    • Since 1966 the JO MORAIZ surf school has been teaching surfing on the mythical beach of the Basque Coast in BIARRITZ, the European Capital of Surfing.

      With more than 50 years of experience, its instructors will guide you in the water during the whole course and give you advice and assistance to catch a maximum of waves and save precious time.
      The school is certified as a French surfing school and offers courses, group and private lessons from 6 to 77 years old, supervised by instructors who hold a state certificate and BPJEPS.

      Jo Moraiz Surf School welcomes you from April to November.

      Surfing lessons are suitable for beginners as well as for experienced surfers, for children as well as for adults.
      The surf school has more than 100 boards adapted and evolving from shortboard 5'10 to longboard 9'2 to follow you in your progression in complete safety.
      The surf school also has a wide range of wetsuits for all body types and all seasons.

      Jo Moraiz is also a surf lodge with independent apartments for 2 to 4 people for adults. Located near a lake in a quiet and wooded area, they give you access in a few minutes to the beaches and best surf spots.

      Come and live a unique surfing experience with us!

    Our surf coach Tom was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The surf conditions weren't great but he gave us the hands on guidance needed to make the most of the experience.

    Absolutely wonderful surf school. I had my first surfing holiday here about a month ago and I'll struggle to explain here what a good time I had. The location is lovely, les moniteurs de surf are really great, and it's so fantastic being in the sea and trying to catch the waves. I did the intensive course meaning I did two 1.5 hours lessons per day (for 5 days). It was really great, but definitely heed the advice on the website because it is pretty tiring and rough on your body, especially if you're a beginner (like I was) and do everything wrong at the start. Having said that, I'm so glad I chose it, and I'd absolutely do the same again if I got the chance. Thanks so much to Tom, William, Elodie, Nico, Alex and everyone else at Jo Moraiz, I absolutely loved my time there. And, I hope I'm back soon.

    Overall it was a bit loosley organised. The staff was a bit passive and you had to ask to get equipped. Boards were in good shape, wetsuits a bit smelly. Instructions in the beginning were clear...
