Program

GENERAL INFORMATION

Before the journey begins we will have a first meet-up to get to know each other. If you can’t be in Vienna, you can participate via Skype – and receive all information in writing. All questions will be answered and the French level of the participants briefly checked! 😊

When we are surfing, we have to adapt to the tides, this means: depending on the sea level, the surf course or the French course will be in the morning – the other one will be in the afternoon. The (optional) yoga classes will also be adapted to the tides! 🌊

PROGRAM

  • DAY 1 – ARRIVAL in CAPBRETON
    On the first evening the whole group meets at the « Surf & French House ». The house is located directly in Capbreton, a picturesque seaside resort directly on the Atlantic coast. During summertime the place is very popular with surfers! 🏄

    At a first welcome drink and BBQ we will get to know each other and discuss the upcoming week.

    All questions will be answered and then we are ready to get into a relaxed surfer mood 🤙 😀

    Accommodation : Capbreton

    Apéritif & dinner: BBQ included

  • DAY 2 – FIRST SURF- & FRENCHDAY
    In the morning, a person which will be selected the evening before, together with a trainer will get croissants chauds & baguettes fraîches from the Boulangerie. The first challenge will be to order completely in French!😊

    As a group of max. 8 people we will surf together with either Clément or Julie. They’ll show us the basics and get us safely into the first waves! Attention, les cahiers de vocabulaire stay at home, so you better be vocabulary-safe! 😉 But no worries, a French trainer will always be close to help you!

    In the French course we will learn the basics of surf & beach vocabulary(either in the future or in the past). All your questions will be answered – en français bien sûr!

    At the end of the day, everyone who has booked the package will have the opportunity to do an hour of yoga with Sidney. She will always let us know one day in advance if she will come to our house or if we should meet her at the beach.
