In France, at the Natural Surf Lodge "Surf fuel ateliers" are organised daily. They combine a fun and useful approach of french language hosted in a surf camp near Hossegor. All your questions shall be answered and your worries shall disappear, as we will put you in different guided situations, such as buying your weekly shopping in the local supermarket, prepare a "menu du jour", order a round of drinks or converse in the SPA with your new surf mates, en français, bien sûr ! You'll meet local french surfers and we accept everybody, all ages, shapes and sizes, so there is no excuse, come and join our french conversation classes !
