Your Surf Coach

Born and raised in Médoc, fond of surfing since I was a kid, and with now more than 20 years of assiduous practice, I naturally decided to make surf teaching my job.

This sport and his environment guided me in a lot of my choices, and are still a source for inspiration, motivation, and new challenges. 

I now would like to share all the positive things this sport brought to me.

I travelled a bit with surfing being a part of the objective, but France's Southwest Atlantic coast, and especially the Médoc, kept calling me back. This wild, preserved and uncrowded place is an exceptional playground. 

It's never too late to start having fun on a surfboard. If you are enthusiastic and cheerful, you can get a good autonomy pretty quick. Your level of fitness and motivation will then define the improvement.

I am here to support you, and to help defining realistic objectives for progression.


For those with some experience, whatever the skills, stepping back on your practice, and focusing on the concrete challenges will help you to move forward pretty fast.


See you on the beach !
