Our surf school

Since 1996, Bidart Guéthary Parlementia surf school has continued to provide with passion, surf on the mythic spot of Parlementia.
Open all year round, the school offers internships, and group or private lessons, for everyone from 6 to 77 years old, supervised by instructors holding a State Certificate.
With or without accomodation, and thanks to its experience, the school guarantees a surfing learning with the best teaching methods, a qualified management team, some suitable equipment for everyone and the good choice for the practice area to perfect your level of practice.

Our commitments since 1996

Bidart Guéthary Parlementia surf school is registred to the Departmental Directorate of Youth and Sports (n°06498 and n°0015) and certified by the French Surfing Federation.
It is a group of instructors, who are all lifeguards, surfers, and who hold the State Certificate of Sports Educator with a Surf option, and who will give you lessons to learn how to surf.
Our golden rule is to provide effective teaching, by making you evolve in complete safety, and in a friendly atmosphere. Whatever your level, your age or your expectations, you will find in our different formulas the one that is made for you.
We offer alternative activities, in case of flat seas, such as stand-up paddle-board lessons (no extra charge). We also offer level notebooks and very nice diplomas at the end of the course.
We practice a very strict selection for the choice of a new instructor in our group.

Welcome at Parlementia

Finally, we have, since 1999, the opportunity to obtain the agreement and concession from the Bidart Town Hall, to have the exclusive access to the Parlementia spot, to provide surf lessons during the summer season (from April to October).
Our ethic is, with the greatest respect for the riders, not to rend a surfboard or stand-up paddle-board at the peak of Parlementia, and to come with only 8 students at the same time, in order to not overload this magnificent wave.

Some pictures to dream about

The staff

Bidart Guéthary Parlementia's surf school is a real family story, Dominique had the chance to experience the beginnings of surfing in France at the Côte des Basques, especially in Guéthary. When she moved to the region, she met Christophe, a surfing fan, with whom she first founded an association, a sports club. Since then, Christophe has transmitted the virus to his daughter Marine who now teaches with the same passion as he does.

Their ideal is to combine safety, perfect teaching and friendliness, without ever exceeding 8 people on the same beach, in each class.

All the team's instructors are lifeguards, surfers and holders of the State Certificate of Sports Educator with a surf option.

It is now up to you to choose the course formula that suits you best and to enjoy the joys of surfing under the supervision of a competent professional.
