    • OCEAN RIDE: A surfing and bodyboarding adventure in Lacanau

      In Lacanau, in the heart of the Atlantic coast, the OCEAN RIDE surf and bodyboard school opens its doors to you for an unforgettable experience on the waves. Founded by Thibault and Damien, two local surf enthusiasts, OCEAN RIDE benefits from more than 15 years of experience and expertise in supporting surfing enthusiasts.

      A committed and friendly surf school

      Located on the Emile Lacaze promenade, with direct access to the beach, our school welcomes you in an idyllic setting, close to the center of the resort. Our premises offer all the necessary comfort with separate men's and women's changing rooms, showers, toilets and a space dedicated to sliding equipment. At OCEAN RIDE, our concept is simple: offer quality surf lessons while raising awareness among our students about respecting the environment in Lacanau.

      A story of passion and commitment

      Childhood friends and members of the Lacanau Surf Club, Thibault and Damien made their dream come true by creating OCEAN RIDE in 2010. Since then, they have continued to evolve and innovate to offer the best possible experience to their students. In 2012, the school moved to premises ideally located on the seafront, offering a breathtaking view of the waves, an inspiring setting for learning and progress. Today, OCEAN RIDE has become a reference in Lacanau-Océan, offering quality surf lessons in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

      A passionate and dedicated team

      To support students in their progress, Thibault and Damien are surrounded by a passionate and dedicated team. Ben, the wise man of the team, Léa, the school's ray of sunshine, and all the other instructors and members of the team are there to welcome you, guide you and help you progress in a friendly and caring atmosphere. At OCEAN RIDE, each student is at the heart of our adventure, and it is thanks to you that we continue to grow and share our passion for surfing.

    The best place in Lacanau if you want to learn how to surf. I enjoyed it so much that I initially bought 1 class but then added four. The staff is extremely kind and able to put you in a good mood as soon as you walk in. The teachers are smiley, positive, very proffessional, attentive, encouraging and able to transmit confidence in the water. I really enjoyed my time there and I feel I progresses in total security. The school facilities are clean and the material used excellent. I could not reccomend this place more. A big thank you to all the staff of the school, you guys are great and are doing a wonderful job.

    Very nice school with good prices and great instructors(much gratitude to Ben and Hoel). All our beginner group could catch at least one green wave after 4th lesson. Equipment and services are great and stuff is very friendly😍 Surfing in October is great - beaches are empty and the water in ocean is still warm enough to surf
