The team

More than 35 years of experience in surfing including 15 years of teaching. Hervé (dit vévé)  started surfing in the early 80s.

He has won several titles including those of French team champion and Landes Champion 2019.

After 20 years of working in his surf shop, he set up a surf school in 2005 in Lespecier where he teaches alone.

In 2014 the school moved closer to the center and is now called La Garluche.

He surfed the waves of the Canary Islands, Tahiti and Hawaii, Morocco...

Johanne  (instructor)

Graduated from a BPJEPS Surf, she has been teaching since 2015 at La Garluche. It was coach Vévé, his father, who taught her how to surf and transmitted his passion to her.

She uses winter to discover new waves, in Central America, Indonesia, or Sri Lanka..

Her favorite classes: Kids and beginners

Dylan ( Monitor )

After a Staps license he passes his BPJEPS surf in 2020.

  Dylan also started surfing very early alongside Vévé. 

In winter, like most surf teachers, he explores the spots of Indonesia, Panama, the Canary Islands...

His favorite classes: Advanced 


axel ( Beach marshall )

The Beach Marshall is an essential element for the proper functioning of a surf school and especially AXEL! 

He welcomes you to the school and takes care of answering your requests, he takes reservations, he equips the surfers for their lesson, he rents the equipment and takes care of everything to guarantee you disinfected wetsuits. It allows instructors to breathe a little between two lessons. 

Axel was already taking surfing lessons with Hervé from the first years of school life, so he is part of the Garluche family!
