Ocean side the HE'ENALU Snow School offers surf lessons

Learn to slide on the wave and blend in with it.

HE’ENALU is an ancestral Hawaiian sport at the origin of modern surfing, what could be more normal for Gunther, a Carcanais passionate about surfing, to call his school so.

He has made his passion his job and would like to share it with you.

He knows the waves of Carcans like the back of his hand because he has been surfing them since a young age!

From individual training to group training, from 4 years old, Gunther and his team will teach you to surf the famous Carcanese spot. All the techniques and advice will be passed on to you to become a surf pro.

You already know how to surf but you don’t have a board, Hé’énalu offers rental and sale of equipment.
