The school


Beach Sauveterre, Olonne-sur-mer

Stretching over 4 km north of Les Sables d'Olonne, this coast offers a large area for practice, the seabed alternating with slabs of rock followed by long sandy beaches. It therefore allows beginners to practice safely and those who know how to surf or who want to evolve to confront more powerful waves. Exposed spot, it is open to all swells.

From June 15 to September 15, the school is located directly on the beach north of the parking lot, near the aid station. The surf area is nearby, chosen according to the sandbank and the tide. Due to the proximity of the practice site, the lessons last 1 hour 30 minutes.

Outside this period, Ohana Surf welcomes you at 28, route de la Mer at the edge of the forest. Since 2016, we have been offering roaming between Sauveterre and Sables d'Olonne bay if conditions allow.

The bay of Les Sables d'Olonne :

Facing the embankment near the city center, facing south, it is a fallback spot. The breakwater of the port breaking and smoothing the swells, it allows most of the time quiet waves to start safely.
Roaming outside of summer allows you to evolve on these 2 sites according to sea conditions, tides and your level!
