Biarritz Surf Therapy Seminar
From the integration seminar to the team building seminar and the management seminar, company seminars differ from other company events because they are an essential management tool that help your company to grow.
A seminar 100% Surf
While the duration and frequency vary from one company to another depending on size and budget, the company seminar nevertheless meets very specific strategic objectives. In other words, you don't organize a company seminar to do what everyone else does.
In addition to the fact that we can offer you more traditional seminars with very popular activities on this market: 2CV tours, electric bikes, gastronomic tasting, introduction to Basque pelota, etc. We prefer to offer you a 100% surf seminar, 100% holistic and 100% focused on individual and collective performance.
Surfing lessons with Gautier Garanx followed by a TEDx-type conference on the achievement of ambitious, risky, "challenging but achievable goals" that require taking risks which you think you have mastered... but that get out of hand. You can listen to Gautier Garanx, surfer of big waves and customer manager of a big supermarket chain who, out of passion, physical and mental preparation, won the most prestigious big wave competition in the world: the XXL billabong... a record that pushed him to his limits, to the edge of a blackout. A whole story!
In order to couple theory with practice and to give tools to your employees so that they can also achieve ambitious challenges we offer you a holistic approach that boosts the body and mind:
- sports awakening with Manu Palau, 50 years old, physical and mental trainer
- Hatha yoga in the gym with Sophie Perret Du Cray

Biarritz, the european surf capital
For its investment in the discipline, and with surfers, Biarritz obtained in October 2015, the label Ville de surf - 3 stars (on a scale that includes 3 stars) awarded by the French Surf Federation. Biarritz is the only city on the Basque coast to have several surf spots, each as different as the next. There are waves for beginners as well as experienced surfers. Its very rugged coastline allows you to surf all types of swells (large and small) but also to find waves sheltered from the wind depending on its orientation.
Almost sixty years after the epic of the Tontons Surfeurs, pioneers in 1956 from the beginnings of European surfing on the Côte des Basques, Biarritz is the oldest European surfing city. All over the world, from Hawaii to California and Australia, we know the spots and waves of Biarritz that unfold in front of real jewels of history and architecture.
This is probably why TripAdvisor users have designated Biarritz's Côte des Basques beach as the most beautiful beach in France (Traveller's Choice). At the foot of the famous 100 steps, and framed by the Villa Belza and the Marbella spot, this glamorous spot has hosted and continues to host many events such as the Casetas de Biarritz, the Wheels and Waves...

Nadia Rasamoely nutrithérapeute, eating well is health
"With an engineering and scientific background, I worked in companies for several years while at the same time I was passionate about soft and natural therapies and grandmothers' remedies.
My encounter with alternative medicine goes back more than twenty years following an acute hay fever crisis, one of the allergies I had been affected by since my adolescence after a childhood with atopic terrain.
On an empirical basis, I managed to completely free myself from all my allergies (pollen, cat hair, food, smoke...) without medication and then began a life of passion for health and natural well-being through plants, as well as for ecology in a more global way. This experience led me to reconsider my professional goals in order to combine my passion and my profession, thus I decided to train in Naturopathy and then in Nutritherapy, out of growing interest in Nutrition and micro-nutrition.
Since 2012, I have been accompanying people towards a better and healthier life. And I suggest that you benefit from my experience, my knowledge and my passion to accompany you too, on this path of holistic and natural health. I receive you in my office and also consult remotely, and in English.
Naturopath specialized and certified in Nutrition - Nutritherapy, trained by expert doctors and renowned in the field of nutrition and nutritherapy in France and internationally, I continue to train and inform myself on the latest scientific studies in the field of Nutrition and Nutritherapy in particular in order to bring you the maximum tools to achieve your health and well-being goals" Nadia RASAMOELY
