If you have questions or comments during your holiday, you can always talk to the crew about this. In addition, they are available 24 hours a day for emergencies.

Is there wifi?

There is free wifi at the campsite reception. Do not forget that the roaming costs will also expire in 2017, so you will not have to pay extra costs to surf on 3G or 4G abroad!

How much money should I take with me?

Additional options such as food, surf lessons can be booked directly while booking. Therefore you do not have to take cash for it. Only the deposit for the tent (€ 40, – pp) and the camping fee (€ 10, – pp) are still requested at the check-in on Saturday.

Pocket money for drinks & parties depends of course on your choices. In the Surflife bar you pay with a drink card of approx. € 1.50 per consumption.

Take enough cash in cash, Carcans-plage itself does not have an ATM. We make sure there are special lockers at the camp where you can safely leave your belongings.

During the week there are some times when you can pin, such as during the citytrip to Bordeaux or the night out in Lacanau. Please note that your card is activated in order to be able to pay abroad.

What is the alcohol policy on location?

Surflife has its own surf bar where you can enjoy fresh cans during the day and beer and / or wine in the evening. We expect all of our guests to behave responsibly.

Outside of the surf camp, the same rules apply in France as in the Netherlands. Here, the smaller bars in Carcans and Lacanau are handled more smoothly than in the big clubs. So do not forget to take your ID with you while you’re walking in Lacanau!

Can I safely leave valuables at the camp?

Our surf camp in Carcans also has lockers from this summer. In addition, these lockers are all equipped with outlets! This way you can safely store your valuables and you can simultaneously charge a mobile phone, an iPod, a camera, a laptop or the like. If you want to charge multiple devices at the same time, we recommend that you bring a multiple connector.

Renting a safe for a week costs € 10, – (to be paid locally). However, Surflife is not responsible for thefts.

Is there electricity in the tents to charge my mobile phone?

There is no electricity in the bungalow tents, but we have provided special lockers this year. These lockers are all equipped with outlets! This way you can store your valuables securely and can charge your mobile phone, iPod, camera, laptop, etc. at the same time.

Renting a safe for a week costs € 10, – (to be paid locally). However, Surflife is not responsible for thefts.

Can I cook myself?

Unfortunately we do not have a kitchenette for the guests and you can use the local catering industry if you do not want to use our options.

Do you take into account vegetarians and / or food allergies?

Absolutely, indicate this in the booking or send us an email with your wishes or requirements. Do you really need specific ingredients? Then it is advisable to take this with you and hand it over to our supervisor. Not everything is available in the local supermarkets.

I would like to come to the surfcamp by myself, Do or Don't?

Do not hesitate!

Most people are indeed with one or more friends. But there are also soloists every week! After the first night or already after the bus trip you probably already know half of the people. The 2nd half of the group is for the evening after.

What's in a tent?

Our bungalow tents are already set up ready for you. All tents are equipped with 10cm thick inflatable mattresses in the sleeping cabins, a handy hanging cabinet in the awning and a cool box filled with plates, cups & cutlery (cooling elements are waiting for you in the freezer). All tents have solar lighting this year.

So you only have to bring a sleeping bag and pillow!

Is there a supermarket nearby?

The campsite has a small mini market and in the village you will also find a supermarket!

I have never surfed before, Do you have a program for someone like me?

About 80%-90% of our students have never surfed before so don’t worry about being the only beginner. The only experience you need is to be comfortable swimming in the surf zone and be able to tread water for a minimum of 5 minutes.

I have some surf experience and want to work on more advanced maneuvers, do you offer programs for this?

Yes we work with students on intermediate and advanced levels of surfing including competitive surfing tips.

Can I bring my own equipment?

Yes, you are welcome to bring your own equipment if you have it in fact we recommend it. For those who need equipment we do provide surfboards and wetsuits.

What is the ratio of students to instructors and what are the qualifications of the instructors?

Our student to instructor ratio varies depending on the students ability level. If you are a first time surfer we try to keep a ratio of 8-1.

All instructors have years of surfing/ teaching experience as well as CPR certification. Instructors are handpicked and trained by the International Surfing Association here in Europe.

Is there a lifeguard at the beach you use, I am worried about some of the safety aspects of surfing?

All beaches we use do have lifeguards on duty at our location all summer. We also keep one of our instructors on the beach at all times to act as a lifeguard/instructor from the sand. If the conditions are too dangerous, which is rare, we don’t go in the water and have other activities.

We come with own transport, at what time can we check in?

With your own transport you are welcome from Saturday morning 10am, the accommodations are usually available around noon.

What is the address of the campsite?

Why take out travel insurance?

The average cost for overseas medical treatment is £2,040, but can be much higher.

For example, in one case treating multiple fractures and an artery tear in the USA, a British citizen was forced to take an air ambulance back to the UK.

The cost of the treatment and transport was close to £500,000.

  • Getting medical care on holiday could cost you thousands of pounds.
  • Travel insurance that covers getting you home and medical expenses is essential.
  • Other insurance – like credit card accident cover and private health insurance – doesn’t cover most travel emergencies.
  • Without insurance, you might have to cover emergency expenses on your own – the British Consulate is unlikely to help you.

What does travel insurance cover?

Most policies include cover for:

  • Lost or stolen bags*
  • Emergency medical expenses
  • The costs of cancelling, delaying or cutting your trip short*
  • Personal liability, in case you’re sued for damaging property or causing injury

*Baggage and cancellation cover might be additional extras within some policies.

What isn’t covered by travel insurance?

There are some common things you should watch out for:

  • If you’re over 65 or have a medical condition, you might need specialist insurance. If you have a medical condition you have to tell your insurer if asked or risk invalidating your insurance policy. When you buy insurance you must answer all questions about your circumstances and health honestly. You have to include everything, even if you think it’s not important, for example taking regular tablets for high blood pressure or angina. If you don’t your policy won’t be valid.
  • Adventure sports, winter sports and any ‘dangerous activities’ are often not covered as part of a standard travel insurance policy and you might need extra cover.
  • With most policies, you aren’t covered for travel to countries or regions that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office recommends avoiding – view the latest list on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website
  • Coverage for strikes, civil unrest, earthquakes, acts of terrorism and epidemics such as SARS varies.

Do you still need travel insurance if you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?

  • With an EHIC (formerly E111) you get the same level of state-provided medical care as someone who lives in the country you’re visiting. It’s valid in all European Economic Area countries and Switzerland.
  • The downside is that the local level of care might not be the same as what you’d get in the UK. You’ll also need to pay for part of your bills, if that’s how the local system works.
  • EHIC won’t cover the costs of repatriation – getting you back home – after a medical emergency on holiday could be very costly.
  • If you use an EHIC to get medical care, some insurers won’t ask you to pay the excess on your medical claims.
  • While it’s worth getting an EHIC, it’s not enough on its own. You should still get travel insurance that includes medical and repatriation cover.

Can travel insurance represent good value?

The main benefit of travel insurance is in having emergency medical cover on holiday.

  • What happens if you have a bad fall on the ski slopes and need a helicopter to a good hospital?
  • How would you cope if one of the kids fell ill – even with something minor – in the US or another country with sky-high medical costs?

With those costs covered, you’ll quickly realise the value of having a holiday insurance policy.

The cover you get for personal possessions can be covered under your home contents insurance policy.

It’s best to check whether you have this already before you add it to your travel policy.

Some travel insurers will give you a discount if you exclude baggage cover.
