Surf Life Saving

The “Waterman” courses are inspired by the Surf Life Saving which is a professional sports discipline from Australia. It appeared in 1902 in Manly Beach (Sydney, Australia) at the time when it was forbidden to bath in the ocean considered to be too dangerous. This sport, made up of different test practiced between the beach and the sea, aimed to train and raise awareness of sea rescue.

The mini waterman course is accessible from 12 years old and is aimed at all those who wish to develop their knowledge of the marine environment and their physical skills at sea, while having fun!
During these 3 days you will learn to be more autonomous and responsible in the marine environment. This course is designed to develop the seafaring sense and the aquatic ease of the participants, surfers or not, whatever their level. The courses are fun and organized in the form of technical, theoretical learning and group tests.
