Escape Bordeaux and go surfing at Lacanau

Who hasn’t wanted to escape their daily routine for a few hours to recharge their batteries and come back refreshed? Just a few kilometers from Bordeaux, the Atlantic Ocean offers a moment of escape, a return to nature, far from the hustle and bustle of the city. Residents of Bordeaux and the surrounding area are exceptionally lucky to be able to escape quickly to a little sandy paradise: Lacanau. And what’s there to do in Lacanau? Nothing beats signing up for a surfing lesson. In this article, we’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to our surf school: Ocean Ride!

An ideal location

Ocean Ride is a surf school located right on the waves, just a few steps away from Lacanau-Océan’s best surf spots. The view of the waves from the school and the sea air provide an idyllic setting for an unforgettable day or weekend of surfing. The school is open every day from late March to early November. Shops and restaurants are just a few minutes’ walk from the school, so you can recharge your batteries after surfing lessons. And the Ocean Ride team will be happy to recommend the best places to go, depending on what you’re looking for.

A surf school for every level

Lacanau’s waves are ideal for learning to surf in complete safety. Waves break on sandbanks, so you can start surfing in the moss and stay in a zone where you have a foothold. More experienced surfers can use the bay currents to access the open sea and ride green waves. Our surfing lessons are organized by level and age, with teaching methods tailored to each individual’s needs and expectations. Surf lessons are supervised by a team of experienced, passionate and attentive instructors. They’re at your side on the beach, but also in the water to help and encourage you. For optimum safety, all surf lessons are organized according to the tide and the level of students. All our instructors are first-aiders and have a perfect knowledge of the marine environment.

A warm welcome

Our surf school places great importance on welcoming and integrating its students. Our welcoming team will take care of you in a warm and family atmosphere. Whether you’re a shy novice or a feisty experienced surfer, you’ll immediately feel at home in this relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We’re here to support and encourage you, whether on the beach, in the water or at school.

At Ocean Ride, the safety and comfort of our students is our top priority. That’s why we invest in top-quality and high-performance surf equipment, renewed every year. We do our utmost to ensure that your surfing experience is as enjoyable as possible. You’re sure to find your favorite surfboard at our school!
