What is Stand Up Paddle (SUP)?

SUP is a sport of rowing standing on a large surfboard with a paddle.
This sport is not that recent. In the 1940s, it was the Duke Kahanamoku and the Waikiki Beach Boys in Hawaii who used big boards made of wood to take waves and photograph tourists line up.

The environment of Biscarrosse lends itself particularly to this activity with its lakes, its pond and its channels allowing to practice the stand up paddle in any condition.

Our instructors will take you to the calmest water possible and protected from the wind for ease.

This activity is accessible to everyone from 10 to 99 years old.

Stand-up paddle learning is a difficult activity in the ocean. The school SUP Point break initiates and offers mainly courses in Lake Biscarrosse in calm water.

Stand Up Paddle for all?

The SUP Point Break School welcomes a diverse audience throughout the year. We set up a pedagogy adapted to all types of public and all age groups from 5 years (school groups, associations, town halls, individuals).

Our structure

The SUP Point Break team consists of a qualified instructor and a secretary from March 15th to November 15th. During the two summer months of July & August, the school hires a person who transports young people to the lakes.

The human resources thus set up make it possible to meet all expectations in perfect conditions of safety and guarantee a good educational follow-up, as well as a good reception of the public.

The main structure is located on the ocean square, converted into a reception point, secure male / female locker showers allowing participants to store their belongings. more

Coaching and security

All the instructors are holders in addition to the BNSSA (national patent of safety and aquatic rescue), the state patent of Sports Educator Surf or the Professional Certificate of the Youth and Popular Education and sports surf option, or are in training in the process of acquiring one of these two state certificates or holders of a specific surf and / or bodyboard qualification.

The monitors follow before the beginning of the season a continuous control dispensed by the Biscarrosse Olympique Rescue and first aid, related to the accidents likely to occur during their exercise.

Each monitor has a security bag containing:
• First aid kit
• Cellphone
• Oxygen block (in the case of a closed emergency station located at the reception point)

Our material

The SUP Point Break School is equipped with stand up boards for all levels.

For beginners we have foam boards, adapting to all sizes.

Once the basics are acquired and the participants are able to take a course at the ocean, we can continue learning more technical SUP epoxy or resin.

We have adjustable paddles that adapt to any size.

Lifejackets of all sizes are available.

Combinations are also available in many sizes and thicknesses depending on the season, which allows students appreciable comfort during practice. For the coldest times of the year, the school provides slippers.

Sports and environmental goals

One of the objectives of the SUP Point Break School is to convey the respect of the educational and environmental notions related to the practice of SUP.

• Young people must be made aware of the preservation of the environments in which SUP is practiced (lakes, ocean). The Point Break team helps them to acquire the basics of environmental reasoning, conveys the notion of respect for others and teaches them the instructions of their activity to ensure their safety.

• The SUP school is committed to educating students about respect and protection of nature as the activity is an ecological practice.

• The transmission of sports objectives is in line with the code of ethics of the French Surf Federation’s label.

Our educational values

One of the priorities of the SUP school is to teach young people how to live together by accepting the rules imposed by community life. The school acts in complementarity with the family and the educational places (schools, colleges …).

Our qualified and experienced educational team has as priorities:

• Promote socialization, exchange, autonomy.

• Respect adults and other young people during activity sessions.

• Learn to respect the rules.

• Be uncompromising about non-compliant behavior.

It is on the values of the stand up paddle that we rely to achieve these goals.

Our educational project

The courses allow the teaching team to transmit the following intentions:

• Be able to control specific information related to the aquatic environment and weather conditions.

• Appropriate the regulations in force for the practice of SUP.

• The transmission of sports objectives in connection with the code of ethics of the French Surf Federation.

• Be able to analyze the environment and conditions for safe SUP practice.

• To be able to choose equipment according to the conditions of practice and the weather.

• To assimilate the techniques related to the practice of the SUP according to its level of practice and its capacities.

Places of activity

Lake Maguide is a great place to start because this place is often protected from the prevailing north and west winds and practitioners have feet in case of a fall.

Canals connect the two Biscarosse lakes passing in the middle of the forest of the moors, they offer us a very smooth body of water ideal for the practice of stand up paddle even when the wind is very strong.

The stand up paddle at the ocean is practiced at the central beach. More technical, it is better to do some sessions at the lake before.


The SUP school takes care of the trip to the lake with an 8 seater truck. Travel time is variable depending on the location where the activity takes place (weather condition), allow 10 minutes on average.

• Departure of the bus in July-August from Le Vivier

• Off-season bus departure from PointBreak surf shop
