Basque Coast Surf School, Hendaye

Our surf school is located in Hendaye. You don't have to carry any heavy equipment you're right on the beach!

Hendaye, a surf spot for beginners and intermediates !



The long beach of Hendaye (3.5km) is a garden for beginners. 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). >
When the swell is really big, there is only one solution: go to the fallback spot of Hendaye.
Be careful as everywhere, the spot does not work at high tide and at low tide the size of the waves tends to decrease. The swell disappears completely at low tide.
The advantage of this range is that it is very large, it has many peaks.
This spot is ideal to start surfing!


With its 3 kilometres of width, Hendaye unrolls the largest fine sandy beach on the Basque Coast.
It is here that Pauline Ado, 2009 Junior World Surfing Champion, surfed her first waves. Thanks to its policy of preserving sensitive natural areas, 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.

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 fallback spot. Simply bring a swimsuit to put under the wetsuit, a towel, clothes to change after 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 age and levels

in order to give you the greatest satisfaction possible . We will therefore contact you 48hours before the lesson day to give you your schedule according to the tides but also the "reliable wave and weather forecasts".
