Opinions and testimonials
Number 1 activity in Lacanau on Trip Advisor!
“My partner and I had our very first surf lesson with Magic Surf School last week. I personally was a bit nervous about being a complete beginner, but the instructors made me feel totally relaxed and were so friendly and helpful. We were the only English people in the group, but that didn’t matter at all, the instructors were happy to take the time to translate to us, and even apologised for their perfect English!
The lesson was brilliant and we will definitely be going back :)”
Wonderful place and people
“Warm and friendly people from Magic Surf School meet you when you just step in. After taking all necessary equipment the cutest bus from the school take you to the perfect place with appropriate waves for the lesson. Taking this class you receive group lesson with individual supervision. It was my first time ever on surfboard and explanation from Adrien was very clear and helpful. Already in one hour I could stand on surfboard for a bit. I would definitely recommend to join the school for your surf experience.”
Great place to surf, solo, with friends or with family
“The office is located near the main square. Not difficult to find, it has a happy and chill vibe. Very professional, they were quick to respond to my emails and were very helpful in accommodating my needs. The wet suits are fairly new, and so we’re the boards. The lessons were brief and well explain. Leaving you more time to spend with the waves. Adrien is great! Attentive and friendly, I could not ask for a better instructor. Under his supervisor, I was able to surf on the first day. If ever I return to Lacanau, without hesitation I will go back to Magic Surf School.”
Great week of surf lessons!
“We took 5 days of surf lessons at the Magic Surf School, where for me it was the first time ever on a surfboard. Great instructors, always friendly and trying to get the best out of you in the time that you’re there. The lessons are often at the perfect spot, where there are not a lot of other surfers, and they search the best waves for the lesson (depending on the experience of the group). I would highly recommend this surf school to anyone!”
Great experience, a must…
“My brother and I absolutely loved it. This was our first surfing experience (2hrs course, two days in a row)! Adrien and his team are super nice, flexible, and great teachers. They are in the water encouraging everybody and giving customised advice. We managed to stand on the board during the first course, and the second day was even better. The surfing spot is a short 10min drive in the MSS minibus, on a beautiful beach with plenty of space to surf.Will definitely go with Magic Surf School next summer, and I honestly can’t wait!”

“It was my first time surfing but will not be the last! The instructors were just brilliant. They were always on the look for how i was doing, giving instructions and correcting my mistakes. I felt very safe all the time. My second day the instuctor was next to me all the time. Advising which wave to catch and helping me catch the wave. Generally a great experience you could tell the team has a lot of knowledge and care for each student. Go surf with them! You are in for a treat!”
