Surfschool of Audierne bay

4.6.1 surfschool

With more than 20 years of practice on the different spots of Cap Sizun, your instructor knows the different spots by heart! Travelling to the 4 corners of the world (Spain, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Mexico) has allowed him to be confronted with different waves.

After a professional career in marketing, the desire to transmit his passion was at the origin of the school 4.6.1 Surfing. Having learned to surf the spots of Cap Sizun, Vincent now wishes to teach on the different spots of the bay of Audierne that he knows so well.

The name of the school 4.6.1 is a play on words with the Cap (4) Sizun (6 1) area where the school is located.

The courses take place from Easter to All Saints’ Day holidays. In order to benefit from the best possible conditions and to optimize the quality of surfing, the courses can be given all over the bay of Audierne (Plovan, Penhors, Mesperleuc, Gwendrez, la baie des Trépassés…).

From the beginning of July to the end of August, the courses take place on the beach of Gwendrez in Plouhinec or Stang ar Liou in Plovan depending on the weather conditions.

The courses last 2 hours, in groups of 8 people maximum per instructor. They are given in French, English and Spanish.

Possibility of private lessons in low season.

Teaching is provided by experienced and qualified instructors, trained in first aid.



We have a wide choice of boards available depending on the waves, your size and your level.

We have top-of-the-range Softech foam boards with soft daggerboards for the first sensations of gliding. Very safe and easy to carry thanks to their handles, this type of board is pleasant to learn to master the element in complete safety.

Even in the middle of summer, the water is quite cool at the tip of Brittany. In order to allow you to surf for 2 hours without getting cold, you will be equipped with O’neill full wetsuits 5/4mm thick. These are special surf school wetsuits, they are easy to put on and allow you a great freedom of movement.

Vincent is a surf enthusiast, very good teacher with personalized advice according to our level. He listens and inspires relaxation. I thank him very much for the progress I was able to make in such a short time and for my first surfing sensations. It was a great week and I would come back to improve myself. Thanks again Vincent! And see you soon ;)

Vincent est un excellent professeur. Stage semaine avec mes 2 enfants, cela s'est très bien passé. Vincent prend le temps d'expliquer la météo, bancs de sable… On change de plage suivant les vagues pour trouver les vagues les plus adaptés à notre niveau.Je recommande!

Très bonne expérience pour ma fille de 15 ans sur la plage du Ris à Douarnenez. Malgré une météo agitée le moniteur calme et expérimenté a réussi à mettre ma fille en confiance pour que ce soit un vrai moment de recommande !
