All you need to know about the surf school

The Cheeky Family greets you in its brand new Surf school in Lacanau Ocean, only 2 minutes walk from the waves. As soon as April starts we’re open every day until early November, we offer surf trips depending on levels and ages, for a better learning and a high-standard of courses.

The “Cheeky” spirit at Lacanau Surf school

In this small friendly and familiar Surf school, Dimitri the instructor, is an enthusiastic surfer who has been living in Lacanau for 20 years. His love for the ocean turns into a strong will to pass on his knowledge of this element in which he’s been instructing surfing for 10 years.

Forget about these surf lessons with instructors monitoring from the beach, at the Cheeky Family coaching is done straight in the water by a state-certified instructor.

There are no established hours for the surf courses as the waves’ selection is essential to adapt according to tide schedules, ocean condition and the different levels of practice. The training has to differ for beginners who stay close to the shore and for the most reckless surfers catching waves outback!
