Surf Camp Carcans Plage: Surf School in France
The beaches surrounding Bordeaux belong to the most well-known and beautiful surf spots in Europe. We offer you an unforgettable vacation, on which you can surf in a wonderful atmosphere and enjoy the surfing lifestyle in the cool summer nights of France.
Our French surf school, which is located northwest of Bordeaux in Cracans Plage, offers ideal surf conditions and beautiful beaches for relaxing down-time. The beaches of the Atlantic coast are just a stone's throw away - perfect for the surf vacation of a lifetime.
Carcans-Plage lies on the Silver Coast, which means that the beaches are at the center of activity. Picturesque dunes and the back-country with its lakes and pine forests invite guests to explore and discover the grounds on foot, horse, bike or even skates. Carcans is also located on one of the largest freshwater lakes, the Lac de Hourtin et de Carcans. Plus, watersport fanatics travel far and wide to spend their time kitesurfing, sailing, and windsurfing on the Atlantic waters. Day trips to Bordeaux, Dune du Pilat, and Lacanau are also popular passtimes of the area.
Behind the dunes, in the shade of the fragrent pine trees, lies the freestyle camp on the campground "Camping Municipale de L'Ocean". Just 150 meters separate you and your comfortable tents from the waves of the Atlantic and the sandy beaches. With easy access to the beach, you can enjoy your summer vacation in a laid-back surf atmosphere.
To ensure that you get a good start to your day, the breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of breakfast foods including coffee, tee, cereal, fruit, fresh bread and cold cuts. Guests are welcome to also take some snacks for later in the day. For the evening meal, our staff prepares a delicious feast, including salad, main course and dessert. Special diets can also be accomodated.
We would like to offer everyone the opportunity to experience this fantastic sport. The course selection is divided into various levels according to surfing experience to better fit the needs of all campers. We will either take you step by step through the basics or work to optimize your already developed skills. The courses are led in both English and German by our international, licensed surf instructors, who are competent in both the teaching setting and on the water.
The beginner's course consists of two parts. In the first few days, we will help you become confident with the basic Know-How. Extensive safety lessons are also included at the beginning. This phase of the course will also be accompanied by the corresponding surf theory.
In the second part of the course, you will begin to learn how to use the techniques in unbroken waves and build your abilities and self confidence while under the watchful eyes of your coach. We will also record your progress and play back the videos to aid the coaching. This way you can learn directly from your mistakes. By the way, all courses start with special and essential warm-ups.
