The school


Beach Sauveterre, Olonne-sur-mer

Located in the heart of the wild coast, this beach offers waves for the practice and teaching surfing / boogie boarding.

Extended 4 km north of Les Sables d'Olonne, this coast offers a large practice space, funds are alternating slabs of rocks followed by long sandy beaches. It allows beginners to practice safely and to those who know how to surf or want to change to confront the most powerful waves.

2 new spots in Les Sables d’Olonne!

In 2016 Ohana Surf is setting up an mobile surf school on two sites of practice in and around Les Sables d'Olonne:

A gravel beach called l’Aubraie:

a natural and pristine site, situated on the wild coast North of La Chaume, in front of the “Les Dunes” campsite.

This spot has the same wind and wave exposition as Sauveterre. It is more changeable because it is situated between rock formations advancing into the ocean.

Lessons can only take place at half tide and low tide. Your instructor will guide you to the best sand bank.

The bay of Les Sables d'Olonne :

on the sea front close to the city center, facing south, it is a fallback spot. The harbor jetty breaks and smoothes the waves creating most of the time gentle surfing conditions to begin in complete safety.
The mobile surf school thus moves from one site to the other depending on the sea conditions, tides and your level!
The School take care of the transport A/R on these 2 places of practice, Les Sables d'Olonne and Aubraie.

The surfing lessons of the mobile school last for 2 hours, including the trips to and from the different spots.

Stand Up Paddle in the marshes:

The school proposes guided stand up paddle visits of the salt marshes of Olonne on a protected site. Beginning at the “Ecluse Des Loirs” (a lock on the canal leading from the swamps to Les Sables d’Olonne.) these visits offer you an opportunity to try stand up paddle boarding and to discover part of the protected marshes.
