Am I too old to learn to surf?
Too old to learn to surf? We think that's an excuse! :)
Surf Course Content
We are now very well known in Europe for particularly detailed and very individual surfing lessons in theory and practice.
In the THEORY part, the oceanography lesson, you will learn everything you need to know about dangers, currents, tides, wind and wave formation, wave types, priority rules, surf forecasts and environmental problems. Each THEORY unit lasts about 60 minutes.
Finally, the PRACTICE part is dedicated to paddling, take-off and surfing broken and unbroken waves.
You have the choice between the following surf courses:
1-day trial surf course: If you are still unsure whether you want to learn to surf.
3-day surf course: Learning basic knowledge with basic theory knowledge (alternatively: refresher of previous knowledge).
5-day surf course: Learning in-depth knowledge plus advanced techniques with more theory knowledge and photo/video analysis.
Surf course duration
Expect 3.5 to 4 hours of surf lessons per day. The theory lessons take place in the surf camp lounge (approx. 1 hour). The practical lessons take place on the beach (approx. 2.5 hours). The rest of the day is at your leisure. Surf course start is usually Sunday. Friday is buffer day or freesurf day. We are quite flexible and can take a day off if you wish. The way to the beach is 10 minutes on foot, 2 minutes by car.
The surfing material (surfboard, wetsuit, leash, wax) is included in the surfing course and can also be used before/after the surfing course for independent surfing. When booking the 5-day surf course, the material is included for the entire week of your stay, when booking the 3-day surf course on the three surf course days.
Photo package included
1-2 x per week we combine the surf lessons with a surf photo or video session. We will make the resulting images available for you to download free of charge.
We also offer surf courses for intermediate and advanced surfers (incl. video coaching).
Maybe you just want to get more green waves or work on special maneuvers like cutback, top turn or foamclimb. This is about improving your individual surfing technique.
Secret Wave Surf Camp
Secret Wave Surfcamp is the only surf camp EXCLUSIVELY for adults 30+:
SECRET WAVE is a hidden insider tip:A cozy bed & breakfast + surfcamp with very personal surf courses on the french Atlantic coast, north of Biarritz.
In 2013 we started the project "Luxury surf camp for adults age 30+". The result is a boutique style tropical oasis in the surfing mecca Seignosse / Hossegor. We offer surf courses that are specially tailored to adults and older people.
Each of the 5 luxurious double rooms has a modern bathroom, king-size bed and terrace.You can walk to the beach (10 min.), to the lake (5 min.) or the center of Hossegor (30 mins.).
SECRET WAVE Surf Lodge is hidden in a tropical garden and has five luxuriously furnished double rooms and a designer loft. The surfcamp is located on the border between Hossegor and Seignosse, 500m from the beach and 250m from the lake.
The small size and familiar atmosphere of the surfcamp guarantees a quiet & relaxed surfing holiday, away from the hustle and bustle of young surf camps. The average age of our guests is over 30 years, which is why we are also called the "30+ surf surf camp".
The surf concept
SECRET WAVE is a luxurious surf camp with german-speaking surf-classes, specially tailored for older adults. Our surf courses include extensive theory lesson and video analysis.
Secret Wave offers feel-good atmosphere, exquisite style and privacy for relaxed holidays. We have deliberately decided against shared rooms. The double rooms each have their own bathroom, kingsize bed and covered terrace with a cozy seating area. A rich breakfast buffet is included in the room rate.
Just a short walk away you find world class waves, endless beaches, great shopping, restaurants and surf competitions of international standing.
Of course, you can also spend the night at SECRET WAVE surfcamp without taking surf classes.
