The surf-school of Nicolas Le Cossec ‘Surf and Rescue’ offers you the chance to discover the pleasures of the ocean waves via two highly complementary sports – surf-riding and sea rescue.
This is the best way to enjoy as much as possible the ever changing conditions the ocean provides, to extend our capabilities using diffent means and to work on our physical fitness in general.
The philosophy of the surf school is to make the most of every moment spent in the waves (with or without a board) to enhance our knowledge of the marine environment, so that at the end of the course everyone comes out capable of enjoying their sport in complete safety and autonomy.
To this end we use a variety of equipment depending on the condition of the waves.  Swimming in the sea punctuated by spates of body-boarding is essential to learning to ‘surf the wave’.
A mixture of practice of your skills in the sea coupled with periods spent reviewing your performance out of the water with the instructor will enable him to set you tasks to carry out according to the progress made.
An assessment of the weather and sea conditions is made at the beginning of every session in order to decide the best methods to use to ride the waves.
At the end of each course the monitor will provide you with a complete assessment of your progress and will give you tips on how to continue to improve.  This guidance may include other types of cross training (swimming, cycling, running, combat sports).
This type of training is available in Batz-sur-Mer and Pornichet  Loire Atlantique, from March to November.
