Cost of Lessons and Guiding

Price of Lessons by Location

The cost of lessons does vary considerably depending on which sports, country and region. The schools and lessons in larger more popular resorts such as Biarritz (surf), Val d'Isere (ski) do charge higher rates as a general rule, but you will have more choice. The services in each resort do also vary, especially at peak times when we strongly advise that you enquire early as schools can get fully booked months in advance!

Private or Group Lessons?

A private lesson is a great option if you want one-on-one instruction to improve your technique and confidence. It also allows you to dictate the pace of day, where you surf/ski/snowboard/kitesurf, and occasionally pick up and drop off locations. Also, if you and your friends are of a similar level you can share the lesson.

Group lessons allow you to join a group (usually 6 people for skiing and Kite-surfing, and 6-12 for surfing) who are all of a similar level. They are great if you’re trying the sport for the first time, or you want to develop from a beginner into a confident intermediate. The instructor will help you develop your understanding of technique, building your confidence and helping you to achieve your goals. You'll also get to progress with other people of a similar level, which makes it fun. You are on holiday after all!
