How did you like the accommodation?


The accommodation was great with a super friendly atmosphere among the staff and guests. Great place to hang out post surf. Nice dorms and bathroom.

A 10 minute walk to the nearby village.
Far from the beach, but since transport along with the gear was provided this wasn't an issue.

Delighted with my stay.

Thanks Michael, I'm very happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Have a great summer.

How did you like the surf lessons?


Had a chat with Paul about the conditions and what kind and surfing I wanted to do and he hooked me up with a board.

Transported us to and from the beach. When there he filled us in on the different breaks on the beach and gave us some advice.

Carefully picked which time we'd go each day to suit the conditions to the group, was appreciated as we went when we should rather than when would have been convenient.

We had a great time and learned a lot about France's waves, surfing, wheatgrass and Qi! It was great meeting everybody.
