It is incontestable that a major part of Lacanau's reputation comes from its privileged location on the coast, which makes of this place a hotspot for surfing, a water sport that has been in vogue for a few years now.
Faced with the rise of this form of gliding and to respond to the influx of new practitioners and the growing demand for courses of all levels, several structures were created in Lacanau.
Schools now offer various options, two of which are particularly popular: the "discovery" method for surfing, and the 10- or 20-hour courses. Count a budget ranging from 30 to 300 euros, from the time of the course to the intensive course.
Historically, the Lacanau Surf Club is the first to offer courses and surf courses on the model already run in ski schools, with qualified instructors, the provision of adapted equipment, and insurance options to the map. This is where most of the trainees come from all over Europe.
Beyond the Surf Club, there are private facilities of different sizes in Lacanau: surf schools with several instructors and more family-oriented facilities with independent instructors such as Banana Surf School, Ocean Ride and Mana surf's cool.
