginners in Hendaye Bay, the extreme south of the Basque coast cultivates an unusual diversity of spots, and reminds us that the best surfer of all is the one who takes the most pleasure.

Surf Hendaye courses and internships, on the Basque coast

Ideally located, you will enjoy a high quality surfing course and spend 1h30 in the water !

Remember to book in advance book in advance because in summer and during school holidays, slots are booked over 7 days and there is no space for last minute bookings.

What to bring for my surf lesson?

We provide the board, wetsuit, monitor and transport if the ocean is in a storm and you have to leave the area to go to a retreat spot. Simply bring a swimsuit to put under the wetsuit, a towel, a change of clothes and a bottle of water.

At what time are the classes?

We organize the courses about 2 hours before and after low tide

with normal coefficients of 50/70. This may be more with lower coefficients but in any case,

we organize the groups ourselves according to ages and levels

in order to give you the greatest possible satisfaction. We will therefore call you back 48h before the course day to give you your course time according to the tides but also the "reliable wave and weather forecasts".
