Surf courses and packages
As Tengo Frio often says, “surfing is first and foremost an activity to have fun”. We have therefore developed packages that best meet your expectations and needs.
Geoffroy your surf instructor
Originally from Lacanau, Geoffroy Henno is a former top level sportsman and the founder of the school. He has a Master’s degree in Sports and also has his Professional Surfing Certificate. Always motivated and smiling, you can’t miss him with his fluorescent pink wetsuit created especially for the school.
“Mexicans can’t pronounce my first name. So, to play with words, I tell them my name is ‘Tengo Frio’! Meaning “I’m cold” in Spanish and very close to Geoffroy”.

"Geoffroy knows how to adapt his lessons to the weather conditions but also to the different levels of the students. He is a very good teacher and listens to his students. He does not hesitate to show the right moves but also to mime the wrong ones to better visualize his mistakes. Go there with your eyes closed and you will return every day with a smile."
"For having had some experiences with surf schools (more or less good) I can very clearly put Tengo Frio Surfschool (or Geoffroy or the pink panther...) in first place. Relevant advice, a real progression project, a very good atmosphere. To be recommended absolutely!"
"15 days of family surfing with Tengo Frio, the young and teenage children and ourselves don't want anyone else. Always in a good mood, smiling, flexible and very professional! And above all, always on a board and in the water with his beginners or advanced students! We will come back without hesitation."

Wetsuit, leash, wax, sunscreen and foam board are provided within the two hour session.
We have a maximum of 8 students per class for maximum fun!
During low season, the levels are mixed. Remember that Tengo Frio is a former high level sportsman, his level of expertise allows him to adapt to everyone’s level. In July and August, there is a “family”, “teen” and “motivated freestyle” session.
The tides determine the time of the lessons. The priority is to teach in good conditions. We want you to be able to express yourself to the best of your ability.
Yoga can be practiced on the beach or in a super studio at the Best Western du Golf de Lacanau hotel on the 18th hole. Stand Up Yoga, on the lake of Lacanau. We start at Le Moutchic and practice Yoga on the board in the small and quiet bay of Carreyre, a wonder!
