Alternatively, join in with the activities on our school’s leisure program, most of which are free. You could go on a tour of Biarritz, play sports like beach volleyball and basketball, take part in dancing, theatre and other workshops, and enjoy school parties. Of course, students on the surf program can also participate in any activities that aren’t happening at the same time as their surf lessons.
Our school also organises half-day and full-day excursions, with possible destinations including Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Pau and the beautiful bay of Arcachon. You might also be lucky enough to experience the majestic Pyrenees or the Spanish city of San Sebastián.
Fly to Biarritz, Pau, Bordeaux or San Sebastián airports, or arrive at Biarritz train station, and our school will gladly arrange a two-way transfer service for you. This is not included in the price of the course, however.
