Cloarec Surf Institute: Surf School in Seignosse in the Landes

By Tom & Nelson Cloarec

A new surfing adventure

Professional competitive surfers with a BPJEPS Surf diploma, originally from Brittany and Landais by adoption since 2006, we dropped anchor at Seignosse le Penon, having surfed most of the world’s waves.

The time has come for us, the Cloarec brothers, to embark on a new surfing adventure … the creation of a Surf School, in the Landes, at Seignosse le Penon!

Our school

It was in Seignosse, in the Landes region of France, that we decided to set up our surf school. Its wide beaches and sandbanks are sure to make your stay unforgettable.

We’d like to share our passion for surfing and the knowledge we’ve acquired over the years, both in the French national team (for 6 years) and on the professional World Surf League circuit, with a wider public.

Our values

To achieve this, our surf school aims to offer authentic, methodical teaching that will meet the needs of each individual, emphasizing communication, exchange, confidence and adaptability with appropriate equipment. For those in search of excellence and performance, we also offer small group courses, one-to-one lessons and individual or competition coaching.

But our aim is to help both novice and experienced surfers discover the intense pleasure that surfing can generate.

Equipped with all the necessary equipment and located by the ocean, our school welcomes children and adults, beginners, intermediates and experts, to teach you and help you progress in a medium that is our own: surfing.

Come and join us by booking your lesson, by phone +33648793921 or by dropping by the school at 13 place Victor Gentille – 40510 Seignosse Le Penon, open 7 days a week.

We’ll provide you with all the equipment you need (wetsuit + board), and all you have to do is show your motivation!

Our premises

Our premises are located on the Penon, and have been completely renovated to welcome you all year round in the best possible conditions: reception, changing rooms, toilets, video analysis and coaching room, lounge area, small bar and kitchen for those who wish to extend the conviviality of the glide after a session with a hot or cold drink…
